My second foray into the world of frozen desserts: making Greek yoghurt popsicles.
Chocolate and raspberries have always been a good combination… So, when I saw one of the local dairy brands selling products combining raspberry-flavored Greek yoghurt with toppings of chocolate chips and freeze-dried raspberries on the side, I thought this could also work in frozen form 😋
I turned to Pinterest in search of a recipe that appealed to me, and sure enough I found one courtesy of Creme de la Crumb. The recipe is actually for blueberry Greek yoghurt popsicles, but I don’t see why I couldn’t modify it a bit… 😁 The result is a yoghurt popsicle that’s not too yoghurty—it’s creamy, with just enough tang and sweetness, and if you really like the combination of chocolate and raspberries, then you just might call this one «raspberry dream popsicle»* 😉
* The Greek yoghurt product I was talking about above, the one with the side toppings of chocolate chips and freeze-dried raspberries, is actually called bringebærdrøm, which means «raspberry dream» in Norwegian.
Raspberry and chocolate chip Greek yoghurt popsicles
(Adapted from Creme de la Crumb)
Makes 10-12 popsicles
240 ml vanilla or plain Greek yoghurt (I used raspberry flavored, though 😁)
120 ml heavy cream or half-and-half
1 cup raspberries (I used fresh, but frozen ones will also work)
4-5 tbsp (or to taste) honey
2 tbsp chocolate chips
2 tbsp crushed freeze-dried raspberries
- Place all the yoghurt, heavy cream, raspberries (not the freeze-dried ones), and honey in a blender and process at medium speed until combined. Pour the mixture into popsicle molds, filling each just about half-way.
- Mix the chocolate chips with the freeze-dried raspberries, then divide evenly among the popsicle molds.
- Pour the rest of the yoghurt mixture into the popsicle molds, on top of the raspberry-chocolate chip mix. Stir, if desired.
- Insert the popsicle sticks according to your popsicle mold instructions. Freeze for at least 6 hours, or overnight.
- When ready for eating, place the popsicle mold under warm running water to loosen the popsicle out of the mold.
