There is almost nothing better than a home made popsicle on a hot summers day. With the funky Zoku popsicle molds and Fany Gerson's Paletas book on hand, we thought it was time to whip up a sweet treat!
Paletas de Yogurt con Moras
Rinse the lemon, then peel it. Combine the water and sugar in a small saucepan. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring, until the mixture comes to a boil and the sugar has dissolved. Add the lemon peel, lower the heat, and simmer for 5 minutes. Let cool to room temperature. Strain the syrup through a fine-mesh sieve, then refrigerate until chilled.
Put the yogurt and honey in a blender, add the chilled syrup, and blend to combine. Pour a bit of the yogurt mixture into each of the molds, to a height of about ¾ inch. Freeze until the mixture begins to set, about 40 minutes.
Divide the berries among the molds, then pour in the remaining yogurt mixture, dividing it evenly among the molds. Freeze for 8 hours and enjoy!
