I went blueberry picking this weekend.
This is what I looked like before.
This is what I looked like after.
My parents are visiting so of course I had to take them to my favorite orchard.
You can’t just walk up to the blueberries and start picking them, though.
You have to sneak up on them.
And you need to be stealth like if you’re going to sneak a bite or two.
So I distracted the farm hands.
We were kindly redirected to this sign.
stealing picking is very hard work.
Ice cream will probably remedy this situation. I bet they have blueberry flavored ice cream!
Oh look! They do!
When we got home, we were still hankering for some ice, cold blueberry treats.
It was finally time to whip out the popsicle molds.
Please tell me why you would ever pay for colored corn syrup when you can make tons of fun popsicle flavors at home using simple, all natural ingredients?
For this round, we used
1/2 c. plain, fat-free yogurt
1/2 cup fresh picked (and paid for!) blueberries
Juice of 1/2 an orange
2 tbs. agave nectar
Combine all ingredients into a blender. Blend until smooth. Pour into popsicle molds and freeze for at least four hours.
Oh whatever will I do with all of the leftover blueberries?
