Quick & Easy Blueberry Popsicle Recipe

Use fresh or frozen thawed blueberries in this easy blueberry popscile recipe that are perfect for a warm sunny day. I used 1/3 cup of agave sweetener in this recipe, but you can play with the amount depending on how sweet you or your kiddos enjoy.

While this is an obvious choice as a snack or dessert treat for kids, it's also a fun dessert for a summer BBQ or casual dinner party.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Additional Time 10 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup agave nectar or honey
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/8 tsp lemon zest
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 2-1/4 cups frozen thawed whipped topping, heavy cream or yogurt
  • 1 fresh rosemary sprig (optional)
  • 10 freezer pop molds or 10 paper cups (3 ounces each) and wooden pop sticks

Instructions

  1. In a small saucepan add lemon zest, water, agave or honey, half the blueberries and rosemary. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally and until berries pop (about 5-7 minutes).
  2. Remove from heat.
  3. Remove rosemary.
  4. Stir in lemon juice.
  5. Let cool completely.
  6. Add whipped topping, cream or yogurt to the cooled blueberry mixture, whisking to blend.
  7. Add the remaining whole blueberries. Or you can layer the remaining blueberries in the popsicle molds.
  8. Transfer half the mixture to a pastry bag or a ziploc bag (and cut a small hole at the end).
  9. Pipe into molds. My favorite are these BPA Free Silicone Popsicle molds. They are super easy to store If layering with blueberries add to decorate to your desire. Pipe the remaining whipped topping mixture over top.
  10. Close molds with holders. If using paper cups, top with foil and insert sticks through foil.
  11. Freeze until firm, about 4 hours. To serve, dip pop molds briefly in warm water before removing.
  12. Enjoy!

Notes

  • You can make a variation of these popsicles using any berry!
  • For an adult variation, add a bit of vodka or rum to the mixture to for spiked popsicles.
