Preparation Time: 5 minutes

Equipment You'll Need:
Mixing Bowl: You'll want a medium-sized mixing bowl to combine the yogurt, protein powder, and honey.
Blender or Food Processor: To create the smooth blueberry puree, you'll need either a blender or a food processor.
Popsicle Molds: Essential for shaping and freezing your popsicles. If you don't have molds, don't worry – small paper cups can be a great alternative.

Your List of Ingredients - Serves 4
1.1 lbs. (500g) Greek yogurt
1 oz. (30g) plant-based vanilla protein powder (here's a recommendation)
1 tbsp. raw honey
5.2 oz. (100g) organic blueberries
Step 1: Gather your ingredients
Before you start, make sure you have all your ingredients ready. You'll need Greek yogurt, vanilla protein powder, honey, and fresh blueberries.
Step 2: Mix the Yogurt, Protein Powder, and Honey
In a mixing bowl, combine 1.1 lbs. (500g) of Greek yogurt, 1 oz. (30g) of plant-based vanilla protein powder, and 1 tablespoon of honey.
Stir the ingredients until well combined. This mixture will not only provide a creamy texture but also a protein-packed punch to your popsicles.
Step 3: Prepare the Blueberry Puree
Take 5.2 oz. (100g) of fresh blueberries and place them in a blender or food processor.
Blend until you have a smooth and vibrant blueberry puree.
Step 4: Incorporate the Blueberry Puree
Gently fold the blueberry puree into the yogurt and protein mixture. This will give your popsicles a beautiful purple hue and a burst of fruity flavor.
Step 5: Pour into Popsicle Molds
Carefully pour the blueberry and yogurt mixture into your popsicle molds. If you don't have molds, small paper cups with wooden sticks can work as a great alternative.
Step 6: Freeze Until Set
Insert popsicle sticks into each mold or cup, and place them in the freezer.
Allow the popsicles to freeze for a few hours, or until they're completely set. This typically takes about 4-6 hours, so you can make them in the morning and enjoy them in the afternoon.
Step 7: Enjoy Your Blueberry High-Protein Popsicles
Once the popsicles are frozen solid, remove them from the molds by running them under warm water for a few seconds. This will help release the popsicles easily.
Now, it's time to indulge in your homemade Blueberry Protein Popsicles! They're a lovely way to cool down on a hot day while giving your body a protein boost.
