Fresh and Fruity Blueberry Lime Yogurt Popsicles

It's been a scorcher of a weekend around here. Seattle has been in the 90s which for us is HOT! HOT! HOT! We've been spending a lot of time in the water which helps us to keep our cool. Another great way we've been keeping our cool was with these fresh and fruity Blueberry Lime Yogurt Popsicles. Making popsicles was also on our Summer Bucket List so we've knocked another fun thing off our list!

I used these popsicle molds and found them to be awesome! Pro Tip: Running the frozen popsicles under a bit of warm water helps release the yummy frozen treat.

My popsicle taste tester heartily approved of these treats and even requested one for breakfast. I gave in. It was already in the 80s and heck, these have fruit in them so they are practically healthy.
