Have I mentioned my love for summer yet? I love warm days and sprinklers and playdates at the park. Yep, I. love. summer.
To sweeten this already sweet season, Burke and I have a new favorite treat- homemade rocket pops. They are pure goodness y’all. And wouldn’t they be a great red-white-and-blue treat for the 4th of July?
Homemade Rocket Pops
Berries (we’ve tried strawberries, blackberries and blueberries so far and have loved them all!)- we use about 20 berries at a time
Vanilla Yogurt (1 single serving sized yogurt makes 4 rocket pops)
Puree berries with a little apple juice (just enough to cover the bottom of the food processor). Alternate layers of berry puree and vanilla yogurt in popsicle molds. Freeze for a few hours. Enjoy on a warm summer afternoon. See, goodness?
ps- Just so you know, I saw a variation of this idea in Cooking Light, but there was simple syrup involved and, being my mother’s daughter, I always wonder if recipes actually require the sugar they call for. This one works just fine without it. 🙂
