Frozen Berry Yogurt Ice Pops and Simply Sweet ColorCakes Giveaway

Ingredients:

2 cups vanilla yogurt

1/2 cup frozen blueberries

1 Tbsp. blueberry preserves

8 (4-oz.) ice pop molds

1/4 cup blackberry jam

8 (4-inch) wooden craft sticks

Directions:

1. Process 1 cup vanilla yogurt, blueberries, and blueberry preserves in a blender until smooth. Pour mixture into ice pop molds. Top with blackberry jam and remaining 1 cup vanilla yogurt, and swirl. Cover each mold with foil; insert a wooden stick into each pop. Freeze 4 hours or until pops are frozen.

2. Dip bottom of molds in warm water for a few seconds to release pops.

Notes

If you want to make several batches of these pops but only have one set of molds, just freeze pops, remove from molds, and place in zip-top plastic freezer bags before returning to freezer. Wash molds before starting a second or third batch of pops.

    What a great book! It reminds me of a cake I made for a summer party once. It was 2-layer with the middle of the top layer scooped out. After ‘sealing’ the inside of the top layer, blue jello made it look like a swimming pool and it was decorated with Teddy Grahams and various candies to look like a swimming pool scene. What fun. :O)
