Yield: about 10 popsicles

Ingredients

  • 1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup water, plus more to taste
  • 1 cup blueberry sauce

    In a small saucepan, combine the lemon juice and sugar. Warm over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the sugar has melted to form a lemon syrup. Remove from the heat and let cool.  Stir in the water. Add more to taste if you prefer.

    Pour some of the lemonade mixture into popsicle molds, filling each about ¼ to 1/3 of the way full.  Transfer to the freezer. After about 30 minutes, check to see if the lemonade is partially frozen so that you can insert a popsicle stick without it falling over. (This took closer to 45-60 minutes for me.) Insert sticks and let the first lemonade layer freeze completely.

    In a blender, food processor or with an immersion blender (my favorite option), puree the blueberry sauce.  (You can leave the sauce chunky, but I found it easier to pour into the molds after it was pureed.)  Pour a thin layer of blueberry sauce into each mold over the lemonade layer. Repeat this process a couple more times, alternating the lemonade and blueberry layers and freezing each layer before adding another. Let freeze fully before unmolding.
