At Get Real Nutrition, we love easy frozen treats, especially when they've got healthy fruits and smooth yogurt! That's why today's 25 Days of Snacks recipe is for these healthy little Fruit & Yogurt Pops! They've got rich, protein packed Siggi's Icelandic Style Skyr with a homemade berry sauce swirled in.
Siggi's is a skyr, which is just a fancy word for special strained yogurt. It's high in healthy fats, which makes it perfect for the smooth texture of these pops! Our berry sauce is made from berries we stuck in the freezer this past summer, but you could definitely go find some good frozen berries at your local grocery store.
Fruit & Yogurt Pops
What You'll Need:
- 8 Small paper cups
- 8 Toothpicks
- 2 containers Siggi's Plain Icelandic Style Skyr Yogurt (or Plain Greek Yogurt)
- Agave nectar or Honey
- Berry Puree (*Recipe Below)
What To Do:
Clear some room for your pops in the freezer. Alternate small scoops of yogurt & berry puree into small cups. Mix entirely together or swirl together using a toothpick. Leave said toothpick in yogurt cup in the center, sticking straight up. Place pops in the freezer and allow to set, at least 3 hours. Peel back paper cups and enjoy!
For the Homemade Berry Puree:
- 1 cup-ish frozen berries (we used about 1/4 cup each raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, strawberries)
- Juice from 1 lemon wedge
- 1/4 cup water
In a small saucepan, heat frozen berries, lemon juice, and water over medium high heat. Bring to a simmer and let cook, stirring occasionally, until berries have thawed, cook down, and begin to reduce. If your berries are very tart it may help to add a splash of agave nectar or honey to sweeten things up and mellow the flavor. After roughly 10-15 minutes, remove from heat and let cool. Blend with an immersion blender or in a regular blender.
