Lemon Blackberry Popsicles

2/3 cup lemon juice, plus zest from lemons

2 1/2 cups vanilla greek yogurt

2 1/2 cups blackberries

2 1/2 cup mixed berry Greek yogurt



1. In a medium-sized bowl whisk together lemon juice, zest, and vanilla yogurt, set aside.

2. Puree blackberries and mixed berry yogurt, set aside.

3. Layer the popsicles as follows; 1 tablespoon lemon, 1 tablespoon blackberry, repeat. Swirl layers if desired.

4. Gently tap the molds on the countertop to remove any air bubbles. Insert the popsicle sticks, and then freeze for at least 6 hours, or overnight.


To remove popsicles from the mold: run the molds under warm water for ten to fifteen seconds. Slowly and carefully remove each popsicle. If the popsicles remain in the mold, run them under the warm water for a few more seconds, being careful not to melt the pops. Eat or refreeze immediately!

Each recipe makes approximately 10 popsicles, depending on the size and shape of your molds. Adjust batch sizes accordingly.
