Nothing’s better than an ice cold popsicle on a hot summer day, am I right? My popsicle obsession started when I made Unicorn Smoothie Pops last summer, and this season I’ve taken them to a whole other level with these Boozy Lavender Blueberry Creamsicles!

If you follow my blog, then you may already know I love the flavor combination of lavender and blueberries. It just works. I’ve made lavender blueberry lattes, cocktails, ice cream and I have plenty more recipes up my sleeve. I knew that if it worked as a cocktail, it could definitely work as a popsicle!

I chose Empress Gin to add to these spiked Lavender Blueberry Creamsicles because I love the deep blue indigo color (from butterfly pea blossoms) of the gin and the flavor is so smooth. I knew that the added alcohol would incorporate well with these frozen desserts without making them taste too boozy.

To get the wonderful lavender flavor, I use a lavender syrup and lavender extract. Lavender extract is my latest culinary discovery and I love it! It’s so easy to use and a lot less mess with the lavender buds, however if you only have culinary lavender on hand, that works just fine as well (see my tip below).

If you’re looking for a sweet summer treat that’s dreamy and delicious, then this Boozy Lavender Blueberry Creamsicle recipe has your name written all over it. Even my husband loves them - and he is the pickiest eater! He’s usually a chocolate and donut only type of guy. Don’t drink alcohol? No problem. Omit the gin and these popsicles still taste incredible. Get yourself a popsicle mold and get going! I promise you’ll love these.

*Tip: If you don’t have lavender extract, steep 2 tablespoons culinary lavender in very warm coconut for twenty minutes. Strain and cool.
