Blueberry Vanilla Yogurt Ice Pop Popsicles

http://www.theslowroasteditalian.com/2012/06/blueberry-vanilla-yogurt-popsicles.html

Perfectly sweetened and packed with delicious vanilla yogurt and luscious fresh blueberries. This simple ice pop recipe is the consummate summer treat.  They are creamy, fruity and ice cold!  Loaded with vitamin C, antioxidants and power boosting protein, these popsicles are going to be a staple in my freezer now.

This post was written June 2012. Even as I share it with you again, I do not have the heart to change it.  This summer could have been coined "The Summer of the Popsicle". I made so many ice pop varieties for my mom and Munchkin and we enjoyed every one. My mom passed the next summer, but this was such a fond memory it brings a grin to my face. 

Isn't summer wonderful?  Even with the heat in Arizona I love summer.  The energy is pure happiness and carefree fun.  We just enjoyed an amazing vacation in Sedona with my parents and can not even describe how breath taking Sedona is.

We are back from our fantastic trip and I am so excited to be home.  Vacations are awesome, but coming home is lovely. Tonight I am kicking back and enjoying my last night with my parents.  They leave tomorrow morning.  Where does the time go?

My mom and I had an amazing time walking the trails in Sedona and exploring. Watching her chase Munchkin through the park like she didn't have a care in the world, completely lit me up.

We had so much fun in the kitchen while she was here, too. It was amazing to cook together and make jam together. While she was here I created this popsicle just for my mom and Munchkin.  It is a perfectly sweet treat, packed with delicious vanilla yogurt and luscious fresh blueberries.  It is succulent, fruity, and creamy. They both loved it and when I went to visit my mom in Florida, I bought and shipped a popsicle mold and make her a freezer full of her favorite flavors.

This is an incredibly refreshing dessert and is low in calories.  Munchkin loves these and so does mom.  Any healthy snack that my Munchkin devours makes me smile.

I am sure these popsicles will make you smile too!!!  Enjoy!

With love from our simple kitchen to yours.

  13. These look really good. Just be sure you know that if you use the blueberries with dairy they will not have their antioxidant power. I gave up blueberries in my smoothies when I found this out. http://www.naturalnews.com/025516_blueberries_antioxidant_milk.html

  15. Not understanding one part, the recipe and the picture don't seem to match - not sure how you get the light vanilla top if you blended it w/ the blueberries. Am I missing something?

    1. Good point Andie. I made these and split the yogurt added some with the blueberries and some on its own... Here is the recipe for you.

      Fill popsicle molds with 1½ cups yogurt. Layer blueberry mixture on top. Freeze 4-24 hours, until popsicles are frozen through. I like to freeze mine for 24 hours.

      Hope that helps! Donna

    2. sorry, what? You put vanilla yogurt on the bottom (no blueberries), and then put the blueberry mixture on top? Wouldn't the yogurt by itself be very not-sweet? Want to make these for my little grandson and thinking the first bite of tart yogurt would turn him right off.

    3. Vanilla flavoured yogurt is already sweetened.

  16. Go with the popsicle sticks! Have you tried Yakult Milk yogurt (with the fruit on the bottom) in the freezer? It's delicious!

  17. I found this recipe a few weeks ago on Pinterest and have been dying to try it. I finally found popsicle molds on sale at Kohls and made them last weekend, but I substituted the blueberries for fresh cherries. I was positively giddy when I tasted them. They were absolutely DELICIOUS. I used vanilla flavored greek yogurt instead of regular vanilla yogurt and they turned out great. No problems with consistency, flavor, or texture. They're really refreshing for summer and I can't wait to try other flavor combinations. Thanks so much for the recipe!! :) This is a summer favorite for sure!

  20. I like the Blueberry, but my favorite fruit is Strawberries so I did the Strawberry Banana and it will become a Summer staple at my house. I have loved everything you have shared. Thanks

  22. Those really look good! I'm a total schmuck when it comes to doing things like this, and I'm struggling to just make a simple frozen yogurt popsicle, but I am very willing to learn, so please give me some advice and tell me what to try next: https://youtu.be/nClSsqNgl0Q
