Blueberry Popsicles

A friend of mine gave us some popsicle molds a few months ago, which was so cool because I’ve been meaning to make popsicles forever!ย  Maya goes cuckoo for popsicles, and I love the idea of making some with her ๐Ÿ™‚ย  Plus, you can totally control what you put into them, and they are so easy!ย  Really, any fruit would work.Blog Blueberry Greek Yogurt Popsicles-1 Blog Blueberry Greek Yogurt Popsicles-2Ingredients (Made 6)

  • 1 carton of Yogurt (any kind-I used Greek Vanilla, but you could also use Almond or Coconut Milk Yogurt if you need to go Dairy/Soy Free/)
  • 1 Cup unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk (or whatever milk you want :))
  • 1 Cup Frozen Blueberries

Directions

  • Pay very close attention, because this can get tricky… ๐Ÿ˜‰
  • Toss everything into a blender, pour into popsicle molds, then freeze.
  • Any leftovers can be enjoyed as a smoothie!
