Paletas!

 Mmmm, blackberries are in season - and I have the perfect use for them!
My long awaited Paletas cookbook arrived last month, and I found the perfect pop to make.
Boil 1 lemon peel, 1/2 c water and 1/2 c sugar until all sugar is dissolved.  Cool and strain.  Blend cooled syrup with 1 1/2 c plain Greek yogurt and 2 T honey or agave nectar (I prefer the agave).  Fill molds half way and freeze for 30 minutes.  Slice berries in half and drop into molds, using a stick to push them into the yogurt mixture.  Top with remaining mixture and freeze overnight. 

Dreamy.

Yum! I can be there late this afternoon ... will you save me one? ;)
Have you ever been to Las Paletas (on 12th ave, i think - near Belmont)? They have some really unique flavors.

Jen - you bet, we love Las Paletas! My favorite's are avocado and pistachio - and Whole Foods carries them too!

You are welcome to drop in any time and share a paleta with us :)

Those look amazing! we're not quite to blackberry season yet, but soon. I'll have to tuck this recipe away.

I just might! I wonder if the Georgia Whole Foods carries las paletas...
