Raspberry Banana Yogurt Freezer Pops

Raspberry-Banana Yogurt Freezer Pops

Yield:  10 Pops

INGREDIENTS

1 cup low-fat vanilla yogurt

1 banana

3 cups fresh or frozen raspberries, blueberries or strawberries (halved)

½ cup honey

PREPARATION

In a blender process 1 cup low-fat vanilla yogurt and 1 banana for 30 seconds or until smooth.  Bring 3 cups of fresh fruit and honey to a boil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat; reduce heat to low, and simmer 5 minutes.  Pour mixture through a fine wire-mesh strainer into a bowl, using the back of the spoon to squeeze out juice and pulp.  Discard skins and seeds.  Cover and chill fruit mixture 30 minutes.  Pour yogurt mixture evenly into 10 – 2 ounce pop molds.  Top with fruit mixture and swirl, if desired.  Top with lid of pop mold and insert craft sticks, leaving 1-1/2 to 2 inches sticking out of pop.  Freeze 6 hours or until sticks are solidly anchored and pops are completely frozen.
