Blueberry and Yogurt Popsicles
It’s been hot around here lately and my kids have been wanting frozen treats so I decided to make some healthier ones for them. I had them pick out what flavor yogurt they wanted – my daughter chose vanilla and my son chose lemon. I made a quick blueberry sauce then strained it so it was just liquid then swirled it together with the different yogurts. I put them in popsicle molds and popped them in the freezer for 24 hours. They were super quick, easy, and much healthier than store bought popsicles. My kids LOVED them and they disappeared quickly. I’ll be making these again soon.
Pour the yogurt into a bowl – if you are using different flavored yogurts then put them each into their own bowls.
Heat the water, sugar, blueberries, and lemon zest in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir the berries often, mashing them, for 5-7 minutes. Remove from the heat and let it cool for a few minutes before pouring through a strainer. Let the blueberry sauce cool completely.
Pour a bit of the blueberry sauce, to taste, into the bowl(s) of yogurt(s). Gently stir just a little bit to swirl blueberry sauce with yogurt – don’t mix thoroughly. Pour into each popsicle mold.
Place into the freezer for 24 hours. Enjoy.
