nectarine and lavender honey yogurt pops


There is a rumor floating around the internet that summer is over.  People are posting photos of the leaves turning where they live and Halloween costumes and candy are already in the stores.

At first I thought I was in denial.  Sure…school has started and Sam Adams Summer Ale has given way to Oktoberfest, but those of us who live in the mid-Atlantic states know that thanks to global warming the temperatures can stay in the 80’s well into October.

So while you people are throwing in the towel and unpacking your favorite sweaters, I will still be wearing flip flops and living out every remaining day of summer like it’s Shark Week.

nectarine and lavender honey yogurt pops

*This honey tastes and smells wonderful and you can purchase it here.  Plain honey works, too.

1 1/2 cups non-fat vanilla Greek yogurt

3 nectarines-peeled, pitted, and cut into chunks

4 Tbsp honey, separated (plus more to taste)

Place the nectarines in a food processor and pulse until blended into a chunky puree.  Add 2 Tbsp honey and pulse a couple of times until combined.  In a medium bowl, combine yogurt with remaining 2 Tbsp honey.  Taste the yogurt mixture and add more honey to taste.  At this point, you may combine the nectarine puree with the yogurt and place in molds or layer it, alternating yogurt and puree.  Make sure to leave at least 1/2 inch at the top of the pops because they will expand as they freeze.  Place molds in freezer and freeze until hardened.

  1. These look so amazing, can’t wait for my honey!

  2. Agreed. I mean, I’m pretty sure fall doesn’t start until September 21st, right? I’ll take one of those pops over a redonkulous halloween costume ANY day…

  3. Summer is over (in my world) when the mosquitoes aren’t biting anymore. Until then, frozen pops and flip flops rule!
