YES! Another item off the summer to-do list; make blueberry yogurt popsicles with my daughter. She came up with the flavors of this one on her own. She was eyeing a blueberry lemon cookie and said that would make a great popsicle. I totally agreed with her so threw it together and came up with a delicious sweet treat. My little one is always coming up with a “new recipe”. She wants to get in on the action. It is so adorable. Ok, I’m hardly objective but it really is cute.
Recently after a lunch out, where she had her favorite, pimento cheese sandwich. She started making up a sandwich recipe on the way home. Half of the time I forget about her “recipe” before I’ve written it down but this time I got smart. I handed her my phone and had her record her recipe. She went through step by step about explaining to put one piece of bread on the plate. Then spread on the pimento cheese, then ham then the other piece of bread. While this recipe is exactly light, I adore listening to her little voice on my phone. She thought she was the “Mac Daddy” and listened to her recipe over and over again.
Her idea for the flavors of blueberry and lemon were perfect. She then had to decide if we would layer them or swirl them. So we hopped over to Pinterest so I could show her picture of popsicles. She picked the swirl. I was secretly happy about that one. It would be so much easier than freezing each layer separately. That seemed like a lot of work and time. This are huge blueberry yogurt popsicles. If you want to make smaller ones, go for it. You can just make more of them. Be sure to wear an apron while you are making these. Luckily I was smart enough to put aprons on both of us. Blueberries can stain and we did make a bit of a mess. It was fun though and what is a little mess to clean up compared to the memories we made together.
Even her friends enjoyed these blueberry yogurt popsicles. The best part for me is that they are healthy. My little one thinks of these as a sweet treat but I know they are just fresh fruit and yogurt. One little tip, these can drip after a while so we always stick the popsicle stick through a paper plate. That way the plate catches the drippings and you don’t have a child covered in blueberry drippings. You won’t need to break out the stain remover. So make some fun summer memories with your kids and whip up these Blueberry Yogurt Popsicles with Lemon. They will munch on these and you know they are getting a serving of fruit.
