This is a family treat to remind you of the refreshing power of the Holy Spirit. With the great feast of Pentecost to celebrate tomorrow, I wanted to fix a special treat with the color red to mirror the feast. These Pentecost pops are the perfect way to celebrate. They can be fixed in a variety of configurations, but they are always appreciated and are always fun. Give them a try and see what you think!
- 1/2 cup strawberries, rinsed, hulled, and sliced
- 1/2 cup raspberries, rinsed
- 2-3 tablespoons sugar (optional)
- 4 cups whole milk or Greek vanilla yogurt
Place berries in a heavy pan over medium-high heat and cook until simmering. Stirring often, cook for 10 minutes until thickened. Add sugar if the berries need sweetening. Pour into a bowl and let cool to room temperature.
In popsicle molds, spoon in 1/8 cup yogurt, followed by 1/8 cup of berry mixture. Continue to layer until mold is filled. Gently tap mold on the counter to release any air bubbles, and insert a popsicle stick. Repeat in other molds. Makes 8-10 popsicles, depending on size of molds. Freeze 6 hours.
This recipe is very versatile. Switch up the yogurt flavor or the type of berries. You can also add a layer of granola in between the yogurt and berry layers. Or you can forgo layering altogether, and mix fresh berries into the yogurt before freezing in the molds.
My kids were over-joyed to whip these up! They are currently in the freezer, and we are awaiting the refreshment!!! Thanks for this MIHC Savor Your Saturday edition!
These are so yummy and easy enough for my wild crew. Thank you for sharing this with us.
