Yay! More fish pops!

This one is a simple one.  It’s a 1:1 ratio of whatever fruit you have, in my case a frozen blueberry, blackberry, marionberry mix, blended with plain yogurt.  And then whatever sugar you feel is necessary to suit your taste.  You may strain out the seeds.  Or you may not.  It is your choice.  I actually like chewing on the seeds, so I tend to leave them in.  I do understand that many people find seeds very annoying, though.

I used three cups of berries, three cups of yogurt, and about a quarter cup of sugar.  It made 12 fish pops and another 5 dentist cup (the tiny paper cups you would get from your dentist when they want you to go rinse out your mouth) pops.

Curious how to use paper cups as a mold without covering the top?  Just freeze for an hour first before shoving a stick in.  And then you can just peel the paper cup away when you’re ready to eat.

Still playing with my fish pop molds.  I ended up making a nice mango-lime fish pop.  Or a diver pop in this case.

I guess I also ate his skull and a good portion of his spine too.

I ended up just making a mango purée with maybe 1.5-2 cups of mango, a tablespoon of sugar (the mangoes were fairly sweet already), the juice of a lime (probably about 2 tablespoons), and a 0.25 cup of water.  What I should have done, and I didn’t think of this until after the fact, was to make a lime infused simple syrup and purée the mangoes in that.  And then also add in the zest of that lime.  Oh well, next time.

Just the mango purée lime pops were pretty good.  I will say that if you just purée and don’t strain, you’re going to get mango fibers throughout the pop.  I don’t have a problem with this but I imagine some people would, as they do sometimes look like small segments of hair.  Which would be gross if they really were hairs, but they aren’t as mangoes are just a very fibrous fruit.
