Jessica! With the comment:
My summer obsession is trying new things in the kitchen. I just baked a cake from scratch for the first time ever. Joy the Baker and Tracy from Shutterbean are giving me a TON of inspiration and the boy is enjoying the influx of homemade goodies.
I’m going to have to say, and I may be biased here, but I think trying out new things in the kitchen is a totally amazing thing to be obsessed with this summer! Also, homemade cake is just the best. It really is. Also, it has been my experience that boys really like homemade edibles. They just do.
So, Jessica, girl, I am going to send you an email to confirm. Then…I’ll be sending your little bundle of polish goodness your way!
Everyone else, thank you for entering! And coming out to comment, WOW…I didn’t know there were so many of you out there…lurking.
You’re all awesome.
I wish you could all win.
But, alas, you cannot.
Sorry for that. Really, truly. But…
…I made you blueberry yogurt pops to make up for it.
I hope that’s okay.
These pops are a really tasty treat.
Creamy and fruity and cold.
Just perfect for late summer.
They are made of blueberries, greek yogurt, and sugar/maple syrup/honey. You choose.
Blueberry Frozen Yogurt Pops
I used greek yogurt because I pretty much always have it on hand, as it is my preferred yogurt. It’s extra thick, creamy, delicious, etc. I used the 2% kind from Fage. If you have the regular kind, go ahead and use that. It will be just fine. If you don’t have blueberries or don’t like bluberries…like my weirdo best friend…then, use another berry. Raspberries would be tasty! Strawberries too! Also, use whatever you like to sweeten these up, since the yogurt is plain. I used granulated sugar and a little maple syrup. I just like blueberries and maple, but honey is greek yogurts best friend…so basically, do whatever feels right to you.
1 cup blueberries
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1/4 cup sugar
2 cups plain greek yogurt
2-4 Tablespoons maple syrup (the real deal please)
In a medium saucpan heat berries over medium with lemon juice and sugar, simmer for a few minutes until berries release their juices and mixture thickens slightly. Set aside to cool to room temperature.
In a large bowl mix together greek yogurt, blueberry sauce, and maple syrup (to taste) and stir. Spoon or pour mixture into popsicle molds and freeze.
Eat ’em when you’re hot and the pops are cold. It will be a good idea, promise.
