Sweet Beet Dreamsicles
These Sweet Beet Dreamsicles are full of veggies (beets), fruits (pear and pomegranates) and protein (plain Greek yogurt.) Healthy enough to be called a meal anytime of day!
Course: Dessert, Snacks
Servings: 9 mini popsicles
- 1 4 oz jar of Beets, Pear and Pomegranate puree
- 2 tbsp full-fat plain Greek yogurt
- 2 tbsp + 1 tsp maple syrup (optional)
In a small bowl, whisk together the purée and 2 tablespoons maple syrup. In another small bowl, whisk together the Greek yogurt and the remaining 1 teaspoon maple syrup.
Evenly divide the Greek yogurt mixture, roughly 1/2 teaspoon, into each popsicle mold. Next, spoon in the puree mixture until you are at the fill line. Take a long stick and swirl the mixture to make a marbled effect. Tap the tray on the counter a couple of times to make sure you don’t have any air bubbles.
Insert the sticks, and place in the freezer for 2-3 hours or overnight.
Recipe NotesNote about the maple syrup – You can leave the maple syrup out of this recipe. To balance the yogurt with some extra sweetness, you can always add more purée. Note about popsicle tray – this recipe fills the zoku mini mold perfectly and makes around 5.4-ounces or just over half a cup. If you have a larger popsicle mold, feel free to double or even triple this recipe. Storage – 1 month in freezer
