Blackberry, Rosemary, and Yogurt Popsicles

- Amanda

Kids like to witness transformation, which is why they enjoy baking so much. Blobs of dough turn into round cookies. And batters rise to lofty cakes. So when I'm cooking with my kids, I try to focus on recipes that will completely change from start to finish.

But I was not about to turn on the oven last weekend; it was the freezer's turn in the spotlight. Mission: popsicles. First a layer of blackberry and blueberry puree, sweetened with rosemary syrup (leftover from piccantedolce's Boozy Watermelon Rosemary Lemonade). After a few hours in the freezer, we topped the fruit with a layer of yogurt sweetened with vanilla sugar. A few hours more and we had torpedo-shaped treats. And the three of us sat on the floor of the magical kitchen, eating our popsicles.

Thiis sounds like a wonderful combinatiion, as there are so many antioxidants and I have lots of rosemary growing and love black and blueberries along with Greek yogurt. Thank you for this recipe! I look forward to preparing it!

The twins actually liked the rosemary? Hard to believe, but then again, they are your children!

I love the idea of rosemary as a flavor for a dessert but the yogurt part is definitely the reason why I will be trying this recipe out! I love yogurt!
