For those hot summer days, cool off with this Paleo-friendly recipe for blueberry vanilla yogurt popsicles. Dairy free and simple to make, this frozen treat fits into a Paleo lifestyle and lets you indulge your natural craving for treats.

Preparation time: 20 minutes, plus freezing time

Cooking time: 5 minutes

Yield: 8 servings

One 13.5-ounce can full-fat coconut milk

2 tablespoons arrowroot powder

2 tablespoons raw honey

1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1/8 teaspoon ground vanilla bean

1-1/2 cups fresh or thawed frozen blueberries

  1. In a medium saucepan, whisk the coconut milk, arrowroot powder, and honey.

  2. Heat the mixture over medium heat until it simmers and thickens, stirring constantly. Let it cool for 5 minutes and then mix in the vanilla extract and ground vanilla.

  3. Divide 1 cup of the mixture evenly into 8 popsicle molds, filling each mold about full. Freeze for about 1 hour.

  4. In a blender, combine the blueberries with the reserved coconut milk mixture and blend until smooth.

  5. Fill the popsicle molds to the top with the blueberry mixture and insert a wooden stick in each.

  6. Freeze for 4 to 6 hours, or until frozen.

  7. To remove the popsicles from the molds, dip the molds in a bowl of warm water for 30 seconds.

If you can’t find ground vanilla bean, you can use another ½ teaspoon of vanilla extract instead.
