This weekend I finally had time to stop at Walmart and get some popsicle moulds. It is perfectly in time as well as the heat wave doesn’t seem to be letting up soon. I love the heat to a certain extent and seeing so many people make all sorts of popsicles, I’ve been wanting to give it a swing also. I sat around for a little bit trying to see what to use.
Here’s how it turned out:
So I have a general idea has to how to do it. No specific measurements.
Here is what I used:
around 35 blueberries
1 can (250mL) Fruit Punch Sparkling Juice (President’s Choice)
splash of Gallo Family Vineyards White Zinfandel Rosé Wine
I have to say that they looked really awesome. Even when I pulled it out, they looked pretty good as well. I was thinking that they looked a whole lot like a slush popsicle.
That all took place last night. Tonight I finally got around to trying it out. Believe me, it was very icy. The juice was there and it tasted fantastic. Frozen blueberries though, aren’t really my favorite. So maybe next time I’ll use something a bit sweeter so at least after being frozen, it still tastes rather decent.
Anyways, first time experiment was pretty successful. At least it came out in one piece and stayed that way the whole time I was eating. The mix of fizzy fruit punch and a splash of wine tasted fantastic and it did its job to cool me down. 🙂
Now to figure out how to make it less icy/slush and more like an actual fruit popsicle. Any ideas or experiences to help me out?
