RECIPE #2 for this week’s POPPIN posts. This is the simplest of all the recipes in the world of recipes and all you need is a good ol blender.
Technically, you don’t really even need that because the first time I made this I didn’t have a blender so I just put it all in a ziplock back and beat the shit out of it. Improvising at its finest folks.
Play around with the texture and the flavor of this one to your personal liking. Using alllllll greek yogurt in there makes my mouth feel a little chalky so I like to mix it up with some regular yogurt.
I personally like to throw chocolate in absolutely everything but granola, toasted oats, toasted coconut, almonds/nuts are some great ideas for a little added crunch!
I know i’ve been slacking BUT STAY WITH ME PEOPLE. I’m finally home from my trip with my dad so you’re all owed some much needed TLC, consistency and ICE CREAM.
I’ve got 1 more pop recipe coming you’re way soon so don’t give up on me now!!
Stay Screamin’ xox
Recipe from servingdessert.com
• 2 cups plain Greek Yogurt (I like using 1 greek yogurt : 2 vanilla regular yogurt)
• 12 ounces fresh blackberries, rinsed
• 1 cup honey (more or less to taste)
• a drop or two of pure vanilla extract, if desired
LET’S MAKE IT:
- Place the blackberries in the bowl of a food processor.
- Process until smooth. Strain the blackberries through a fine mesh sieve set over a large mixing bowl.
- Using the back of a spoon, press the mixture against the sieve to extract all the juice. Discard the seeds and any pulp.
- Add the yogurt to the blackberry juice and stir to combine.
- Add about ¾ cup of honey and taste for sweetness. You may need more honey depending on how sweet the blackberries are.
- Add vanilla if desired and blend until smooth.
- Process in an ice cream maker according to manufacturer instructions. Pour into pop mold and freeze overnight
- Run mold under hot water briefly and remove each fro-yo bar.
- Decorate as desired.
