mini vacay day 6: yes, another popsicle [recipe]

Happy Tuesday! I just returned home from a lovely late afternoon walk around the┬áreservoir. I went around once and talked to my Mom at the same time. It was great. We made a plan to cook vegan Mexican food for her Tuesday lunch group! It will be fun. We always have such a good time cooking together. We talked about going up to the farm too for peaches!!!! Omg. I am so excited if you couldn’t tell. Georgia peaches are the BEST. Peach popsicles…..peach cobbler…..grilled peaches….peach salsa….can’t wait!

Ok so this might seem like a cop out as a mini vacay post but it really IS what I did to relax today. After a failed attempt at a experimental (very) blueberry popsicle over the weekend, I started over and created another winner! To me nothing ever really fails so to speak because I learn tons. Creating new recipes has taught me how OK it is to make something not tasty/gross and it’s not a big deal at all. I created a lot of “bad” art and for years it was very challenging to let go of the emotional attachment, especially because most (nearly all) of my work was/is so personal. Food is definitely personal too but I don’t get all emo about it which is nice.

This new recipe is yummy! Feel free to sub out the raw honey for a sweetener of your choice, fruit juice would work, apple, grape, etc. Add sweetener to your taste. I added chia seeds to give it a different texture, it’s not creamy, it’s a little jelly-like, very cool! Like my last recipe this one focuses on blueberries, to read more about their nutritional value click HERE. I hope you enjoy this delicious summer treat! I have a couple more blueberry popsicle recipes up my sleeve, one I’ll post next week after another trial run ;)
