Hold onto your sticks everyone, because it’s Popsicle Week!
This is one of my favorite weeks of the (virtual) year, actually, because in addition to getting to make slash eat delicious, frozen treats, we also get to mix and mingle with a huge community of bloggers with popsicles on the brain. I mean, have you seen this list of genius?!? So much goodness over there. We’re going to need more popsicle molds.
In previous years I’ve tried to mix it up, tackling everything from Date Shake Pops to Dark Chocolate Pudding Pops to Honeydew Agua Fresca Pops (not to mention the Watermelon Limesicles and Blackberry Root Beer Float popsicles that have shown up around these parts), but this year I wasn’t sure exactly where to go. Creamy or fruity? Chocolatey or chock full of coconut?
The answer, dear friends, is all of the above.
I settled on a creamy, coconut-milk-based, syrupy-roasted-strawberry and handful-of-white-chocolate-chips-for-good-measure-filled popsicle. They are PRETTY GOOD, if I do say so myself. They’re just subtly sweet, but packed with intensely strawberry-ish strawberries, creamy coconut flavor and a hint of brown sugar and white chocolate. Get into it!
I think they’d be Calder-approved, too, if he could, you know, eat things. He mostly stared at them in confusion, if we’re being honest, but I think I detected a glimmer of pop-citement in those baby blues. Gotta teach them young, right?
Happy #PopsicleWeek, everyone!
