Serving Size: 1 Popsicle
Serves: 6

Ingredients:

2 cups blueberries
2 tablespoons honey
2 cups vanilla Greek yogurt (or other flavor)
Special Equipment: Popsicle mold

Directions:

1. Blend the blueberries in a food processor or blender on high speed until nearly liquefied into a smoothie-like consistency.

2. Pour the thick blueberry liquid into a large bowl. Stir in the honey. Add the yogurt and very gently mix everything together. If you want a swirly look to your popsicles-- do not fully blend the yogurt and blueberries. You want those patches of white and blue. The mixture will be thick.

3. Taste it. If you want it sweeter, you can add a little more agave/honey.

4. Pour mixture evenly into each popsicle mold. If your popsicle mold has slots for sticks, you can insert them before freezing - if not, freeze for 2 hours, then put a wooden popsicle stick in the middle. Continue to freeze for an additional 4-6 hours or overnight.

5. Run popsicle molds under warm water to easily remove. Enjoy!

Notes:

You can be a little generous with the 2 cups of fruit (maybe closer to 2 and 1/4 cups).

Try using another fruit! Examples: You can use around 2 cups of halved cherries, sliced strawberries, chopped peaches, blackberries, or raspberries.
