HAPPY 4TH OF JULY!
I've wanted to make my own frozen creations for quite some time now. While I really want to pull out the ice cream maker, there just isn't quite enough room in the freezer to do so. Hopefully we'll get a deep freezer soon and then I won't need to worry about space anymore! But since I can't make ice cream, I decided to make the next best thing...popsicles!
99% of the time in the summer I prefer a fruit flavored popsicle to ice cream. Its just fresher and lighter. Which is exactly what I was craving when I came across this recipe. Even though these are made with milk, I decided to give them a shot because I had all of the ingredients on hand.
Berry White Popsicles
Source: Taste of Home, June/July 2012
- 2/3 cup chopped berries
- 2/3 cup whole milk
- 1 tbsp. honey
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
1. Whisk together the milk, honey and vanilla until combined. Add in the berries. Pour the mixture into popsicle molds and freeze for at least 4 hours.
While these were good and satisfied my popsicle craving, the milk made these really rich and the berries weren't particularly sweet. I want to play around with this recipe some and see if macerating the berries first will help with the sweetness and if using 1% milk will take away from the richness.
