Fun fact, I hate blueberries. But Ari, he seems to love them. Bite sized, and sweet, who wouldn’t? Except me, I guess. My mom went blueberry picking a couple of weeks ago, and needless to say, we have had a ton of blueberries around my house. These popsicles are made just for Ari, and he is only allowed to eat them outside. Blueberry stains are pretty permanent.

This will be the darkest layer. In each popsicle mold, pour a spoonful of the mixture, and add
a few fresh whole blueberries. Freeze for 45 minutes

pour into popsicle mold. Let freeze for 30 minutes, and
add the popsicle sticks. Freeze 20 more minutes
In 1 cup of water, dissolve a few tiny drops of the blueberry mix. Pour into the popsicle molds, on top of the first two layers. Allow to fully freeze.
Blueberries are so vibrant. Beautiful colors in the deepest purple. If i lived in the wilderness, I might use them as lipstick. Like, if there was someone in the wilderness I needed to impress. I really wish I liked them.
