(NC)—Parents are always looking for delicious, quality recipes that they feel good about serving to their families. So finding ones that will not only win over the kids, but are easy to make with a few common ingredients makes it even better. Canadian Living's test kitchen has whipped up this sure to be summer fun staple:

Berry Swirl Ice Pops

1 can (295 mL) Minute Maid Berry Punch frozen concentrate (unthawed)

1 cup frozen mixed berries (unthawed)

1/2 cup water

2 cups vanilla yogurt

In blender, purée together berry punch concentrate, mixed berries and water until smooth. Prepare each ice-pop mould by spooning in berry mixture, followed by yogurt. Alternate until mould has 3 layers of berry mixture and 2 layers of yogurt. Using tip of knife or skewer, make 1 or 2 swirls. Insert stick into centre. Freeze until solid.

Don't have ice-pop moulds? No worries. Just use 5-oz (148 mL) disposable paper cups and wooden ice-pop sticks to make these tasty summertime treats. The recipe will fill eight of these cups, but the yield will change depending on the size and shape of the mould you choose. Additional tips and summer recipes are available online at www.minutemaid.ca.
