Saskatoon season is here, at least in my backyard! Those delicious prairie berries are ready to rock and this year I thought I would give them a try in a very kid friendly recipe. Actually, it’s also very Mom friendly as well, no baking or cooking in the hot weather and three simple, healthy ingredients that are pureed. So that also makes it very diet friendly too, for those of you trying to avoid the sweet treat barrage that The Kitchen Magpie can be sometimes.

I was determined to make them into a very yogurty pop, so if you like the flavor of Greek yogurt, this is the treat for you. I have been making all sorts of homemade rocket pops on the side, but since I am always trying to find a way to get protein into my kids, I thought their treats might be a good way to do it. Based on the ages of my kids, they need anywhere from 24-28 grams of protein per day, and each of these pops packs 3 grams. Considering it’s their “treat”,  getting 1/8th of their daily required protein in it made me pretty happy!

My Saskatoon’s in the backyard are so plump, ripe and utterly delicious, words simply cannot describe, so I will let the picture do the talking for me.

When you pair your home grown or farm picked Saskatoon’s with a nice local honey- we love Coal Lake Honey – it is a simple and refreshing way to eat in season and eat locally!

Ingredients Needed:

1 cup frozen or fresh Saskatoon berries
¾ cup Greek Yogurt
2-3 tbsp honey to taste

Puree the ingredients together and pour into your popsicle molds.

Place in the freezer until they are frozen solid. A little trick to remove them from the molds easily is to run them under hot water for a few moments to loosen them up.popsicle molds filled with Puree ingredients of Saskatoon berries

You can also cut down on the yogurt if you want and replace it with some juice, blueberry/raspberry would be a great combination to match. However this recipe is definitely all about the yogurt taste, they are almost Greek Yogurt Pops instead of Saskatoon Pops, which was my intent. My son absolutely adores them while my daughter is just not a Saskatoon fan, even pureed. I am pretty sure it’s how seedy the berries are, the texture is rougher inside than most berries. I substitute other berries in no problem for the picky pants child.

They are also fat free, use honey instead of sugar and full of amazing antioxidants from those blueberries for the health conscious out there.

Happy picking everyone! The best part of summer is the bounty of fresh vegetables and berries we are being provided with daily. Talk a walk in the River Valley and check out the Saskatoon’s, they are everywhere to pick when ripened.

Love,

The Waits All Year For Her Saskatoon’s Magpie
