Ingredients

3-4 oz ripe blackberries. fresh or frozen, thawed
1 to 1.5 C vanilla ice cream, slightly softened
1 C root beer

Preparation

Step 1
In a medium-sized bowl, mash the blackberries with a fork until smushed but chunky. Add the ice cream and gently mash to combine, leaving some white streaks here and there.

Step 2
Use a small spoon or fork to distribute the blackberry ice cream mixture into popsicle molds (I got 6 pops out of the mixture), leaving about an inch or two of space at the top of the mold.

Step 3
Pour the root beer into the molds to top them off, pushing the ice cream down with a fork to evenly distribute, if necessary.

Step 4
Place popsicle sticks in the molds and freeze the popsicles for a few hours, until firm.

Notes
If you need to, run the molds under a bit of hot water to loosen the popsicles before enjoying!
