Rocket Pops

Rocket Pops!

Rocket Pops!

I love dewberries. I always pick more than I can do anything with at the time I pick them, so I freeze them to use later. One of uses is to make frozen yogurt pops. Dewberries are tarter than their cousin the blackberry. You can make these pops with lots of different types of fruit; just adjust the amount of sweetener to your taste.

1 cup frozen dewberries (or blackberries)
1 cup non-fat plain Greek yogurt (I use Chobani)
A small amount of honey, sugar, or sweetener, to taste.

Gently rinse frozen berries then add with yogurt to the blender. Blend until smooth. Taste and add some type of sweetener, to taste, if desired. Dewberries are a wild southern blackberry; they are very tart, and not readily available in stores. You will probably be using a sweeter fruit or berry, which is why I don’t give an amount of sweetener. I like the tartness of dewberries and probably don’t sweeten it enough for most tastes. I’ve made these with no sweetener. Jaw-lockingly good. 😉 Blend well. Carefully pour into freezer pop mold. This makes just enough for six rocket pops. Your mileage may vary, depending on the size and shape of the pop mold you use.

Oh, get your mind out of the gutter and think like a 5-year-old girl who wants build a rocket ship in the back yard and live in space.

If you have trouble releasing the pop from the mold, run it under warm water for a little while — or just step outside! It’s August and and it’s hot!
