I realize I haven't shared recipes with you for a while now. With traveling, freelancing and trying to go to the gym, cooking has taken a back seat. But I promise to be better :)
Here's a super easy "recipe" for Blueberry & Pomegranate Popsicles. But first, a bit of a back story. After picking 7 pounds of blueberries, making blueberry & raspberry oatmeal muffins and freezing two bags of the berries, I still had some of the berries oh hand, and was looking for a healthy and easy way to cook them.
That's when Karen from Our Life in The Kitchen came to my rescue and tweeted me a recipe for Blueberry Pomegranate Sorbet. I've been reading Karen's blog for a while now and absolutely ♥ her gorgeous photographs!
Alas, I did not have an ice cream maker, and did not want to spend time scraping what would eventually become a sorbet. Instead, I decided to make popsicles!!!! I also simplified Karen's original recipe.
2 cups blueberries
1/4 (or more) cups of pomegranate juice
1. In a blender process blueberries with pomegranate juice.
2. Pour the mixture into popsicle molds and freeze.
Can it be any simpler!? Caution: the amount of berries and juice is an estimate...I've made these popsicles several weeks ago and could not find my notes. But there is very little room for error. Also, feel free to add a bit of sugar if you want.
This is a great healthy dessert for yourself or if you have kids. And just think about possibilities: strawberries, peaches, watermelon or peach popsicles!
