Are your kids screaming for something sweet, but there’s no ice cream truck in sight?

Don’t panic – we’ve got you covered.

This week’s kid-friendly recipe is the blackberry freezecake pop — so named because the taste reminds me of cheesecake.

These lollipops are so easy to make, look amazing and taste oh so delicious.

You can make them with any berry, but I just love the color of the blackberries.

The dimensions will depend on how many you need to make, but below is a rough guideline.

Ingredients:

  • Large pack of blackberries (or any other berry)
  • 150 g Greek yogurt
  • 25 g caster sugar
  • 2 tablespoons honey (not for babies under one year old)
  • 3 digestive biscuits (crushed)

Method:

  1. Place the berries and sugar in a saucepan with 1 tbsp water. Heat gently, turn up the heat and bring to a boil, stirring and mashing so that the berries release their juice (add more water if needed). Simmer for a few minutes and then let it cool completely.
  2. In a bowl, whisk together yogurt and honey.
  3. Fill popsicle molds with a spoonful of cooled berries, followed by a layer of yogurt mixture, then another layer of cooled berries. Sprinkle with crushed digestive biscuits and a tablespoon of water to stiffen the biscuit (press down to wrap).
  4. Push the lollipop sticks in and freeze them until firm – about four hours.
