San Francisco summers are notoriously cool and foggy––the complete opposite of the steamy south where I learned to love the heat, humidity and warm summer nights. It’s true the hot summer sun is just a short drive over the Golden Gate (and conveniently where wine country is) but I admit, wearing jackets and scarves year round in this city makes it hard to get in the summer spirit.
Like really hard.
Because I can’t drive to wine country every day.
Thankfully I have these delicious blueberry popsicles to get me in excited for summer. They’re tangy, cool and sweet which makes them a perfect summertime treat regardless of what the weather is like outside.
Believe me. I walked in the house with boots and a scarf on the other day but one lick and my tastebuds had me convinced it was sunny and a balmy 85 degrees.
With just three ingredients and less than 60 calories a pop, they’ve quickly become one of our favorite swimsuit-friendly summertime treats.
- 2 cups blueberries, fresh or frozen and defrosted
- 1 cup vanilla yogurt
- 1 generous tablespoon fresh lemon juice
Combine ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth. Divide mixture between 6 popsicle molds, add popsicle sticks and freeze until solid, around 3-4 hours.
What’s your favorite homemade popsicle flavor?
