Blueberry Smoothie Popsicles

Smoothies are one of my favorite breakfast dishes.  They're easy to make, we always have the ingredients on hand, and they're both tasty and healthy.  So with the hot weather here in NYC, I decided to turn my smoothies into popsicles!

Blueberry Smoothie Popsicles (makes 5 large popsicles)
Ingredients:
1 cup blueberries (we used frozen blueberries)
1/2 cup vanilla soy milk
1/2 cup non-fat vanilla yogurt
Directions:
1. Using a hand blender, blend all three ingredients together.
3. Freeze overnight.
4. Serve and enjoy!
You can adjust the recipe to suit your tastes - add 1/4 cup more yogurt to make it creamier,  use different fruit combinations, or macerate the fruit to make it sweeter. (To macerate 1 cup of blueberries, put the berries in a pyrex or stainless steel bowl, sprinkle with 1 Tbsp of sugar, and let sit for 30 minutes before mixing it with the rest of the ingredients).

We're submitting this smoothie idea as part of Natasha's (5 Star Makeover) Smoothies and Shakes makeover.

  3. @Valerie - I just ran the mold under hot water for a few seconds and was able to get them all out. I used these Tovolo molds (http://tovolo.com/prod/sweet/pop/groovypop.htm) so I only have to individually remove the pops.
