Summer break is officially upon us, so bring on all the summer fun and treats! This time of year always gives me the sweet tooth cravings, and who doesn’t love a delicious popsicle on a hot day?


     Unfortunately, the standard ice cream truck treat is packed with sugar, dyes and other junk that just doesn’t serve our bodies well.


     So, here’s a grownup creamsicle recipe (with just 80 calories) that tastes good and will help you feel good as you put your feet up poolside!


Coconut Blueberry Creamsicles

    • 1/3 cup reduced fat plain Greek yogurt
    • 1/3 cup canned light coconut milk
    • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
    • 3 teaspoons raw honey (1 teaspoon separated for use)
    • 2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
    • 1/4 cup water

     Combine yogurt, coconut milk, vanilla extract, and 1 teaspoon honey in a medium bowl and mix well. Pour mixture evenly into ice-pop molds and freeze at least 2 hours or until partially set.

Place blueberries, water, and remaining 2 teaspoons honey in blender; cover and blend until smooth. Slowly pour blueberry mixture evenly into ice pop molds on top of coconut milk mixture; freeze at least 4 hours or until set.

Makes 4 servings.
