A few years I contributed my recipe for green tea cucumber pops to the FN Dish’s summer series. The gals from the Gooseberry Patch asked if they could feature my recipe in their next cookbook.

This week bloggers like me are sharing our favorite frozen treats with the Food Network and YOU.  On the list for this week’s #SummerSoiree is frozen treats.

Wanting to share with you something that would be quick, yummy and refreshing on a hot summer day, I thought about these frozen blueberry treats. I wish I could tell you that I somehow created this recipe in a dream or that it was long lost recipe from my grandmother, but the fact is that I’m sure I’m not the only person who has made yogurt-covered blueberries. Here’s the thing though, it’s worth sharing again! These are delicious, addicting and good for you!

You can use either fresh or frozen blueberries to make these treats. Frozen blueberries obviously won’t take as long to freeze up again. I have made these yummy treats with different flavorings, but today I used Bee Blessed Galberry honey, a local company here in Raleigh, NC, and a good vanilla extract. Almond extract is really great, too.

Fun for the whole family, simply use two toothpicks to pick up the berries, swirl around and remove onto a plate lined with wax paper.
