blueberry creamsicles

June 17, 2013

in Frozen Treats

If you have a creative bent like me (I’ve always gravitated toward artistic pursuits), you’ll enjoy the process of making these blueberry creamsicles. Swirl the layers together for a beautiful blend of flavors and colors – honeyed blueberries layered with tangy-sweet yogurt makes one irresistible combination. Be prepared to make a bit of a mess, though that’s simply part of the fun!

Blueberry Creamsicles | Tutti Dolci

Blueberry Creamsicles
1 1/2 cups plain fat-free Greek yogurt
3 Tbsp honey
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups blueberries
1/4 cup honey

Place yogurt in an ultra-fine sieve or a strainer lined with cheesecloth and strain over a bowl in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours (or up to overnight). Combine yogurt, honey and vanilla in a food processor; pulse until smooth. Pour mixture into a squeeze bottle or liquid measuring cup; wipe processor clean.

Combine blueberries and honey in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and let cool for 10 minutes. Place blueberry mixture in food processor and puree until smooth. Pour mixture into a squeeze bottle or liquid measuring cup.

Fill popsicle molds with alternating layers of yogurt and blueberry mixtures, leaving a 1/2-inch of space at the top of each mold. Swirl layers together with a metal skewer. Insert popsicle sticks and freeze until completely firm, about 6 hours. Let stand at room temperature 5 minutes before unmolding.

I keep meaning to pick up some blueberries, I’ve been so blown away by the blueberry ice creams and popsicles—the color is so vibrant. I love the squeeze bottle/swirl technique—I can’t wait to try that!

I just bought a popsicle mold today and am looking for popsicle recipes. These look so good and I can’t believe how easy they are to make. For some reason, I thought making homemade popsicles was difficult. I’m glad I was wrong! :)

Love the colors of these creamsicles! I feel like I’m always making a mess whenever I cook so I like recipes that even encourage it (or at least prepare me for it) ;)

That pattern! They look gorgeous, and healthy too… yogurt for the win! Eat it down, pretend it’s ice-cream, but with just a fraction of the calories!

Gorgeous, and I really cannot wait to try this when I come back from my vacation. I have to pray hard that blueberries are still good then… I’m a bit worried! I eat 2 cups of blueberries by themselves at one sitting! These 8 creamsicles are all mine… :D
