Raspberry Vanilla Yogurt Popsicles

( 7 ratings )

These fruity Canada-themed popsicles are a healthy treat made with frozen raspberries and yogurt, and the edible maple leaf decorations are so fun!

Ingredients

  • 600 g bag frozen raspberries , thawed
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup water

For white layer

  • 1 1/2 cups 10% vanilla yogurt
  • 1/2 cup water

For decorations

  • 8 pieces of red fruit leather
  • popsicle moulds
  • popsicle stics
  • small maple leaf cutter

Directions

  • Boil raspberries with sugar and ½ cup water in a saucepan until raspberries turn mushy. Pour mixture through a fine-mesh sieve into a large measuring cup, using the bottom of a ladle to push out all the liquid and pulp. Discard seeds in sieve.
  • Pour raspberry mixture into Popsicle moulds to ¼-way up the mould. Freeze until layer is firm, about 2 hr. Refrigerate remaining raspberry purée.
  • Whisk vanilla yogurt with ½ cup water. Pour yogurt mixture ¾-way up the mould (over frozen raspberry layer). Insert Popsicle sticks. Freeze until yogurt layer is firm, about 2 hr. Pour more raspberry mixture in until it reaches the top of the mould. Freeze until Popsicles are completely firm, about 2 more hr, preferably overnight.
  • To unmould, dip Popsicle mould in hot water for 10 to 15 sec, or until Popsicles are easily pulled out of the mould.
  • Cut out maple leaves using a small maple leaf cutter on red fruit leather. Carefully place maple leaf on the Popsicle to make a Canadian flag!
