Pinspiration of the Week: Homemade Popsicles
Nothing says summer like food on a stick. Especially if that food is frozen and sweet
2 cups red plums, chopped
2 Tbsp. honey
2 Tbsp. lemon juice
2 Tbsp. water
1/8 tsp. ground cardamom
1 cup plain Greek yogurt
1 tsp. agave syrup or honey
1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1 vanilla bean, seeds scraped and pod discarded
1. In a heavy bottom saucepan, combine plums, honey, lemon juice, water, and cardamom. Cook over low heat for 20 minutes or until the plums are very soft. Remove from heat and cool to room temperature. Set aside.
2. In a small bowl, combine Greek yogurt, agave syrup, vanilla extract, and vanilla bean seeds. Stir to combine. Set aside.
3. Transfer the cooled plum mixture to a blender or food processor and puree until very smooth. Using a fine mesh sieve, push the liquid from the plum mixture into a bowl and discard solids.
4. Layer spoonfulls of plum into popsicle molds, followed by the yogurt mixture, repeating until the molds are filled. Use a skewer to swirl the two mixtures together. Insert sticks and freeze for at least four hours. Un-mold pops and serve immediately or store in a zip top bag in the freezer with wax paper in between pops.
