Blueberry Yogurt Popsicle Recipe

Homemade Popsicles are all the rage in food circles this year. They blow those plastic tubes of neon colored sugar water Popsicles out of the water! I officially declare 2011 The Summer of the Popsicle. It's a nice follow up to 2010 The Summer of the S'more. My family discovered frozen fruit bars last summer. I felt better about serving a snack that is fruit and juice. It became spendy because a box of frozen fruit bars never lasted more than a few days after I brought it home from the store. Lo and behold, the winter holidays dropped a family gift of a set of  BPA free plastic Popsicle molds similar to these down our chimney. Thanks, Santa me! ( Disclosure: I am including affiliate links for your convenience. ) Last week Mother Nature turned off the cold and turned up the heat to full blast. Ahhhh, a nice homemade frozen fruit bar would be refreshing in this weather.     Save this homemade popsicle recipe to your Pinterest boards for later! Share it with your friend

Peach Rum Smoothie Recipe

I came back from the store with a big bunch of fresh peaches. It’s warm outside and I’m in a festive mood – peachy in fact – why not kick back on the front porch with a homemade peach smoothie?




Peach Rum Smoothie Recipe


2 peaches

2/3 cup or so of plain yogurt (I had a single serving size of yogurt so that’s what I used.)

1 heaping tablespoon of apricot jelly (because we were out of orange juice. A splash of OJ works too.)

Spash of rum for fun (optional)

Make it

  1. Peel, pit, and slice the peaches.
  2. Blend the peaches, yogurt, jelly/juice, and rum in a blender until smooth.
  3. Chill in the refrigerator until cold (if you can wait that long.)
  4. Pour into a festive glass and enjoy!

A smoothie is often a breakfast, so I will surely enjoy trying this one, maybe without the rum early in the morning!

Yum! I am going to miss the summer peaches - my a favorite fruit.
