September 2nd is National Blueberry Popsicle Day
you're looking for something to do today then let me help you cool off
because it's National Blueberry Popsicle Day! Oh yes, we shall
all have blue tongues! Let's get right into celebrating National
Blueberry Popsicle Day!
WHY IS THIS A
Well actually, most of the time you see a blue popsicle it's not
blueberry; it's blue raspberry. And yeah it's a blue berry, but it's
not a blueberry... ya get me? But when you do eat an actually blueberry
popsicle it's pretty dang good! So I think today is a day to give props
to the blue underdog in the popsicle kingdom and get people to realize
what they're missing out on. Trust me; it's one delicious popsicle!
And as you go searching for a blueberry popsicle, don't be
discouraged from all the blue raspberry ones you see! There will be at
least one type of blueberry popsicle, even if it is combined with some
other fruit. It's actually very common to see blueberries mixed with
acai berries and today I even saw one mixed with pomegranate. So they
are out there, they're just a little harder to find!
But if you
can find a popsicle that contains actual blueberries, not just some
blueberry flavoring, then you might be in for a nutritious treat!
Blueberries have been found to have things in them which can keep
cancer and inflammation at bay. Ah yes, your popsicle might even slow
down your aging process! It's crazy what those blueberries are capable
of but now you have a few more reasons to locate your blueberry
popsicle. The hunt is on!
So, how can you celebrate today? Well, start out easy and
just go looking for a box of blueberry-infused popsicles. You'll
probably find them, you'll probably buy them, you'll probably eat them
and you'll probably like them. But if all of the past statements are
true then you definitely had one heck of a successful celebration!
But hey, there are a lot more options available if you want to
make your own blueberry popsicles. First, let's start with the popsicle
molds... You can use paper cups, ice cube trays or even molds that are
made for this specific purpose. With the cups and trays all you'll want
to do is put some plastic wrap over top of it and then you have
something to hold your popsicle sticks or toothpicks in place. But with
the molds, they usually have their own reusable sticks as part of the
Then you get to go hunting for the fun part... the juice!
There are so many different combinations of blueberry juices that you
might end up wanting to make quite a few batches of popsicles. You can
get straight up blueberry juice, blueberry juice mixed with other fruit
juices and even blueberry fruit smoothies or protein drinks if you
want. Then all you have to do is wait a little bit for them to freeze
and you are golden... I mean, blue! Have a great day and enjoy
your blue tongue!
