B3…I’m talking berries, balsamic and basil. These ice pops have a grown-up flair to them and take advantage of the fresh strawberries that are filling up the patches right now not to mention the bouquets of basil that are available to be picked these days. Summer screams freshness and these pops are nothing if not FRESH! Day 12 of the 12 days of Summer Kickoff is sure to pack a punch of irresistible flavour!
Here’s how you make them: In a sauce pan, combine 2 cups fresh (or frozen) strawberries, slightly diced with 2 tbsp honey, 2 tbso balsamic vinegar and 1/4 cup water. Simmer until the berries are softened and then blitz them up with a hand blender. Thinly slice some fresh basil into ribbons and stir into the cooled strawberry mixture. Fill molds, seal and freeze then enjoy the perfect taste of summer cubed! These would be fantastic served in a crisp, chilled glass of proseco too! A great way to finish off our 12 Days of Summer Kickoff with Ice Pops!
I really hope you’ll give a few of these recipes a try…ice pop molds are so cheap and by creating your own pops you can furthermore create some lasting summer memories with your own family as I’ve already enjoyed doing with mine! Happy summery, ice pop filled days ahead!
