Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp water
  • 1 cup Blueberries fresh or frozen
  • 1 cup greek yoghurt full fat

  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds unsoaked

Instructions

  • Add the blueberries to a saucepan and on a medium heat, with 1 tbsp of water and let them cook down for about 10 minutes, string frequently and using a wooden spoon to mash them slightly.
  • Remove from heat - add 2tbsp of maple syrup and chia seeds to this blueberry mixture, stir well and leave to cool
  • Mix the yoghurt, 1 tbsp maple, almond or soy milk, and vanilla together in a bowl.
  • Add the yoghurt mixture and cooked berry compote to the popsicle moulds, alternating to create layers. I used a toothpick to stir slightly for a marbled effect.

  • To remove the popsicles from the mould, run them under warm water for 30 seconds and tug the stick to remove gently
