Lemon Blueberry Popsicles

Tomorrow is the last day of school!!! TOMORROW IS THE LAST DAY OF SCHOOL!!!!!!!

Glooooory glory halleluuuuujah. For. realz.

Don’t get me wrong – it’s been a great year. But there comes a point in time (usually right around mid-June) where if I spend ONE MORE MOMENT with 17 four-year-olds, I might actually die. I mean they’re super cute and smart and hilarious but PLEASE GOD I WANT TO HANG OUT WITH GROWN-UPS and not have to discuss Sponge Bob or Transformers or hear every single word that rhymes with “hat”. Please.

So to celebrate the official start of summer and some much-needed time away from those little rascals I call my students, I made you (and me) some SUPER yum, SUPER easy popsicles. I almost feel silly writing a “recipe” for these beauties because they really are simple as pie, but here you go!

And YES these popsicles will be containing vodka the next time I make them (sorry Mom, helllOOOOO summer!).

Lemon Blueberry Popsicles

makes 4

  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • juice of one lemon
  • handful frozen blueberries (you could use fresh, but I like how the frozen blueberries turned the popsicles pink!)

In a small saucepan over medium heat, stir the water and brown sugar until the sugar dissolves. Remove from heat and stir in the lemon juice. Allow the liquid to cool for about 20 minutes, then put 4-5 frozen blueberries in each of your popsicle molds and pour the warm water/juice over the blueberries into the molds. Insert popsicles sticks and put them in the freezer until completely frozen, about 2-3 hours. Enjoy!

    Why do you make me out to be the Queen of the Temperance Union? And isn’t it a fact that alcohol doesn’t freeze?
