The Popsicle That Refreshes
Well, the heat of summer has finally hit. And we want refreshing foods and treats. Don’t think that popsicles are just for kids. Here are some great recipes that work just as well for adults. They’re so good you’d better hide that last one!
Triple Berry Popsicles
2/3 cup sugar
1 cup blueberries
1 cup strawberries, hulled and sliced
1 cup raspberries
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
Put sugar and 1/3 cup water in a small saucepan and bring to boil over high heat, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Set aside.
Combine blueberries, strawberries, raspberries (or any combination of berries you prefer) and lemon juice in a blender and purée until smooth; about 30 seconds. Add 1/3 cup simple syrup (the water and sugar combination) and blend just until combined. (Save remaining syrup for another use, such as sweetening iced tea.)
Transfer purée to popsicle molds and freeze 4 hours. Insert popsicle sticks and freeze an additional 4 to 6 hours, or until frozen solid.
Lemon Ice Pops (dairy)
1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1 cup half-and-half
¾ cup lemon juice (preferably fresh but not absolutely necessary)
3 cups coarsely crushed graham crackers
Whisk together the milk, half-and-half and lime juice. Pour into popsicles molds and freeze for 2 hours. Insert sticks and freeze for an addition 4 to 6 hours. Unmold and press each side into crushed graham crackers, coating completely. Serve immediately.
1 can (14 ounces) coconut milk
zest of 1 lime
2 limes, juiced
¼ cup confectioners’ sugar
¼ cup shredded coconut
Puree all ingredients together. Pour into small popsicle molds or 3-ounce paper cups; insert wooden popsicle sticks. Freeze several hours, or until firm.
