Blueberries… so fresh and so cheap cheap!

16 Jul

Blueberries are at the height of their season and are basically being given away in stores right now. I’ve recently seen them for as cheap as $1.50 a pint. Also, keep your eye out for local blueberries (since they are extra yummy). With so many blueberries and so little time, I think this calls for a couple of posts dedicated to this healthy fruit!

Since I’m on a frozen dessert kick, I started my blueberry adventure with these super simple blueberry freezer pops.

Blueberry Banana Freezer Pops

Ingredients

  • 1/4 – 1/2 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1 medium banana

Watch out Pinkberry! These Green Tea Mango Frozen Pops are delish, healthy and best of all SUPER EASY! They are perfect for hot Summer days when you crave a cold, skinny treat.

Green Tea Mango Frozen Yogurt Pops

  • 2 5.3 ounce containers of Greek Yogurt with Honey (try Stonyfield Organic Oikos)
  • 2/3 cup Frozen Mango chunks
  • 2 teaspoons Green Tea Powder

Directions

  1. Add Frozen Mango chunks to food processor and pulse until mango is in small bits, set aside
  2. Add containers of yogurt to bowl and mix to combine honey with yogurt until smooth
  3. Add green tea powder and stir to combine
  4. Fold in reserved mango chunks
  5. Pour into Popsicle molds (or paper cups with wooden sticks), tap on counter to eliminate bubbles and freeze at least 4 hours

Tip: I purchased a small tin of powdered green tea for $6 from my local Japanese market. Also, I think these pops would be great with other fruit flavors such as strawberry, blueberry or pineapple.
