banana + blueberry popsicles

 I don't know about where you are, but where we are, it's already hot as blazes!  So the cure for any hot and humid day is a popsicle.  Well, really the cure is air conditioning and a pool, but a popsicle can really help.  My mom recently passed down the popsicle molds she used when I was a child, so now I'm inspired to create all sorts of popsicles.  I'm sensing a summer recipe theme here, people.  If you'd like to try your hand at these tasty frozen treats, you'll need the following.

2 ripe bananas
1/2 cup blueberries
1/2 cup yogurt (I used plain greek yogurt)
2 T honey
juice of 1/2 a lemon
popsicle molds (or paper cups with popsicle sticks)
makes 8 popsicles

 Combine your ingredients in your blender, or use your immersion blender if you have one.
 And blend it all together.
 Pour into your molds or cups evenly.
Set in freezer.  I froze mine overnight. Run the popsicles briefly under hot water, and they should pop right out!
So so easy, and so so yummy.  Enjoy! 


  1. Yum! I just bought some popsicle molds at Ikea so I'm excited to test these out. I broke the blender and was thinking about using the food processor but I do have an emersion blender which is an excellent idea!

  2. Adore this-- we are having the kids' friends over this weekend then doing the farmer's market/flea market, this looks like a great snack they can make to bring along!

  3. This sounds delicious! I don't have a pool, but we can make popsicles! :)

  4. I'm so glad the bananas and blueberries didn't go to waste. These look great, they take me back to the good old days.

  5. Awww...I had those molds growing up! I wonder if my mom still has them?? I've been wanting a good popsicle recipe that wasn't too sugary. This one looks great - I think we'll have to try it because, yes, hot as blazes! Ugh.

  6. Great Idea! Looks delicious :)

    Lovely Greetings ♡
