Procedure

  1. Pour the honey in a medium saucepan over medium heat and add the berries to it

Note: You can use any berries you like and as per availability. Raspberries, Blueberries as well as Strawberries make equally good popsicles.

  1. Lower the heat and simmer the berries and honey for 5 minutes.
  2. Side by side, blend the banana and yogurt to a smooth mixture using a blender.
  3. Turn off the flame and place a wire-mesh over a bowl. Strain the honey and berry mixture through this mesh and squeeze out all juice from the pulp.
  4. Cover the bowl with the honey-berry mixture and keep it in the fridge for 30 minutes. While it chills, divide the banana-yogurt mixture into 10 popsicle moulds.
  5. Remove the honey-berry mixture from the fridge after 30 minutes and pout it over the yogurt mixture in the moulds. Give it a little swirl to mix the tastes and colors.
  6. Seal the moulds with lids and insert the craft sticks in them. Freeze the moulds for 6 hours or more as required till they are completely frozen.
  7. Enjoy them chilled.
