Directions

  1. Blend the blueberries and sugar in a food processor until smooth; strain through a fine-mesh strainer, pressing with a wooden spoon to separate the blueberry puree from any chunks of skin or seeds.
  2. Stir the strained 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.

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!

it was nice but just too sweet i think only 3/4 of the sugar should be used

A little on the sweet side for me. Next I will try adding a little more lemon juice to get the tart flavor I love so much.
