While the rest of the country may be settling into fleece jackets and baking loaves of pumpkin bread, I’m making popsicles. How’s that for living in a place with no real seasons?
Kelley sent me the link to this recipe for creating tasty fruit pops. Essentially, it’s this:
- 2 cups fresh fruit
- Throw them in a food processor with 1 Tablespoon super fine sugar, 1 teaspoon lemon juice and a pinch of salt.
- Then blend it all together until completely smooth.
- Pour and freeze.
- Makes 4 popsicles.
I added vanilla yogurt to make pretty layers. I also used store-bought popsicle molds but you could do as the recipe suggests and use candy cups instead.
Popsicles melting in the hot sun. Cleaning sticky hands in the hose water. That’s autumn in these parts.
