National Blueberry Popsicle Month | Food With Love

September 7, 2018

I am so excited this Feeding You Friday to share with you a recipe that I am just in love with that is perfectly timed with it being National Blueberry Popsicle Month.  For those that follow me on Instagram know that I have blueberry bushes that I have been steadily harvesting from.  When you have such an abundance of produce you try to find ways to enjoy them and not waste them so I got to making blueberry popsicle because I had them, I LOVE blueberries, it’s hot outside, and who doesn’t love a good popsicle?

This is a simple recipe that I always have a batch in the freezer of some fruit of some sort for those times that I want a sweet treat.  It is not high in sugar and can be modified to use any fruit that your heart desires.  Blueberries are full of antioxidants that help counteract the cellular deterioration that is caused by various environmental factors internally as well as externally that can damage the collagen and elastin in the skin.  No good as these are the building blocks for firm healthy skin.

What You Do

  • Zest the skin on about one lemon and stir into the yogurt mixture.

  • Blend the blueberries using a blender or a small food processor until smooth and blended.  If you are like me and don’t mind fruit chunks then blend it until chunky.

  • Add the maple syrup to the blueberry mixture and taste for your sweetness preference.

  • Swirl in the blueberry maple syrup mixture into  the yogurt and lemon zest mixture.

  • Pour the mixture into the popsicle mold following the mold filling instructions.

  • Freeze for at least 6 hour or overnight before you enjoy!

Yay to the anthocyanins that give these blue jewels of round joy their color!  They are so deserving of any celebration and honoring with their powerful superfood abilities.  Happy Blueberry Popsicle Month 🎉

Much Love,

Nic
