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

My Lunch is Boring, Can You Help?

I work from home. Most of my lunches are either leftovers or sandwiches. It saves serious cashola on the lunch front and it is healthier than fast food.

When we don’t have leftovers on hand, I take the easy way out and make a sandwich for lunch.

With my new lactose free diet, lunch is getting boring.

Especially sandwiches, I can’t put cheese on my sandwiches every day like I used to. I got a nasty surprise in more ways than one (ahem) when I found lactose listed in the ingredients of my turkey lunchmeat yesterday. Aw, man! I have to give that up too?!


I know I could buy premade dairy free cheese and such. In fact, out of curiosity I bought a box of dairy free macaroni and cheese. However, since I try to cook from scratch as much as possible, I don’t want to start relying on a lot of processed dairy free food.

I guess I’m going to have to do some sort of once a week or once a month cooking of dairy free lunch options, so I can have a quick and easy lunch during the week.

The problem is I’m stuck for lunch ideas. Can you help?

What are your favorite dairy free lunch ideas?
