Am I dating myself by saying that whenever I hear ‘blackberry,’ I’m wondering if someone is talking about the mobile device or if they’re talking about the fruit?
We actually still use Blackberries at work and I’m actually surprised they’re still in business. They were cool in like 2009 with the keyboard and the BBM (it felt like a secret society — “what’s your BBM?”) and Kim Kardashian was always on her’s so you automatically felt like you needed one. Omg, speaking of “needing one” — does anyone remember the T-Mobile Sidekick? The giant phone where the screen flipped out? I think they came out when I was in high school and I begged for one. I wanted to be that cool girl that would get that classic T-Mobile ringtone blasting through her phone, feeling I was the popular girl, flipping my phone screen out to the side and being like, “excuse me. I need to text my friend back.”
Neither of those things happened and I ended up with a gold Nokia phone. Umm..snake FTW!
Last month, when I was at the farmer’s market buying fresh sour cherries to make my classic sour cherry cobbler, I came across these freshly picked blackberries that were just bursting with juicy goodness. I grabbed a two little pints of them and these blackberry yogurt popsicles were born!
I’ve always made popsicles with liquid and never thought to make yogurt popsicles. Yogurt is pretty much way more delicious to consume in a popsicle form than it is with a spoon and bowl. Am I right?
The blackberry puree is super easy to make and you don’t even need sugar. They’re so sweet as it is and pairing it with vanilla flavored greek yogurt — you’ve got yourself a refreshing treat on a stick! I kind of wanted these for breakfast…in a bowl of granola. Is that weird? I don’t think so. I’m in the group where I think as long as something makes breakfast food, you can eat it as such. Like, it’s all going to one place. However you eat it shouldn’t matter. So yeah, blackberry yogurt popsicles in a bowl of granola. Totally acceptable.
Blackberry Yogurt Popsicles
- 2 pints fresh blackberries
- 1 tablespoon water
- 2 cups vanilla flavored greek yogurt
- In a small saucepan over medium heat, add blackberries and water. Cook until berries burst. Let cool to room temperature.
- When ready, in a popsicle mold, layer yogurt and blackberry puree until all is used up. Cover the popsicle mold with the cover and stick popsicle sticks into the center.
- Freeze until firm, about 6-8 hours.
- To un-mold, carefully run mold under hot water, careful not to get the actual popsicle wet.
