As I have written in my previous post, I am right now catching up on all the things I wanted to do for some time. And since I am cooking almost every day, baking and making some delicious treats has been coming a bit short, considering the fact that most of the time I love to make something sweet and delicious, but usually end up eating just one cupcake or one slice of cake. I am actually not a person who can devour half a cake without noticing it on my hips in, let’s say, two seconds.
You know the saying “One minute on the lips…”. Don’t get me wrong, I am not that kind of girl who only eats salad (I actually like to eat salad) and never allows herself to eat something rich and tasty. Of course I do it, and I love eating but I know that I will have to work for this kind of pleasure. So I am trying to keep the balance here. Sometimes I am more of a strong-minded girl, sometimes not. This sweet project is kind of a compromise between something healthy and something delicious. Although I would not claim that it’s low-fat. Anyways, I have made an alcoholic version of these popsicles before and I think you can find a thousand different versions of filling the popsicle moulds, but what I wanted to do is actually use my favourite berries which are on the market again. Yes, it’s the season! So let’s go:
You need (for four popsicle moulds):
- 300g Greek yoghurt
- Berries (I used blueberries and raspberries)
- 1 Lemon
- Wooden popsicle sticks
I decided to make two different versions of the ice-cream, so prepare the berries in two different bowls. I don’t have an exact measurement of how many berries to use, just take as many as you want. Take a fork and mash them a little bit to get the juice and sprinkle them with a little bit of sugar to emphasize their taste.
Spread 150g of Greek yoghurt on every portion of berries. Take you lemon, boil some water in a water kettle and dash the lemon with the boiling water to clean it. Take a grater to get the zest of the lemon and sprinkle it evenly on every portion.
Add honey to season and mix everything with a spoon. Now fill the mass by tablespoons into the popsicle moulds and add the wooden popsicle sticks. Let them freeze for at least 12 hours.
And that’s all you have to do! I am actually thinking of making a version with Greek yoghurt and Nutella, but these popsicles would sure as hell not stay in my freezer for very long. This version here is a good combination of sweet, sour and refreshing. And as it is that simple I will do them again in the future. Hop you are inspired!
