Summer may be coming to an end, but fresh produce is still in full swing. Recently on a special trip to a local blueberry farm along with my 5 year old son, together we picked 5 pounds of fresh blueberries right off the bush!! Right away my recipe wheels started to turn and the first recipe born was the BlueNana Pop!! It just can’t get any better then fresh picked, sweet blueberries … plus, blueberries are extremely low in calories, high in antioxidant effect, full of phytonutrients, full of fiber, and a great source of manganese. Current research suggests that blueberries may also have positive health effects in cardiovascular health, insulin response, brain health, and cancer risk reduction. The BlueNana Pop is a delicious,cool healthy snack that even offers a protein punch. Here is how to make your next healthy BlueNana Pop!!
- 6 ounces vanilla nonfat greek yogurt
- 1 tsp local honey
- 1 whole banana-chunked
- 1 cup fresh blueberries
Blend all together in blender until thoroughly pureed. I used the Nutribullet to blend, but any high powered blender should work fine. Pour blueberry blend in desired popsicle molds. Freeze 1-2 hours or until thoroughly frozen. Yields 4-5 pops. Blueberry Cheers!! Enjoy.
