Apparently, I somehow missed National Blueberry Popsicle Day on September 2nd. Although, reports are a bit conflicted. Some say it’s actually Blueberry Popsicle Month, and since that fits my agenda better, I’m going with that.
I have decided that popsicle molds are the best things! I picked up one at Wal-Mart during summer and had just been doing juices, until a friend (and amazing jeweler) mentioned that she froze the remainder of her smoothie for snacks later.
So, I’ve been freezing fruit smoothies – made purely from frozen fruit, a touch of yogurt, a touch of juice, and a swig of milk (sometimes soy milk). These smoothies that the kids normally only drink a few sips of because they’re ‘not sweet enough’ are a huge hit when frozen and called, “FRUIT BARS!”
They can’t get enough!
So for Blueberry Popsicle Month, I highly recommend freezing portions of a blueberry smoothie. I’ve heard Dixie cups work well too though with a wooden craft stick right in the middle – simply peel off the waxed paper and eat!
P.S. I’ll be making chocolate pudding tomorrow. I’m hoping to try to make pudding pops from the leftovers. Anyone tried that yet?
