Popsicle Monday’s : Blueberry Ombre

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.

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.
