Expert Tips

You can replace camu camu with red prickly pears. Mix with water, lemon juice and sugar. Strain to remove the seeds.

Camu camu is a tropical berry rich in vitamin C, and is found in the Amazon forests of Peru and Brazil. It’s used in juices, ice creams, popsicles, sauces and desserts. This fruit has a lovely red color and a delicious flavor.

Use different yogurt flavors to delight your family.

Directions

  • 1 Rinse the camu camu and place in a container. Add boiling water and let sit for 20 minutes until it cools.
  • 2 Crush the berries by hand to squeeze out as much pulp as possible and remove the seeds. Mix it in a blender with lemon juice and sugar to taste. Store in the fridge.
  • 3 Prepare 8 popsicle molds and sticks.
  • 4 Pour a bit of the camu camu juice in each mold and place in the fridge. When firm, add the same amount of yogurt and cool again. Before it hardens completely, insert a popsicle stick in the center.
  • 5 Repeat to form layers with the juice and the yogurt. Leave in the freezer overnight or for a couple of days—although I doubt they’ll last that long, they’re that delicious!
  • 6 To unmold, place the molds in warm water and squeeze to loosen the pops. Serve immediately.
