With the sun shining outside, springtime is the perfect time for frozen treats. You can make all different kinds of frozen goodies using only ingredients you probably have on hand and fruits that are in season. We also like to buy fruits when they're in season and freeze them to use when they aren't. What better way to enjoy fruit on a warm spring day than by making them into a yummy frozen dessert. These Mango-Berry yogurt cups fit the bill perfectly and they are super fun to make with the little ones. Using empty yogurt cups as the molds, these pops are yummy enough for an after dinner treat and fun enough for a party. Read on to learn how to make my Mango-Berry Yogurt Pops this afternoon.
What you will need:
– 6 empty yogurt cups
– 6 wooden treat sticks
For the Mango Sorbet:
– 4 cups frozen or fresh organic mango
– 1/2 cup organic sugar
– 1/2 cup organic orange juice
– 2 cups organic yogurt (we used peach)
For the Berry Syrup:
– 3 cups organic frozen or fresh berries
– 1/4 cup organic sugar
– 1 tablespoon lemon juice
Step 1: Make and Freeze the Mango Sorbet
Step 2: Make the Berry Syrup
Step 3: Strain the Syrup
Step 4: Prepare the Molds
Step 5: Fill the Molds
Quickly after drizzling the syrup in the cups, pour the mango sorbet mix into each cup. Drip the remaining berry syrup mixture on what will be the bottoms of the yogurt cups, then use a toothpick to swirl it around. Add wooden treat sticks to the middle of each pop.
Step 6: Freeze and Enjoy
Place the yogurt pops in the freezer for several hours. When you are ready to enjoy them, dip the yogurt container in warm water – this will loosen the pop from the mold. Your children and spouse will devour these frozen goodies and then likely ask for another. Just save the yogurt cup molds for next time!
