Here's a healthy treat that kids are sure to love, especially on a hot summer day. A simple fresh blueberry sauce is mixed with vanilla yogurt and then poured into popsicle molds and frozen.
The result? Pure, cool deliciousness!
Don't have a mold? That's okay, small paper cups will work just fine. Note that the prep and total time shown allows about an hour for cooling the berry sauce, then 4 more hours for freezing the popsicles thoroughly.
Prep time: 300 min | Total time: 15 min | 6 Servings
1 ¾ cup
fresh organic blueberries
fresh lemon juice
1 ½ cup
nonfat vanilla yogurt

Combine the blueberries, sugar and lemon juice in a small saucepan over high heat and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low and cook, stirring frequently, until the mixture thickens, about 10 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and cool completely.
Place the yogurt in a bowl and add the cooled blueberry sauce, whisking to blend. Pour the mixture into 6 popsicle molds, insert sticks, and freeze until set, about 4 hours or according to manufacturer's directions.
