Creamy Berry Popsicles

Recipe Image


These frozen yoghurt popsicles are a fantastic alternative to ready-made ice-cream bars; they’re low in fat and high in calcium. While they take a couple of hours to set, the actual preparation is no more than a few minutes.

You will need 4 ice-lolly moulds



  • 150g raspberries or blackberries (or a combination)

Jennifers Tips

For a slightly more sophisticated version, try a combination of blueberries and mint or strawberries and basil. Simply add a tablespoon of shredded fresh herbs to mashed fruit, mix through the yoghurt, and freeze.

  • Set a small handful of berries to one side. In a food processor, blitz the remaining berries with the syrup, until you have a fairly smooth puree.
  • Add the yoghurt to the mashed berries, stirring gently to create a swirly effect.
  • Stir in the reserved berries, being careful to keep them whole.
  • Spoon the mixture into the ice-lolly moulds, ensuring you divide the whole berries as equally as you can.
  • Place in the freezer. Leave for at least 2 hours, or until frozen solid.
