Is there anything more refreshing when the sun is hot than popsicles? These Greek Yogurt and Honey Blackberry Popsicles are a healthy alternative to the sugar-laden store-bought varieties most of us find in our freezers.

How to Make Blackberry Popsicles

It’s easy to make these Greek Yogurt Blackberry Popsicles at home. And have them ready at a summer moment’s notice. Here are the steps:

Step 1: Muddle 1 to 2 tablespoons of mint leaves in 2/3 cup boiling water with the back of a spoon. Steep for 2 to 3 minutes, then remove the leaves from the water. Add the lemon juice and honey.
Step 2: Puree 3 to 3-1/2 cups of fresh blackberries with the 2/3 cup mint water. With a spatula, pour the blackberry puree into a fine mesh strainer, pressing on the solids to extract as much puree as possible. Discard the seeds.
Step 3: Combine the strained blackberry puree with the yogurt, pour into popsicle molds, insert a stick, and freeze for 8 hours to overnight.
