Jamun & Chia Frozen Yogurt Popsicles

I wait for summers for the availability of Indian summer fruits. They are so versatile and can be used in so many forms. My favourite form being freezing them for our post-meal desserts. Jamun or Indian java plum is one such delightful summer fruit that i love to work with during summers.

A delightful summer treat made with jamuns (java plum), honey, Greek yogurt and fresh mint and chia seeds. It’s tangy, sweet, healthy and works best to satiate the sweet tooth cravings. It would make up to be a great healthy treat for kids too. I like to create a jam like consistency with jamuns and then mix in yogurt to freeze them. Cooking the fruit releases its juices making it naturally sweeter and more flavourful. Also, for this recipe I have used honey but feel free to use any sweetener of choice as per the dietary restrictions and preferences.
