Blueberry Banana Pops

What kid doesn't love popsicles in the summer heat? I wasn't super excited about the amount of sugar and additives in store-bought popsicles, so I looked for some recipes online.




Most of the recipes I found had sugar, or called for straining out the skins on the blueberries. Since so much of the good stuff is in those skins, I came up with my own (much simpler) version.





Add the following to a blender:

8 oz plain yogurt
1 banana
A handful or two of blueberries
A squirt or two of honey

Blend everything up, and pour into popsicle molds. (You'll get about four regular sized popsicles.)




After that, it's just a matter of chasing your child around the house with paper towels to catch all the drips!

Yum! Good luck with the clean up - I send them outside and then I can just hose them down when they're done! ;-)

Yum, actually, I don't like blueberries, but that thing looks good!
