These healthy Roasted Blueberry Lavender Popsicles for #popsicleweek are sure to cool you down for a refreshing snack or even an on the go breakfast!
First off, #POPSICLEWEEK!
Did you plant lavender in your garden this year? I’ve got all the standards – tomatoes, jalapenos, basil, thyme, tarragon, chives, rosemary, mint, and…lavender. It’s been so hot, humid, and rainy these past few weeks that everything is growing like crazy and I’ve found a good use for most of it but the lavender. First off, I’m not a patient person and you have to go through the whole drying process before you can use it which totally annoyed me. After I finally let the flowers dry out for a week, I left it on my counter for another week pretending like an idea for it would come to mind. Honestly the wait process almost made me lose interest until I was reminded that #popsicleweek was coming up. The thought of lavender popsicles was so lovely and plus, these little Roasted Blueberry Lavender Popsicles were invented!
These Roasted Blueberry Lavender Popsicles are relatively healthy with a plain yogurt base and a honey simple syrup for sweetener. Roasting the blueberries concentrates their flavor for an extra punch that don’t leave the pops watery at all. If you aren’t growing lavender in your garden then you can usually find dried flowers in the bulk section of most grocery stores. However, if you are having trouble finding it then you can definitely make these without adding lavender into the simple syrup for a less floral flavor.
