Okay, can we just talk about this BEAUTIFUL weather? Blue skies, nothing but sun and 75 degrees out..you know what that means. That’s right. Cook out season is upon us! Yesterday, friends gathered for a nice cookout dinner: potluck style. I was in charge of desserts and as I was thinking of what I could easily whip up, the question “what speaks summer?” popped into my head. The answer? Popsicles. I don’t know about you, but I have fond childhood memories of popsicles. I decided on blueberry greek yogurt popsicles. This recipe is easy, cost effective and of course; delicious. These popsicles are protein packed, gluten free which makes for a great guilt-free snack.
On a bad note: I couldn’t upload the tutorial pictures due to my computer. So…use your imagination.
-2 table spoons of honey
-2 cups of blueberries
-2 cups of any flavor of greek yogurt
1. Blend blueberries throughly on high speed until it’s at a smoothie like consistency
2. Pour mixture into a large bowl and mix in the honey and yogurt, but make sure you don’t fully mix in these ingredients. You’re going to want patches of blue/purple and white.
3. Pour mixture into popsicle molds evenly and distribute popsicle sticks.
4. Freeze for 6 hours or overnight
I LOVE THESE POPSICLES. The end product was a great, creamy and tasty mixture that everyone loved and wanted more of! The one modification I would make for next time is to add more honey which would make it sweeter. I will definitely be making these again with different fruits and flavors!
