How to make yogurt and berry fruit pops

8 Jan


This weather is driving me crazy! Last year was officially the hottest on record for Australia and one can only assume it is going to get hotter. For a creature the colour of milk, such as myself, this is not good. My skin says I should be living in Scandinavia but here I am, Sydney born and bred.

We have had a reprieve for the past few days but it will soon be hot again. This is cold comfort for my friends in the northern hemisphere currently experiencing snow, storms and freezing temperatures. Stay safe everyone.

In the meantime, here is a super easy treat, perfect for long hot summer days. Misses 6 & 8 made these pops themselves and couldn’t wait to try them. Two thumbs up πŸ™‚


I’m reluctant to even call it a recipe as it is a few ingredients but here it is:


A punnet of berries [we used strawberries, hulled and halved] but blueberries or raspberries would be great, too.

One cup Greek / natural yogurt

One to two tablespoons honey [depending on your how sweet your tooth is]

Generous shake cinnamon



Place berries in food processor and blend in short bursts for about 10-20 seconds [you don’t want them entirely annihilated].

Add remaining ingredients and whiz until combined.

Pour into ice block moulds [mine were gifted from the lovely people at Ikea] and freeze overnight.

To remove dip briefly into a cup of hot water.

    Once the weather gets warmer here on this side of the world, I’ll try this!

      I’ll swap you some heat for some cold. Is TOO hot here.

      • craftysorcha February 3, 2014 at 11:50 am #

        Then in August we can swap back πŸ™‚

    Smiling, ( greetings from the uk btw ) as I write with extreme weather envy. Your recipe takes my thoughts to sunnier times and places! Its always summer somewhere afterall and here it is . . . in your recipe. x

      thanks! Sending you some cyber sunshine – have seen the storms pounding the UK and they look terrifying. Stay safe!

    these cutesy cutesy guys….and yum as well! ❀ πŸ™‚

    • thehungrymum January 9, 2014 at 5:47 am #

      Yum & easy – what more could you want πŸ˜‰

    These look so great! Yum!

    • thehungrymum January 9, 2014 at 5:48 am #

      Cheers! And can be whipped up in mere seconds πŸ™‚

    Yesterday, the temp was -6 in Pennsylvania! These will have to wait until our warmer days! Which cannot come soon enough!

    • thehungrymum January 9, 2014 at 6:01 am #

      Arrgh! Minus 6! I can’t imagine how many layers of clothes you’d have to wear to stay cozy. Hope you’re staying safe & warm.

    Isn’t it amazing how cold it is in the northern hemisphere (with some kind of ‘Vortex monster’) and how warm it is here In Australia? My kids have long grown up but maybe I’ll make one of these for myself! Interesting, because I still have the ice block moulds I used years ago- hate to throw them away!!

    • thehungrymum January 9, 2014 at 6:00 am #

      I can’t really fathom those ‘vortex’ temps in the US – seems incomprehensible! We reckon single figures temps are cold here! Hope you do try these – you’ll be happy you did when the sun comes out πŸ™‚

    While most of the states are in a deep freeze at the moment, I’m feeling nice and warm in SoCal. I’m sure we’re not nearly as hot as you are, but hot enough for a cool treat like this. It’s so simple – I’ll have to try it. Celeste πŸ™‚

  8. nepaliaustralian January 9, 2014 at 11:15 pm #

    It looks so easy and so yummy πŸ™‚

    • thehungrymum January 10, 2014 at 5:11 am #

      Guilty on both charges πŸ™‚ Thanks for stopping by my blog.

  9. Liz January 9, 2014 at 11:42 pm #

    I like that there is cinnamon in there! Finding the irony in you posting these and my posting hot chocolate because it’s a gajillion degrees below zero in the midwestern U.S. Such extremes! Your pops are pretty πŸ™‚

    • thehungrymum January 10, 2014 at 5:14 am #

      The photos coming out of the US right now are scary – I can’t comprehend such freezing temperatures. Hope you’re staying warm and safe x

    We made a lot of these when we were small. It brought back some nice memories. Thanks for posting it!

    Yikes, sorry to hear about the scorching weather where you are! I live on the west coast of Canada, the only place in the country not undergoing freezing temperatures and ice/snow storms. Thankfully it’s warm enough for me to make and devour these yummy fruit pops!

    • thehungrymum January 10, 2014 at 11:07 am #

      Oh good! I love Canada, would love to go back one day. Is just sooooo far away πŸ™‚

    Yummy AND healthy! A great recipe! :3

    • thehungrymum January 13, 2014 at 10:37 am #

      AND easy πŸ˜‰ What else could you need?

  14. thefolia January 12, 2014 at 7:09 am #

    There’s that cinnamon again–yum! Extreme weather in North America as well…hmmm.

    • thehungrymum January 13, 2014 at 10:35 am #

      I should rename my blog, The Hungry Cinnamon aficionado πŸ™‚ Hope the weather improves for you soon x

    Meanwhile we’re having one of New York’s coldest winters! I am drooling over these though (I love pops) and saving this yummy and pretty recipe for a scorching summer day

    • thehungrymum January 13, 2014 at 10:18 am #

      Is probably not what you want to hear but I love the cold! I’m over our summer and it isn’t even half over 😦 I got sunburnt tonight at about 6pm while sitting by the pool – my skin is not designed to be in Australia!

      • Fig & Quince January 13, 2014 at 2:22 pm #

        Actually, I love the cold too, and vastly prefer it to heat. That is, I’d rather shiver than wilt in the heat. And there’s something invigorating about the cold, whereas heat just drains you.

        But what I didn’t want to hear: pool! Now I’m jealous! πŸ˜‰

      • thehungrymum January 14, 2014 at 1:18 am #

        I’ll have a swim for you, and you go ice-skating for me. Deal?

      • Fig & Quince January 14, 2014 at 1:20 am #

        Yes πŸ™‚

  16. Barbara Bamber | justasmidgen January 13, 2014 at 3:12 am #

    Such a simple recipe for quick yummy results! I will pin this for the summer.. after our ice and snow has melted! I love the addition of cinnamon!xx Oh.. and I love the pretty pink color as well!

    • thehungrymum January 13, 2014 at 10:16 am #

      OOoh, send snow to Sydney! You’re probably sick of it but we’d *love* it! Hope you stay warm & dry πŸ™‚

  17. Sara (Belly Rumbles) (@bellyrumbles) January 13, 2014 at 1:51 pm #

    How delicious! Popsicles mean summer to me!

    • thehungrymum January 14, 2014 at 1:17 am #

      Indeed! Miss6 & I made a different batch yesterday… stayed tuned for recipe πŸ™‚

  18. Allie BakingAMoment January 13, 2014 at 11:30 pm #

    These look so sweet and refreshing for a hot summer day! Although I am in the midst of winter here in the US… I’ll remember this recipe in July, lol!

    • thehungrymum January 14, 2014 at 1:16 am #

      Here’s a deal – I’ll send you some sun [we’ve got waaaay too much] and you send me some cool weather. Then you make these pops! πŸ™‚

  19. skinnymuffin109 January 14, 2014 at 2:47 am #

    These sound so good! And I like that you thought to add cinnamon. I bet that gives it a really warm and delicious spin to these berry popsicles. Great recipe!

    • thehungrymum January 14, 2014 at 3:57 am #

      Thanks! I add cinnamon to pretty much *everything.* Is kinda my vice πŸ™‚

  20. Ada ~ More Food, Please January 14, 2014 at 1:23 pm #

    These look so delicious! Love how healthy they are too! What a perfect treat πŸ™‚

    • thehungrymum January 20, 2014 at 4:02 am #

      Cheers! There’s not that much sugar and everything in it is the real deal (milk, eggs etc) so you can’t go too far wrong.

    • thehungrymum January 27, 2014 at 8:10 am #

      Healthy & easy & yum! The holy trinity of cooking πŸ™‚

  21. Butter, Basil and Breadcrumbs January 14, 2014 at 5:06 pm #

    What a lovely blog you have! I love this recipe… you know, it was sub zero temperatures on my side of the world last week, and they are going down again this week… but that isn’t going to stop me from trying these. They sound so delicious, and a perfect evening snack! I love the thought of the cinnamon, I never would have thought to add it to a frozen fruit pop, but I think that is totally genius!! Brilliant!! I can’t wait to try them!!

    • thehungrymum January 16, 2014 at 1:19 am #

      awwww, thanks! Can’t fathom sub zero temps at the moment – we were swimming this morning but are inside now as the sun is too too TOO hot 😦 Cheers for commenting, hope you stay warm x

  22. gourmetgetaway January 14, 2014 at 11:28 pm #

    These look delicious! I love berries in icy treats! I have been using leftover smoothies in the icy pole moulds too, the kids love it! Banana smoothie icy pole πŸ˜‰

    • thehungrymum January 16, 2014 at 1:18 am #

      How fab are icy pole moulds?! I made a new creation the other day that I need to blog and am ready to try another! Banana smoothie as an ice block would be awesome!

  23. Karen January 15, 2014 at 6:32 pm #

    I’ll be thinking about these pops as I dream of snow melting and warm weather. πŸ™‚

    • thehungrymum January 16, 2014 at 12:55 am #

      Snow?! You’re making me jealous! Too much sun & heat in Sydney this week – my poor garden is suffering 😦

      • Karen January 16, 2014 at 1:15 am #

        Wish I could send you some of our cold weather to cool you down. I’ve been hearing how bad the heat has been…hopefully it will subside soon.

  24. LFFL January 16, 2014 at 1:43 am #

    Love the pretty shade of pink.

  25. Ashley January 16, 2014 at 11:56 am #

    It’s been really cold here by us so you have me craving some warmer weather with these pops! I love anything with berries – now if only they would come back in season here!!

    • thehungrymum January 18, 2014 at 6:38 am #

      Oooh, I’d love some cold~ Is too hot here! 5.30pm and I’ve just come in from the pool so I wouldn’t get sunburned πŸ™‚ I always use frozen berries – I keep a bag in freezer at all times πŸ™‚

  26. stextc January 25, 2014 at 2:08 am #

    Great recipe! Perfect for a hot summer day.

    • thehungrymum January 25, 2014 at 5:41 am #

      Thanks! Can’t beat an ice block when the heat is on πŸ™‚

  27. Sophie33 February 9, 2014 at 10:01 am #

    I made them thawed fresh berries & loved them soo! So good! x

    • thehungrymum February 9, 2014 at 11:56 pm #
