We are in the middle of a very hot week here. Like 35 degrees Celsius hot (98 degrees Fahrenheit) with humidity. And let me tell you, I do not do well in heat like this, which is why it's so funny that I've ended up living in Australia. Last night it got so bad that husband and I dragged our mattress to the middle of the living room floor and slept below the air conditioning unit. So anyway, I decided that popsicles (or icy poles for my Australian readers) were what I needed. But this required going on a mission to find popsicle moulds since no one in my neighbourhood seems to sell them. A couple of hours and a shopping trip later, I came home triumphant and set to making my popsicles/icy poles. Want to know the recipe (if you could even call it that)?
You will need:
- 1.5 cups yoghurt (I used full fat because that's what I always have)
- 1/4 cup honey
- 3/4 cup raspberries (but any type of berries or even cherries would be good)
- a popsicle mould
Mix the yoghurt and honey together first, and add more honey if it's not sweet enough for your liking. Then stir in the raspberries.
Pour the mixture into your popsicle moulds. This quantity filled six moulds. Oh, and if you don't have popsicle moulds you can use paper cups with popsicle sticks. Stick your moulds into the freezer for at least 4 hours to freeze completely.
Enjoy your yummy and fairly healthy popsicles! And maybe consider eating them while sitting in a cold pool, that'd be even better.
