Blueberry Lemon Popsicles

Posted by alexcsmall on Jul 12 2008 | Dessert

There are a lot of funny things about food blogging. There are haha funny things, like when we try to tell our friends stories about our lives and they’re inform us that they already know what we are going to say because they read it here, but there are also interesting funny things.

One interesting funny thing is that there are trends in the food blogging world. Right now, for example, grilled pizza is very trendy. Trends often correlate with seasonal produce, but sometimes they seem random, like baking with bacon. Not really getting that one.

Popsicles are another trendy item at the moment. Fancy ones with alcohol and herbs, simple uni-flavored fruit pops, pretty much anything that you can imagine is out there. We made ours with the last of the blueberries from our picking extravaganza (we only used one cup though, to my father’s relief) and lemon, because we’ve heard that the combo is amazing.

These treats are so refreshing on a hot day. And they’re guiltless enough to justify having one for afternoon snack and another for dessert. Feel free to experiment with flavors to your heart (or tongue’s) content.

Ingredients:
(blueberry popsicle)
1 cup blueberries
1/4 cup frozen grape juice concentrate, slightly thawed

(lemon popsicle)
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup water
zest of 2 lemons
1 cup lemon juice

Make blueberry flavor by pulsing blueberries in a food processor for about 10 seconds, then stirring to combine with the grape juice concentrate. To make lemon flavor, heat water and sugar, stirring, until sugar has dissolved then add zest, bring to a simmer, and remove from heat. Let cool. Pour the sugar mixture through a strainer into the lemon juice, and stir to combine. Pour blueberry flavor into popsicle molds and fill about 1/4 of the way. Freeze (about 30 minutes), then fill another 1/4 with lemon flavor, and continue alternating and freezing until popsicles are ready.

  5. They look really yummy! I wish the sun would stay out long enough to enjoy some ice lollies outside!
    That’s a clever idea to layer them as they look amazing!

    How do you prevent the mixture from sticking to the inside of the mold? I can never get the Popsicle to slide out easily. They always stick and pieces end up breaking off inside the mold. What a pain in the ass.

    Hey Ron, you could try quickly running the mold under hot water, enough to slide it out. Or try flexible silicon molds.

    Hi Al x 2, these look unreal . However, on the google entry, it said there would be something here about how to stop the popsicles from sticking to the moulds. Any clues? Mine stock to the moulds so much that the stock ends up coming out,and the popsicle stsys in the mould. It’s hopeless. I don’t even know how to check up to see if you end up telling us how to get them out. But I’ll subscribe-and check that way. Anyway, just in case you do know. All the best, Susan
