Immaculate Heart Blueberry Popsicles

Updated: Jun 18, 2023

It is hot as all get out here so making popsicles for the feast of the Immaculate Heart was a no brainer. I decided to make my own so that we could stick with a healthier, less sugary version of this yummy summer treat. To honor Our Lady I chose blueberries to remind us of the color she wore and the shape of a heart to call to mind this sacred image and devotion. I initially made these with a watermelon mold that I had on hand but you can get heart molds here.

What is the Immaculate Heart of Mary?


This term refers to Mary's pure and perfect heart which gave the profound fiat to God's will. According to Catholic dogma, Mary was sinless throughout her entire life and she remained meek and cooperative with the redemptive mission as the Mother of God. It is her heart that helps us learn how to love God fully and faithfully.


I'm ready to get started, are you! 💙

Measure two cups frozen blueberries and place those in your blender. I used my smoothie Ninja and that worked just the same.


Note: You can use this exact same recipe with other fruit too! For strawberries, kiwi, and other fruits that are less dense I would change the measurement to 2 1/2 cups.

Pour in 2 tablespoons lemon juice to add flavor and flair!

And drizzle in one tablespoon of maple syrup or honey to give it a sweetness. I was going to go with honey but apparently I ran out so I did a quick, on the spot, substitute with maple syrup.

Give that a good blitz until it is smooth and thoroughly blended. Some like little fruit chunks in their popsicles, I'll let you decide the consistency yourself.

Fill your mold all the way to the top, add your popsicle sticks, and close the mold securely to be placed in the freezer for 3 1/2 to 4 hours.

Tip: To take these out without breaking them, like I did 😒, run room temperature water from the kitchen sink over the outside of the mold for about 30 seconds.

These were so good! The natural fruit taste is so much better than the artificial flavors and sweeteners, I just know your going to love these. Pack them in a cooler for a picnic, take them out poolside, or just kick back on the couch and enjoy.
