Homemade Popsicles 

Summer wouldn’t be summer without refreshing frozen fruit popsicles! Nearly every fruit can be simmered down with a pinch of sugar and a drizzle of lemon into a luscious compote, making it perfect for popsicles. Today I am making blueberry compote for my first popsicles of the season. 

Blueberry Popsicle

What better way to kick off the 4th of July weekend than with the luscious rich color that blueberries bring to this popsicle! All my family will be spending the weekend with me and I am sure the little ones will love these refreshing popsicles in the heat of the day. Shhhh. Don’t tell them how healthy they are for them! I even wrapped each one individually to make them more special. 

Homemade Popsicles

Thick Rich Greek Yogurt Popsicles

While I often make my own yogurt, I found that a thick rich Greek yogurt that is real yogurt (you know what I’m talking about, like real!), would be the perfect yogurt for my popsicles. Slightly sweet, lusciously thick, vanilla yogurt. 

Ingredients and Equipment Needed for Blueberry Yogurt Popsicles

Making Popsicles Is Too Easy!

Once you own a popsicle mold, and trust me, they are ‘cheap’, you will be making frozen yummies all summer long! For this popsicle recipe I simply boiled down some frozen blueberries I had in the freezer, soggy, little blueberries. Fresh plump ones will work too, they just take a little longer to cook down to a compote. A sprinkle of sugar and a drizzle of lemon juice. Simmer till the fruit is soft and mushy (that’s what a compote is). Cool. Then simply layer yogurt, blueberries, yogurt and blueberries till the mold is filled. Put the sticks in and freeze over night. 

Preparing The Popsicle Molds

Cut The Sugar

Since the yogurt already comes with sugar and vanilla and the berries are already sweet, added sugar can be cut from this recipe, or a sweetener of your choice can be substituted. If the blueberries are really sweet, just simmer them in a bit of lemon juice and cut the sugar.

Ingredients

  • Vanilla Greek Yogurt – 15 oz.

  • Blueberries – 1 cup frozen (thawed) or 2 cups fresh

  • Sugar – 1/4 cup

  • Lemon juice – 1 tablespoon

Directions

  • To make a compote, place the blueberries in a saucepan. Add sugar and lemon juice. Simmer until soft and mushy. If the blueberries are fresh, simmer time will take about 20 minutes. If blueberries are frozen and thawed, simmer time is 10 minutes. Cool.
  • In the popsicle molds, spoon about 1 heaping tablespoon of yogurt into the mold. Layer with 1 tablespoon of blueberry compote, then yogurt until each mold is filled. Put the lids on and sticks in, or however your mold comes together to prepare the popsicles.
  • Freeze over night. They can be served directly from the mold, or remove and wrap individually, freeing up the mold for more popsicles.
