As in home decor and fashion, there are also trends in food. Right now, things with kale, donuts, or cold-brewed coffee seem to be everywhere. (Hmm, maybe I should make a cold-brewed coffee kale donut. No, never mind, that would be terrible.)
Another food I’m seeing a lot lately is popsicles. So when my friends over at Yulu hooked me up with a dozen of their delicious blueberry yogurts, I thought it would be the perfect thing to stuff inside a popsicle. (Side note: You really need to try this yogurt. I’m not just saying this. It is the creamiest yogurt I’ve ever eaten. Move over Greek yogurt, there’s a new guy in town, and it’s riding in on a kangaroo. Or maybe a dingo. Or a koala. Who knows.)
Now, you could just scoop the yogurt into a popsicle mold, freeze it, and you’d be set. Delicious yogurt popsicles with little effort. (This is the popsicle mold I’m using by the way. Highly recommended.)
However, I wanted to turn up the volume on my pops. I decided to make them yogurt parfait-inspired popsicles. Fresh berries, a little granola, some honey. Delicious.
These extra ingredients add color, crunch, and bursts of flavor. Plus, since this is technically a parfait, it’s perfect for breakfast. – Who wouldn’t want to start off a hot summer day with a cool popsicle?
Let me show you how to make them.
makes 10 popsicles
Here's what you will need:
3 cups Yulu Blueberry Aussie Style Yogurt
1 cup fresh blueberries
1 tablespoon honey
1/2 cup granola
Popsicle mold and popsicle sticks
Place the blueberries and honey in a blender or food processor. Blend until pureed.
Fill your popsicle mold by layering in the yogurt, pureed blueberries, and granola until full.
Insert popsicle sticks. Freeze for about 4 hours or until completely frozen.
Yulu has a variety of flavors, so if blueberries aren’t your thing, you can give these a try with another flavor combo.
And dare I say that these are a much better choice when you’re craving something sweet. (Probably healthier than a Cold-Pressed Coffee Kale Donut.)
Give these a go and let me know what you think. Are you ready to hop on the popsicle bandwagon? What food trends are you loving these days?
