Well hello there.  Now that the temperatures are soaring, I wanted to pop in quickly to bring you something creamy and sweet.  Something that is sure to help keep you cool and all smiley this summer.  But before we get into these Roasted Blueberry & Speculoos Cookie Yogurt Popsicles I wanted to talk a little business with you.

Saveur Magazine has just opened up nominations for their 2017 favorite food blog awards.  If you have enjoyed your time at The Road to Honey, I sure would be tickled pink if you could pass some love along and nominate The Road to Honey for the Best Baking & Sweets blog.  It’s really simple to do and the whole process should take you less than 5 minutes.  You can find the link to the nomination form HERE.

Now that we have that out of the way, I wanted to give you the scoop on what I’m up to at this very moment.  I am currently sitting in a hotel in Utah waiting to join up with an owl research project.  Weeeeee!  How exciting is that?

You may or may not know this about me, but I am very interested in conservation and make it a point to join up with at least one conservation project each year.  My most recent projects were Penguins in Patagonia, Black Rhino Research in Kenya, & the Cheetah Conservation Fund in Namibia.  I hope to share photos from each of these trips and tell you more about them in future blog posts so be on the lookout for those.

As for this project, well. . .we are going to be studying nesting habits of owls and the use of nest boxes as replacements to natural tree cavities which, by the way, are becoming scarcer due to deforestation and climate change.  The project I will be participating on is focused on Flammulated (see these little guys HERE) and Saw Whet Owls (be sure to check out these cuties HERE) in Snow Basin, Utah.

These owls are the cutest little things you ever did see and I can’t wait to see them with my very own eyes.  We will be doing much of the research at night. . .because. . .you know. . .that’s when these little guys are active.  These conditions are not ideal for photography so I’m not sure that I will have many photos to share especially since I decided to pack light and left the tripod at home.

Anyhow, I will be sure to keep you posted on any good stories (hopefully not too good though because there are mountain lions and rattlesnakes in these parts).

In the meantime, I have these Roasted Blueberry & Speculoos Cookie Yogurt Popsicles for you.  It’s been 100 degrees here in Salt Lake City so to say I could use a couple of these delicious beauties is an understatement.

The good news is they really are a cinch to make.  Simply drizzle some honey onto a handful of blueberries, add a pinch of salt and roast until the blueberries soften and release their vibrant, sweet juices.

For the irresistible cookie crumble, just crush some Speculoos cookies, graham crackers, or whatever cookie tickles your fancy.  Mix in some brown sugar and a little melted butter to hold it together in little clumps of sweet goodness.

And lastly, mix some protein packed Greek yogurt together with powdered sugar for added sweetness, a little milk to thin out the yogurt and make it easier to spoon into the molds, and some vanilla to add an even creamier sensation.

Throw all of this into a popsicle mold, paper cups, yogurt containers, whatever you have on hand (see HERE for ideas on alternatives for popsicle molds), pop them in the freezer and. . . Voila!!!. . .  you have yourself a protein packed treat that you can easily enjoy for breakfast, a snack, dessert or any time you need to cool yourself down.

Now, I dressed some of my popsicles up with melted white chocolate and a sprinkling of crushed freeze dried blueberries.  You can do this if you want or you can keep then au naturel.  But If you do decide to give a little extra chocolate bling to your popsicles,  be sure that the chocolate is cool enough that it doesn’t leave your popsicles a big melty mess.

Well, it’s time for me to snuggle with some owls.  I’ll see you when I get back to the home front.  Oh. . .and I may be sharing some videos on Instagram stories.  So be sure to pop in on my Instagram every now and then.

XOXO-

    I bet these treats could impress even the owls you’ll be researching! They might be spinning their heads a little too much knowing you are on the team:) Definitely nominating you. Love that you roasted the bluberries to amplify the flavor, but my favorite here are the butter brown sugar soaked cookie crumbles mixed into the yogurt. Also yogurt is my everything. Grew up eating it and still do daily. Good luck with the nominations & winning:)

      I absolutely adore roasted fruit Gloria. As a matter of fact, I like to top my oatmeal with it because the natural sugars in the fruit add just enough sweetness.

    This hurts my head looking at your photos. They’re the prettiest things I’ve ever seen. Way too challenging for me to ever make. You’re so talented. On a side note, I finally convinced my mother, who lives in Park City, to get an air conditioner. Let’s just say that she’s been using it, and it’s usually 10-15 degrees cooler up there than in SLC, as you know. So sorry. Just hope you have an AC.

      Awww. . .thanks Thao. I absolutely adore roasted blueberries. As for the owls, it seems that the nest boxes really are doing the trick. Many of them are currently occupies by owls. . .and it is not uncommon to see three babies close to fledging…very good news!

      Fantastic Nicole! This sounds perfect for you then. If you don’t have Speculoos cookies. . .you could use graham crackers instead. Also, the recipe made 6 popsicles in my molds; however, if your molds are bigger you may get less. There is such much variability in molds. Anyhow, keep me posted on how they come out.
