Berry Yogurt Pops

We are reaching the end of blueberry and popsicle season, but these healthy homemade treats were too good and easy to not share the recipe:

1 can (81/4 0z.) pear halves in syrup
1 cup blueberries
2 cups low-fat vanilla yogurt

Drain pears, reserving liquid. Place pears, berries, and 2+ tbsp syrup in food processor or blender. Cover and mix till smooth. (Taste for sweetness. Freezing lessens sweetness, so add more syrup based on taste preference.) Pour into popsicle molds or small paper cups and insert craft sticks. Put in freezer and patiently wait till they are frozen!

The pre-frozen mix tasted so good we decided to have some "berry soup." The soup idea didn't go over so well with the wee ones so we made it a milkshake by adding a straw. Two snacks for the time of one is always appreciated in our house!
