Thanks for the info, Janet. It occurred to me a little while ago that I might be able to find something similar at our local Joann's, too.

Those look good, Janet. I'd probably add some Hershey syrup to the coffee one, if I made it. I love making extra coffee in the summer, pouring it into an old glass milk bottle, and adding enough syrup to taste. Pop that baby into the fridge, my own Coffee Coolatta is ready to go. Right before I head out the door I pop a couple ice cubes into the travel mug, add some of the coffee mix, then top off with milk and/or half-and-half. Who needs $tarbuck$ or DD when you plan ahead?

When our kids were small, I used to toss chunks of watermelon or cantaloupe into the blender, whiz till smooth, and pour into Dixie bathroom cups. Although it might have been better to have a straight stick, I'd just put them in right away, sort of on an angle. The kids loved those so much I should make some just for me now. Just for the walk down memory lane...

These look amazing. Someone posted something on my facebook a few days ago about wine popsicles. I think fancy popsicles are going to be in my future.

coconut milk, recipe

Let's Make Popsicles! Summer is here - time for homemade popsicles.. Last weekend I went to a b-day bash held outdoors. I was responsible for dessert and instead of the traditional cake, opted to make an assortment of popsicles and also some chocolate chip cookies - a nice change. I have a few left (rejects for cause - crooked sticks, smudges, etc) and thought you might be interested. These were super easy to make and the flavor combos are endless. Most use coconut milk for the base as it freezes with fewer ice crystals and added plain greek yogurt gives a nice acid note to counter balance sweet. I've found that this improves popsicles that are often sort of one note wonders. Building layers of flavor is fairly easy this way. [INDENT][B]Berry and cardamom smash up:[/B] Coconut milk, ground cardamom infused into warmed coconut milk, a little honey, black berries mashed in to the mix [B]Strawberry buzz:[/B] Fresh strawberries, orange flower water, sugar to taste and lemon juice. Whirl it up and freeze [B]Coconut cream, chocolate confusion - a deconstructed mounds bar: [/B] Mix 1: Coconut cream, coconut milk, plain yogurt, vanilla Mix 2: Coconut milk, cocoa powder, pancake syrup (yes, the cheap stuff), vanilla, plain yogurt [B]Coffee[/B] - left over strong coffee, plain yogurt, condensed milk, vanilla, instant coffee dissolved to increase coffee flavor [B]Lime juice, pomegranate [/B] - not shown as they were the hands down favorite. Fresh lime juice, sugar, a little molasses, pomegranate seeds (not too many) [/INDENT] Do you make popsicles? What are your favorite flavor combos?
