Berries and Buttermilk Smoothie Ice Cream Pops

From On A Stick by Matt Armendariz

Sweet, simple, and with a tang of buttermilk, these smooth ice cream pops are fun to make. Feel free to use any variety of frozen fruit that you have on hand.


– 4 Pop sticks

– 1 ¼ lb frozen berries, like strawberry and blueberry, or fruit, like peach and mango.

– 1 Small banana

– 1 Cup low-fat buttermilk

– 1 Cup fat-free vanilla yogurt

– 2 tbsp honey


1. Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Pour mixture into ice-pop molds, cover with plastic wrap, and freeze 30 to 45 minutes, or until mixture begins to firm but is still soft.

2. Uncover molds and insert 1 stick into each semi-frozen pop. Return to freezer at least another 2 hours, or until completely frozen.

3. Remove ice pops from molds and serve.
