There’s nothing that says “SUMMER IS HERE” like a good ‘ol popsicle. Wouldn’t you agree?

Blueberry Smoothie Popsicles only need three ingredients: frozen blueberries, fresh (or frozen) pineapple, and your choice of low-fat milk. Never cut a pineapple before? No stress. Check out this tutorial to learn how.
Next, pour the milk into the blender and then add the fruit.
Blend on high until smooth.
Pour the smoothie into two 8 oz. plastic cups. You can also use paper cups and/or a popsicle mold for this step.
Place smoothie cups in the freezer on a flat surface (where they won’t tip over). When the smoothie is partially frozen, stick a wooden popsicle stick in the middle of the cups.
Once the smoothie is completely frozen (anywhere from 2-5 hours depending on your freezer temperature), remove the popsicle from the cup. You may need to cut a small slice in the plastic cup to help the popsicle ease out of its mold.
Most of all, make sure to enjoy your delicious frozen treat!
