Lemon Blueberry Popsicles

I’m honored to be part of this year’s McCormick Everyday Bakers, where I’m going to share my favorite colorful and flavorful recipes. Here we go!Lemon Blueberry Popsicles-1

The first official day of summer is almost here. However, where I live in South Carolina, the heat is in full force and we’re reaching record high daily temperatures. So, it’s already summer in my book! And summer means frozen treats!

While as I kid, I loved those ‘freezies’. You know, the long tubes of frozen sugar water. 😉 Well, it’s time to step up the flavorfulness and color and use REAL ingredients to make popsicles.

I can’t tell you how much having a popsicle mold has come in handy on these hot summer days.

As far as popsicles go, I usually go with strictly fruit and juice, but this time I decided to make a little bit of homemade simple syrup. With the subtle, but not tart lemon flavor and the mild blueberry flavor, it was just natural to want to add a little bust of flavor.

Let me just say, they are amazing! I literally only have one left in my freezer.

Here are a couple more popsicle ideas to start your summer:

Which one sounds best to you? Lemon Blueberry, right? 😉

You could even blend up a little extra and freeze them in ice cube trays to add to your drinks this summer! I mean, hello, Raspberry Peach ice cubes in iced tea. Genius. McCormick is just pure genius.
