So maybe I’m getting carried away with all these blueberry recipes. There are just so many things to try and create. It’s difficult to narrow the vastness of the blueberry into just a few blogs. And I know there are so many other recipes out there to try.
Here’s my last blog about these little jewels.
It’s summer so why not close out this spread with a **BANG!** or a cool one at that.
How about some frozen treats?
As you read in my blog from June 13th, “It was me, I did it” I love ice cream. And really most froze treats too. So here are my top favorites, that have blueberries, that are super simple and extremely delicious, not to forget the health aspects too 😉
Frozen Yogurt with Blueberries
You will need:
- Plain yogurt, I like Noosa best
- 1 tsp lemon juice
- Popsicle sticks
- Popsicle stand
Pour your yogurt into the bottle half of the popsicle stand and freeze for 5 minutes. This will give you a few extra minutes to prepare the blueberries. Using a food processor, blend the blueberries until they’ve reached a smooth constancy. Add the lemon juice and combine.
After 5 minutes has passed, pour the blueberry mixture to the top half of the popsicle stand. Insert your sticks and freeze for at least 4 hours.
Looking for something a little more decadent? How about Lemon Blueberry Sorbet pops?
Using your favorite lemonade mix or prepared juice from the store, fill the popsicle stand 1/2 to 3/4 of the way full. Add as many blueberries as you desire. Allowing some to fall down into the lemonade, freeze for 4-6 hours or until frozen solid.
You may also puree the blueberries prior to adding to the lemonade mixture for a smooth and constant texture. I love frozen blueberries so I like them whole.
Perhaps you’re wanting something even more elegant and perhaps sweet? How about Frozen Blueberry Cheesecake Pops? HA! Well, why not?!
These are just as simple as the others!
- 1 8oz container of cream cheese, room temperature
- 1/4 c sugar
- 1/2 c heavy cream
- Blueberries – as many or as few as you’d like
In a mixing bowl, combine the cream cheese and sugar until sugar has dissolved. Add the heavy cream to mixture and combine well. Fill popsicle stand 3/4 full of cheesecake mixture and top with blueberries. Freeze for 4-6 hours until frozen solid and firm. These little wonderpops don’t last so grab one before serving to your crowd or dinner party hehe
