Making the popsicles:  Add yogurt, 1 cup of the blackberries, honey and basil, if you are using it, to a blender.  Blend until everything has turned purple and has a smooth texture.

Filling the popsicle molds:  Plop a whole blackberry into a popsicle mold.  Pour a bit of the yogurt mixture into the mold.  Plop another blackberry and more of the mixture.  Repeat until mold is three-fourths full.  Repeat with remaining popsicle molds.

Freeze until popsicles are frozen through, about 1 hour.
