Swirl Tie-Dye Popsicle Ingredients

  • 2 cups of your favorite organic yogurt. You can use plain or vanilla flavored. For the pops you see throughout this post, I used organic vanilla soy yogurt.
  • 1 cup of your favorite organic fruit. You can use one fruit, such as all blackberries or cherries or mix and match for brighter tie dye colors, such as mix mango with raspberry or peach with strawberry.
  • 2 and 1/2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice for the yogurt.
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed organic lemon juice for the fruit.

Optional:

  • You can use lime instead of lemon juice to mix things up – though lime juice is stronger than lemon, so use sparingly to taste.
  • If your fruit isn’t sweet enough you can add a tablespoon or two of organic agave or honey. Usually you’ll only need to add sweetener to taste and only to fruit like mango – not berries, which are hyper sweet already.
  • You can also mix in ground flax or wheat germ if you’d like.

Step One: Make Your Mixtures & Fill Mold with Yogurt

  1. Mix the 2 and 1/2 tablespoons of lemon juice into the yogurt.
  2. IF you’re adding agave, honey or grains, mix that into your yogurt as well.
  3. Set the yogurt mixture aside, in the fridge, to keep it cold.
  4. Wash, peel if necessary and chop up your fruit.
  5. Puree your fruit in the blender along with 1 tablespoon of lemon juice. If your fruit will not easily puree, add up to 3 tablespoons of water to the blender. Once you have a thick fruit puree, set it aside. You don’t want it too watery or it won’t be as colorful when you swirl it into the yogurt.
  6. Fill each ice pop mold with your yogurt mixture, leaving room at the top for about 2 tablespoons of fruit puree.

Step Two: Add Fruity Layer

Place a good sized dollop of fruit puree in your molds, on top of the yogurt. I usually use about 2 to 2.5 tablespoons of puree per pop. The amount you actually use will depend on the size of molds you’re using, plus how fruity you’d like your pops to be.

Step Three: Swirl in Fruit & Freeze

Use a clean butter knife to swirl the fruit around in a tie dye pattern throughout the yogurt. Then pop in your ice pop handles and freeze for a few hours or overnight. This recipe should yield anywhere from 6-8 popsicles, depending on the mold you use. I used the Rocket Molds you see above and got 8 pops with some leftover puree. If you have leftover puree, pour it into ice cube trays, freeze, then save it in a freezer safe container for the next batch of swirl pops you make.
