Homemade Blueberry Popsicles





These are so refreshing and perfect for a hot day like today!  I personally love little fruit chunks in my popsicles but my daughter is not a fan, so I strained out the "yucky lumps" for her.  It was quite hard getting a decent photo; as soon as they come out of the freezer, they didn't stand a chance!  My daughter asked every 15 minutes when they would be done waited as patiently as a 6 year old is capable of and once they were ready, there was about a 2-second interval from the time they left the freezer until the time they entered her mouth.  Kids!
