Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 Cup (about 1 medium) sweet potato, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 3 Cups fresh blackberries, divided
  • 2 Cups orange juice
  • 2 Tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 Tablespoons light agave nectar
  • 2 Teaspoons McCormick® All Natural Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 3/4 Teaspoons sea salt from McCormick® Sea Salt Grinder
  • 1/2 Teaspoon McCormick® Ground Cinnamon

Directions

Place sweet potatoes in a medium saucepan with enough water to cover.

Cook in simmering water about 15 minutes or until tender.

Drain well; allow to cool 5 minutes.

Place sweet potatoes, 2 cups of the blackberries and remaining ingredients into blender container.

Cover.

Puree until smooth, about 3 minutes. (If desired, strain mixture with sieve to remove seeds.)

Divide mixture between 14 popsicle molds or small paper cups, filling about 2/3 of the way full.

Add a few fresh blackberries to each mold gently pressing into sweet potato mixture.
