What’s better than a popsicle in the summer? I decided to make my kids some homemade treats. I made a sauce out of the tart blackberries I had in the refrigerator then strained the mixture. I mixed some pomegranate seeds in some vanilla yogurt then swirled in the blackberry sauce and poured them into the molds. These beautiful treats were for dessert tonight and both of my kids raved about them. My son said “they are definitely blog worthy” and my daughter said “they are way better than store bought”. I’ll take that as a compliment! I loved that these popsicles have yogurt, fresh fruit, and much less sugar than regular store bought popsicle! I have a feeling these will be requested again very soon.
Heat the water, sugar, blackberries, lemon juice, and zest in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir the berries often, mashing them, for 7-10 minutes. Remove from the heat and let it cool for a few minutes before pouring through a fine strainer. Let the blackberry sauce cool completely.
Pour the yogurt into a bowl and mix in the pomegranate seeds well.
Pour a bit of the blackberry sauce, to taste, into the bowl of yogurt. Gently stir just a little bit to swirl the blackberry sauce with yogurt – don’t mix thoroughly. Pour into each popsicle mold.
Place into the freezer for 24 hours. Enjoy.
