  • 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.

Expert Tips

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