Blueberry Lavender Ice Pops

Standard

So I stopped by my local farmers market yesterday afternoon and somehow got totally inspired to make this. It started when I walked by the blueberry guy. There was no way I was leaving without some of those babies. Then I spent a long time talking with the lavender guy. He had some tomato samples sprinkled with this amazing lavender seasoning…oh my.

When I saw this cute little tin of culinary lavender, I knew I wanted to pair the blueberries and lavender in some way. I’ve actually never put these two things together, but they seem like a natural flavor combination. Think I will probably be playing around with this idea some more.

So I made some fresh juice, infused it with lavender for a while and then made these delicious little treats. I used my Zoku ice pop maker, which seems like kind of a silly gadget to own, but I love it in the summertime. I keep the ice pop mold in the freezer so it will be ready when I want to use it. It’s super fun and really easy to use.

Blueberry Lavender Ice Pops

Makes 3

1 large green apple

2 cups green grapes

2 1/4 cup fresh blueberries, divided

1/2 tsp culinary lavender

Juice apple, grapes and 2 cups of the blueberries. Skim foam off of the top. Add lavender and let chill for at least 1 hour.

Follow directions for your ice pop maker. Insert sticks and pour blueberry/lavender juice into the mold about 3/4 of the way to fill line. Add fresh whole blueberries into molds. Top off with more juice if needed, but don’t go over the fill line. Let freeze and remove pops from mold.
