Fall may be approaching, but the temperatures are not dropping anytime soon. A great low-cal snack to keep cool are organic frozen blueberry pops! These frozen treats are so easy to make and oh so delicious. You can make them in minutes using three simple ingredients: yogurt, blueberries, and almonds. Here’s how:
Start by mixing a little yogurt with frozen blueberries. I used Trader Joe’s Organic Low Fat Vanilla Yogurt and Organic Blueberries. I like using this yogurt because it’s not too thick, has a smooth consistency, and is absolutely delicious. It works great for popsicles because you can pour it straight from the jar. For these pops, its best to use teeny tiny blueberries. The pop mold is fairly thin so you want to make sure they fit. Mine were a little big so I chopped them into smaller pieces.
Next, pour the mixture into your popsicle mold. I picked up a Zoku popsicle maker from my local Williams Sonoma store. This little gadget is awesome! I pre-froze the mold then simply poured in my mixture, stuck in the plastic stick, and placed it back in the freezer. My popsicle was ready in under ten minutes! It comes with everything you need to make three popsicles. The only bummer is that it only makes one at a time.
Once my mixture was all frozen I took it out of the freezer and the result was amazing. So fresh and sweet! Just what I needed to cool off in this heat wave.
You can also dip the frozen pop back into your yogurt and roll it in sliced almonds. Just throw it back in the freezer for a few more minutes and it will be ready to go!
