Blueberry-Coconut Greek Yogurt Popsicles
Makes 10 popsicles
2 cups Greek yogurt
1 cup full fat coconut milk
4 tablespoons granulated sugar*, divided
2 cups fresh blueberries
*You may use honey instead of sugar
1. In a large bowl, combine the Greek yogurt with one cup of coconut milk and two tablespoons of sugar. Stir vigorously until you have a smooth consistency. Taste and add more sweetener if desired. Set aside.
2. Make the blueberry sauce by combining the 2 cups fresh blueberries with the remaining 2 tablespoons of granulated sugar in a small pot. Place over medium heat and cook until the blueberries start to break down. Stir and continue cooking until it reaches a jam-like consistency. You can use the back of a wooden spoon or a fruit masher to mash the berries. Once the jam-like consistency is reached, remove the blueberry sauce from the heat.
3. Place a tablespoon of the yogurt mixture in each popsicle mold. Add a tablespoon of blueberry sauce. Top with another tablespoon of the yogurt. Continue alternating until the popsicle mold is nearly full. Place the top on the mold and add the popsicle sticks. Freeze for six hours.
4. Once the popsicles are completely frozen, place the mold under running water so that they will loosen. Remove the popsicles and enjoy immediately, or place in the freezer in an air-tight container with parchment paper dividing each row of popsicles. These are an easy grab-and-go breakfast for summer, or a cool treat for any time of day.
