Beat the summer heat with this easy and delicious blueberry basil popsicle recipe!

Blueberries are high in antioxidants and research suggests they may fight wrinkles, improve motor skills and lower blood pressure. Fresh basil, on the other hand, is highly fragrant and pairs wonderfully with blueberries. Basil’s health benefits are numerous, but in terms of bone health, is a good source of vitamin K, manganese, calcium, and magnesium.

This dairy-free, refined sugar-free, vegan (with the omission of honey) dessert recipe can be enjoyed by everyone! What types of popsicle recipes are you whipping up this summer? Let me know in the comments below!

    I was already on your mailing list from a previous purchase like, but after my recent order of strontium, I received two identical emails yesterday and again today. Please unsubscribe me from one of them. I appreciate one copy, but not two. Thanks!
