Do you like popsicles?
I love, love, love them.
‘Cause they spin my head right round, …right round.
And if something makes my head spin, I heart it endlessly.
In fact, pops might be the greatest invention of the humankind ever, I think (a proper science investigation is needed here).
I love the juicy ones and the creamy ones, as well – my favorite flavors being… hmmm… strawberry (yum), peach (yippee), apricot (oh, dear), lemon (mmmmmm…) and caramel (instant-coma) and vanilla (yo, man) and let me stop myself right here, because I’m afraid that what I’m possibly doing right now is naming all the existing flavors…
Once I even attempted to make Cookie Pops – that was so much fun!
Anyway, just recently I stumbled upon a homemade-popsicle idea somewhere in the deep web.
And that made me think, OH… DID that make me think about all the homemade-popsicle related stuff.
Questions like: ‘How exactly?’, ‘Can I put a glass into a freezer?’, ‘What kind of stick’ – buzzing in my head constantly.
Last Sunday was the day when I was shown a sign – A MIGHTY SIGN.
It stroke me right there in IKEA, while I was looting their kitchen department, wearing a multi-orgasmic expression on my face.
A popsicle mold? Like REALLY? I didn’t know you existed? I didn’t know about you. Can you forgive me, please? Can we be friends? From now to infinity… and beyond, please?
I really am a lucky person, so lucky…
So immediately, after we’d arrived home, I jump-started the action.
I poured in two containers of plain yogurt into a food processor.
Then I added these wonderful, gorgeous canned strawberries.
Then some sugar and lemon juice to taste.
Little bit of mixing ensued and our homemade strawberry yogurt was born.
This mixture might not have been aware of the fact that it was going to be turned into something really amazing.
Things like this had never happened in our household before.
Then I went on and spooned the mixture into the lovely molds.
I put the mold into its stand.
And then I stuck the handle in.
There were six molds in one package.
And I filled them all and sent them to my freezer for a 24-hour life-changing trip.
We just can’t get enough of them.
I did a little research on homemade ice lollies which eventually transported me into the state of utter bliss with all those amazing ideas running through my head.
I’ve chosen one particular pop idea to round off this sweet pop post with…
(Isn’t that just the perfect way to end a post with? I’m now considering ending all my future posts that way.)
