  • Makes
    10 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup agave nectar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 fresh rosemary sprig
  • 1 lemon zest strip (2 inch)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2-1/4 cups frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 10 freezer pop molds or 10 paper cups (3 ounces each) and wooden pop sticks

Directions

  • For lemon syrup, place first 4 ingredients in a small saucepan; bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat; let stand, covered, 10 minutes. Remove rosemary and lemon zest. Stir in lemon juice; cool completely.
  • Place blueberries and sugar in another saucepan; cook and stir over medium heat until berries pop, 5-7 minutes. Cool completely.
  • Add whipped topping to the lemon syrup, whisking to blend. Transfer half of the mixture to pastry bag. Pipe into molds. Layer with blueberries. Pipe the remaining whipped topping mixture over top. Close molds with holders. For paper cups, top with foil and insert sticks through foil.
  • Freeze until firm, about 4 hours. To serve, dip pop molds briefly in warm water before removing.

Test Kitchen tips
  • Agave nectar, made from the same plant used to make tequila, is a sweetener that can be used like sugar or honey.
  • The flavor of lime would be great in this recipe, too. Substitute equal parts lime zest and juice for the lemon.

      I left the rosemary out of these, just not a big fan. These were very tasty without it!
