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.
