It sure is hot around these parts. We had such a mild beginning to our summer and then, BAM! 100+ degrees for days at a time. The kind of heat that makes you want to sit around in your pj’s in your cool house and do nothing but read books and eat popsicles all day. I am okay with that, are you?
These two little people seem to be as well.
They think that these berry popsicles are pretty delicious. I would bet that other people would too. Would you like to know how we made them? Of course, I will share with you.
** This recipe is going to depend on what you are going to be using to freeze your pops. This is more method than recipe. **
I sliced some strawberries and covered them in a little sugar and a splash of lemon juice. I used my handy-dandy immersion blender to make it nice and smooth. I put some blueberries in a saucepan with a little bit of water and a little sugar and boiled it for about 5 minutes. I also blitzed the blueberries with my immersion blender. I put both purees through a strainer.
I added a bit of each puree to a bowl of vanilla yogurt.
I mixed it around just enough to get these gorgeous swirls. I put the rest of the purees in the fridge for pancakes.
I put the sticks into the molds and put them into the freezer overnight. You can make your own molds using lots of different things if you do not have star molds laying around. Ice cube trays, paper cups, craft sticks, plastic spoons. I know that you can come up with something.
Unmold and enjoy a delicious and healthy popsicle on a hot summer day. I can think of about a million other delicious flavors to make with these molds. I can’t wait!
