Blackberry Swirl Frozen Yogurt Popsicle

What you will need:
1⅔ cups plain whole-milk yogurt
¼ cup + 6 tbsp granulated sugar (approximately), divided
2 cups blackberries
1 tbsp lime juice (from 1 small lime)

Steps to yummy goodness:
1. Combine yogurt and ¼ cup sugar in a blender and blend for about 30 seconds.
2. Taste it for sweetness, adding more to your liking.
3.Transfer mixture to a bowl – if you find it slightly grainy, let it chill in refrigerator for 1 hour until sugar is totally dissolved.

4. Rinse the blender, then add the blackberries, lime juice and 4 tablespoons of the sugar. Blend until pureed, taste, and add up to 2 tablespoons more sugar if needed.

5.Force the berry puree through a fine-mesh sieve into a second bowl, pressing on the solids to extract as much as possible.

6.Alternating spoonfuls of the yogurt mixture and blackberry puree, fill the popsicle molds, leaving about ½ inch of head space to allow the pops to expand as they freeze.

7.Use a skewer or a paring knife to dip down into each pop and swirl a bit. Insert sticks and transfer to freezer; freeze 4 hours or more before serving.
