Ingredients

  • 2 cups halved hulled strawberries
  • 6 tablespoons sugar, divided
  • 5 tablespoons lime juice (from 3 limes), divided
  • 1/2 cup full-fat plain yogurt
  • 3 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 2 cups blueberries

Directions

  1. In a blender, combine strawberries, 2 tablespoons sugar, and 1 1/2 tablespoons lime juice. Puree, scraping down sides as needed. Pour through a fine-mesh sieve into a bowl, pressing on solids; discard solids. Divide puree among six 4-ounce or eight 3-ounce ice-pop molds. Freeze until firm, about 30 minutes.

  2. Combine yogurt, cream, and 2 tablespoons each sugar and lime juice. Remove molds from freezer and top with yogurt mixture; insert ice-pop sticks. Freeze until firm, about 30 minutes.

  3. In clean blender, puree blueberries, remaining 2 tablespoons sugar, and remaining 1 1/2 tablespoons lime juice. Pour through clean sieve into a bowl, pressing on solids; discard solids. Remove molds from freezer and top with blueberry puree. Freeze until solid, 6 hours more (or up to 1 week). Just before serving, briefly run molds under hot water to release pops.

    The 'total time' field needs to be updated... the first two layers need to each freeze for 30 minutes, then once fully assembled for 6 hours. Prep time may only be 30 minutes total, but you won't be eating these treats in under a half hour!

    The old "bait & switch", eh? It's very misleading to show a picture of a pop that is obviously not the result of making this recipe. That red, white & blue pop *is* very colorful & vibrant, but if you follow this recipe, you will clearly not end up with a pop that looks like that - unless of course you add blue food coloring to the blueberry layer, & strain the puree so there are no fruit solids at all in the pop. At least you included the video so we could REALLY see what the pops look like.
