My SuperMom friend, Michelle, tells me about her new frozen treat molds. And she made an Orange Dreamsicle Bomb Pop — the only popsicle I think I actually like. She also provides the link to Amazon…helllo, Amazon! I’m so there. And here is your link to the Tovolo shooting stars molds at Amazon. You’re welcome.
I have this gigantuous cantaloupe taking up too much refrigerator space (but cantaloupe popsicle doesn’t excite me), a thousand or so blueberries (The Hub has dibs on these), some lemons, some limes, an apple or two. Hmmm….let’s go check the freezer. Alrighty, a bag of frozen strawberries to save the day.
Into the blender:
half a bag of frozen strawberries
2 slices of cantaloupe (a really fantastic ‘loupe, btw)
juice of one lime
some water to make it slurry-up
Make yo’self a little extra. I added a smidge of heavy cream to mine. ssshhh, it was actually better with the cream
Into the molds.
5 hours later….schlurrrrp, schlurrrrp, schlurrrrp is all I hear.
Strawberry melon pops are a hit. Yay! Thanks, Applie.
Lessons learned: Don’t be in too big a rush (hahhaa, I have boys ya know) to get your pop out. Let it sit a room temp for a few minutes or run it under some warm water.
Otherwise all you get is a stick
Which actually works out OK. The boys get to try their popsicle extraction technique again, and you get stickless pops. So, take your stickless pop, mash it up in a pretty bowl
and you now have a first-class granita. Fresh mint on top of this would have been perfect. I know just where to get some very fine mint, but I fear my granita would melt before I got back.
