Tart Blueberry Lemon Popsicles with Yogurt
These tart blueberry lemon popsicles are undeniably refreshing and might bring a pucker to your lips! If you have more of a sweet tooth, they are easy to sweeten up and achieve the flavor you desire.
POPSICLE SEASON! Woohooo! I have a few really fun popsicle recipes coming up for you guys and the first is this tart little number.
If you’re not a fan of tart things – don’t stop reading. All it takes is a bit more sugar to achieve sweet perfection if that’s more your style.
So, tell me. What have you all been up to this summer? I’m just loving having E home – we’ve been exploring new parks already and I have so many more fun things planned for the summer months. Ben made it through graduation (it went great!) and he’s still working like a madman. At graduation, the teachers were all asking me if we had trips, etc. planned for the summer or if Ben was excited for his time off. Well, he doesn’t get the summer off like teachers do. He keeps on trucking right through June, July and August and then we blink and September is here.
However, we do get to see him a bit more since there are fewer evening events (concerts, games, meetings…). This translates to him standing behind the grill while I enjoy a popsicle. Ha! Not quite, but we do very much enjoy that extra time with him during the summer. And I hope this doesn’t come off as complaining. I’m very grateful that he has a great job and that he’s able to impact hundreds of young lives – even if it means I have to sacrifice a little of my time with him.
On the subject of popsicles, these couldn’t be easier to make. Throw blueberries into the blender with some lemon zest and juice and yogurt for a little added protein and creaminess. Sweeten with your choice of sweetener – I used Stevia for these but sugar is my go-to and these would also be phenomenal with honey. Pour into the molds, freeze and enjoy! You’re done and ready to sit down, put your feet up, and watch your husband grill. Or something like that.
Tart Blueberry Lemon Popsicles
These tart blueberry lemon popsicles are undeniably refreshing and might bring a pucker to your lips! If you have a sweet tooth, they are easy to sweeten.
- 2 cups frozen or fresh blueberries
- 1 teaspoon lemon zest
- juice of one lemon
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
- 4 teaspoons stevia or sugar (this yields a very tart ice pop – feel free to add more to taste)
- In a blender or a food processor, blend all ingredients until smooth.
- Taste mixture and add more sugar as desired.
- Pour into popsicle molds and freeze until solid – at least 4 hours.
- When ready to eat, remove from popsicle molds and enjoy immediately!
Verdict: Loved these tart blueberry lemon popsicles.
Husband’s take: Too tart for him – next time I’ll add a touch more sugar.
Changes I would make: None are necessary but if I haven’t mentioned it yet, they are tart. Make sure you taste the mixture and add sugar if you want before you freeze them. It’s easier to add sugar before they are frozen. Of course the tartness also depends on how sweet your berries are as well as how much juice you extract from your lemon. It’s always smart to taste as you go!
Difficulty: Oh so easy.
Craving more popsicles? I have you covered, duh! Try Andes Mint Pudding Pops, Funfetti Pudding Pops, Blood Orange and Chocolate Greek Yogurt Pops, Apple Pie Popsicles from the Cookie Rookie, Whole Fruit Popsicles from The View From Great Island, or Peach Sangria Popsicles from Just a Taste.
PS: I have this popsicle mold. Works great!
