It's mid august - the heat is high and if you are like me nothing makes the days pass a little faster than a sweet dessert - sometimes a slice of watermelon just doesn't cut it.
What are you in the mood for?? Well, MarthaStewart.com has a fun quiz that will tell you which dessert fits you best, check it out.
I took it and I was a Tie-Dye Pop, yumm - The recipe is below!
Plum or Raspberry Tie-Dye Pops
Makes 1 dozen 1/2-cup pops
(Blending yogurt with lemon juice results in an airy mixture that is more delicious when frozen. If fruit is not ripe, add 1/2 cup orange juice to the puree.)
You will Need:
1 pound black or red plums, pits removed, cut into pieces, or 3 pints raspberries
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
32 ounces low-fat or nonfat vanilla yogurt
1. Place plums or 2 1/2 pints raspberries in blender or food processor. Pulse briefly, then puree until nearly liquid, about 1 minute.
For plum pops: pass puree through large-mesh sieve to remove skin.
For raspberry pops: Pass puree through a very fine sieve to remove seeds; you should end up with 1/2 cup. Add 1 tablespoon lemon juice.
2. Blend yogurt with remaining tablespoon lemon juice in a blender until smooth.
3. Layer each 1/3-cup pop mold with yogurt and puree, adding rest of raspberries along the way. Swirl mixtures together with knife.
Take the quiz and see what you are!
