A healthy summertime treat your kids will LOVE!

Blueberry lemon popsicles make a cool treat for hot summer days, plus they’re full of Vitamin C and antioxidants!

To make, combine the following ingredients in your blender:

  • 1 cup blueberries
  • fresh juice from 5 lemons, be sure to strain out the seeds
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup or honey (you can use more or less to taste to adjust the tartness)
  • 3 cups of water

Blend thoroughly until the blueberries liquefied.

Freeze in popsicle trays or BPA-free popsicle bags for 4-6 hours until frozen.

Tips:

  • For younger children, the juice can be strained to remove the blueberry seeds before freezing.
  • Raspberries can be used instead of blueberries for a different flavour combination.
  • To add in some protein, replace 1 cup of water with 1 cup of Greek yogurt.
  • Safety: in order to reduce the risk of botulism, honey should not be used in children under one year of age.
