Balsamic-Roasted Blueberry Chia Popsicles
Yield: 6 popsicles
Active Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 7 hours
Melt coconut oil in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add in blueberries and sauté to blister in the oil. Add in 1 tablespoon honey, coconut sugar, and balsamic vinegar. Stir and let reduce slightly. Stir in black pepper and salt. Set aside to let cool.
