Yogurt Ice Pops with Blackberries

These ice pops are so good! And they don’t take much effort to make. My only problem with these is that, even though I sliced my blackberries in half, they still took up too much space in the molds. My ice pops came out very uneven. I should have waited a few minutes after pouring in the yogurt mixture, to see where it would settle in. But- no worries! These were so good!
