|1 Cup||Low-fat raspberry or strawberry yoghurt|
|½ Cup||Thick natural Greek-style yoghurt|
|¾ cup||Fresh strawberries, hulled.|
|½ cup||Fresh ripe raspberries|
Simple but delicious, these fruit smoothie ice pops provide a cooling treat on a hot day. You can also try them with other fresh fruit or other low-fat fruit yogurts.
- Place raspberry/strawberry and Greek yogurts, strawberries, raspberries and sugar in a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth and well mixed.
- Pour mixture into 6 ice pop moulds; place a wooden lolly stick in the centre of each (if it sticks don’t stand up at this point, freeze mixture for an hour or so before adding them). Freeze for several hours or until solid. They will keep in the freezer for up to a month.
- To serve, remove from freezer; warm moulds with hands or briefly under warm water to release the ice pops from moulds.
