Simple Blueberry Popsicles

With our {essential} popsicle stash running on low, Gracen and I decided we’d whip up a new batch this afternoon.  I really had no recipe or flavour in mind, but as we rummaged through our fridge and freezer, Grae caught sight of frozen blueberries (her favourite!) and our decision was quickly made.

IMG 8263In addition to the blueberries, we gathered up some plain organic whole milk yogurt (with just a tiny touch of honey added), our new Ring Pop-esque popsicle moulds, and our food processor.

IMG 8264Gracen started us out by putting the blueberries into the food processor (at least the ones that were lucky enough to not be eaten).

IMG 8266Then she added our yogurt and honey…

Now, if you don’t enjoy a bit of texture in your popsicles {and you have the patience}, you could strain the mixture at this point, but since we don’t mind the grit and I feel like they must be more nutritious with the skin bits left in, we left it as is.

IMG 8269With some help, Grae scooped a little bit of the mixture into each mould…

Simple Blueberry Popsicles

  • 2 parts frozen blueberries
  • 1 part plain yogurt
  • 1 tiny drizzle of honey (if desired)

Blend everything well in a food processor or blender. Scoop into popsicle moulds and freeze for at least a few hours.

Enjoy!

Oh, and be forewarned… There’s sure to be a similar fig popsicle recipe happening soon. We’ve got a tree bursting at the seams with fresh figs and I’m going to have to start getting creative.  Surely figs must make good popsicles, right?
