Cans Get You Cooking Giveaway and Review: Blueberry and Pear Yogurt Pops

This is a sponsored post on behalf of the Cans Get You Cooking program.

From now until the end of this year as a CanBassador I will be sharing Cans Get You Cooking with you. This is a program dedicated to sharing the message that the ironclad technology of cans seals in freshness, flavor, nutrition and goodness so that you can create meals you feel good about serving and that your family will love. I love them because they are also convenient and quick.

The can is one of the best ways to get food from the farm to my family’s table. The canning process locks in foods’ freshness, flavor and nutrients at the peak of ripeness, just hours after picking. It’s field to sealed and ready for you to serve up!

There quite a few canned goods I buy already for my pantry and I'll be sharing about some of our favorites along with recipes and giveaways for you. Be sure to check out Cans Get You Cooking on Facebook to learn more about this program.

Today I am sharing a recipe with you using Del Monte canned pears. With Summer peeking right around the corner, I'm sure we'll all be making popsicles all the time. I found this easy recipe that combine some of our favorites, greek yogurt, blueberries and pears. Blend them all up and pour into your favorite molds and enjoy later in the day. (I found my molds on Amazon, love them but I need more, so I also had to use plastic cups)

Blueberry and Pear Yogurt Pops
adapted from Recipe.Com 

1 15.25 oz. can Del Monte pear halves in heavy syrup (you'll use 3 pear halves), reserve 2 TBL of syrup
1 cup frozen blueberries
2 cups vanilla honey greek yogurt

Drain the pears, reserving 2 tablespoons of syrup. Place three pear halves, blueberries, reserved syrup and yogurt in a blender or food processor. Cover and mix until it's smooth. Divide the mixture evenly among ice-pop molds. Freeze until firm, 4 to 6 hours or overnight. When ready to serve, run popsicle molds under cool/warm water to loosen the mold. Enjoy!

(this gave me about 3 3/4 Cups of mixture and made me seven pops from my molds)

my store carries quite a variety of canned Del Monte products. Today, I needed pears.

I used my regular popsicle molds and then used cups & sticks to make more.

We loved these blueberry & pear pops!
