When summer time is in full effect we like to make our own popsicles at home. Today instead of reaching for plain juice we mixed it up with these Blueberry Smoothie Popsicles.
Popsicle molds are easy to find and I got mine at the dollar store. If you do not have them you can always use an ice cube tray and put toothpicks in them part way through freezing.
This is a great way to use overripe and / or frozen fruit. When my bananas are turning brown I usually peel them, break them in to small chunks, and put them in a freezer bag in the freezer. I do the same thing with other fruits as well.
You can easily swap out the fruit and yogurt for different flavor. And can also include pieces of whole fruit when you put them in the molds. If you don’t want to wait for them to freeze just use this simple recipe for a smoothie.
Either way this refreshing treat is sure to cool you off.
1 Frozen Banana (if not frozen add a few cubes of ice)
1 cup Blueberries and Raspberries
1 cup milk of choice
1 cup Vanilla Yogurt
Put all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Pour into popsicle molds. Place in freezer until frozen. Enjoy!
