    Serves: 4 

    • 360g blueberries
    • 100g caster sugar
    • 175ml water
    • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

    Prep:15min  ›  Extra time:4hr freezing  ›  Ready in:4hr15min 

    1. Blend the blueberries and sugar in a food processor until smooth; strain through a fine-mesh sieve, pressing with a wooden spoon to separate the blueberry puree from any chunks of skin or seeds.
    2. Stir the blueberry puree, water and lemon juice together in a shallow glass baking dish or tray. Place the dish in the freezer; scrape and stir the blueberry mixture with a fork once an hour until evenly frozen and icy, about 4 hours. Scrape to fluff and lighten the ice crystals; spoon into chilled glasses to serve.

    Delicious! My 14 month old loves blueberries. He has been eating them like crazy the last few weeks. I wanted to try a something different for him. He loves popsicles, so I thought he would enjoy this. And he did! He was so upset when it was all gone! We are going to have to go back to the grocery store tomorrow for more berries so we can make it again.  -  26 May 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    this was a great recipe, perfect for using the bluberries that weren't so sweet to start with. The color is beautiful and the taste was refreshing and not too cloying. Thanks for the great recipe!  -  23 Aug 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    it was nice but just too sweet i think only 3/4 of the sugar should be used  -  20 Dec 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
