Popsicles are the PERFECT summer treat for me. I personally am not a huge baker, as you may have noticed from the distinct lack of baking recipes on my blog. I love treats, don’t get me wrong, but I just find everything so expensive here in Canada and I would much rather just mix a dab of honey with almond butter and cocoa powder and eat that with a spoon than actually put in the effort to turn on an oven. Especially on a hot summer day!
These popsicles came to me because a flavor I am constantly craving is lemon blueberry loaf. I don’t know why…but it has left an imprint on me! I think I had it once, and the thought of it has never left me. I should probably at least attempt muffins sometime soon. Fat Burning Chef has a lemon loaf I could add blueberries to as well, hmmm.
Back to popsicles though.
Easy to make, pretty healthy as far as treats go, and homemade popsicles are pretty much always better than store bought anyways. It’s basically a home run.
In case you want to know where I got my molds…I don’t know. I can’t remember!!! I went looking in a bunch of local shops recently and I couldn’t find any there, either. I found a few cool ones on amazon though! So check that out if you are in need.
Lemon Blueberry Popsicles
1 cup frozen blueberries
4 ice cubes
4 tbsp. coconut milk
3 tbsp. lemon juice
2 tbsp. honey
1. Blend all ingredients together in a blender. If it is too thick to blend or there is not enough to fill the cups completely, you can use a bit of cold water to level it out.
2. Pour or scoop blended mixture into popsicles and freeze until fully frozen, minimum 2 hours.
3. To remove from popsicle molds, run under hot water until they loosen up.
There you have it! It’s easy and they are really delicious. Sweet and tart and cooling on a hot day. Don’t be fooled though…they are really good on a cold day, too!
