BLUEBERRY POPSICLES RECIPE

It’s heating up pretty much everywhere right now, and as one of the many without central air conditioning in their home, I’m looking for any way to cool down. Luckily, this method not only involves delicious frozen sweets, but it pretty much the easiest thing to make, ever. Just empty all the ingredients into a blender, run it for a few seconds, pour the mixture into popsicles molds, and let your freezer do all the work. It’s absolutely perfect for the heat-induced apathy of the summer months. You can also make these a little more ‘adult’ by adding a shot or two of rum, just be careful not to go overboard, as alcohol doesn’t freeze, so if you add too much the popsicles won’t solidify and you’ll be left with boozy blueberry n’ cream slushies. Not that that’s necessarily a bad thing… – eva

Blueberry Popsicles
By Eva Kosmas Flores of Adventures in Cooking
Makes about 10 popsicles

Ingredients:
• 3 cups blueberries
• 2 cups milk
• 1/3 cup granulated sugar
• 2 tablespoons honey
• 1 teaspoons vanilla extract
• 2 tablespoons roughly chopped fresh basil leaves
• popsicle mold
• popsicle sticks

Empty all the ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth. Evenly distribute the filling between the popsicle molds. Insert the popsicle sticks into the center of the mold, using the cap of the mould to secure the sticks in place. Place the popsicle mould in the freezer and allow to freeze overnight.

To remove a popsicle from the mold, dip the mould in hot water up until the rim of the mold, but not any higher. Hold it there for 5 seconds, then try to pull the popsicle out. If it doesn’t come out, repeat the process again until it slides out. Enjoy!

    Hi Bri Emery 🙂

    Blueberry popsicles IS healthy indeed. That blue-ish little fruit is amazing and have many benefits, I even wrote about blueberry in http://ahliherbal.com/jurnal/makanan-sehat-penakluk-asam-urat-151.html

    Try to remove 1/3 cup granulated sugar to NO SUGAR at all to make it even healthier, what’s your thought 🙂

    I love making fruit popsicles, but for some reason it never occurred to me before to run them through a blender before freezing them! I also like adding condensed milk to the mix for an extra kick of sweetness 🙂 -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey’s
