    ·        1/2 c. plain yogurt

    ·        10 ice pop molds

     

    In saucepan, heat lemonade concentrate & water over medium heat just until concentrate is thawed. Remove from heat & cool. In a blender, place 3/4 c. of the cooled mixture, 1/2 c. of the raspberries, & 1/4 c. of the yogurt. Blend on medium until smooth. If you don't like the seeds, press this mixture through a small strainer to remove them. Divide mixture among ice pop molds & freeze slightly.

    Distribute remaining raspberries in molds. Combine remaining lemonade mixture & yogurt and spoon evenly into molds. Return to freezer until firm, about 4 hours.
