yeah yeah…still ice pop crazy. especially since my favorite bloggers are posting stuff like this…see here and here.
i really can’t help myself. especially because fruit right now is just crazy good. sweet strawberries….blueberries to die for. mangos that drip down your chin. apricots you just can’t resist.
there’s been some complaining in the house though, i mean, cause, you know, i can’t get these made quickly enough. it takes hours to freeze but minutes to throw together (way to many hours to freeze, did i mention that?).
and then let me just put this out there…i just adore coconut milk…in ice pops, in soup, in noodles, in curry, in whatever. creamy, delicious, pairs well with almost everything. am i ranting?
coconut milk is really the perfect fit in this pop. a great accompaniment to fresh sweet fruit and yes even chocolate (those will be coming soon).
anyway, sigh, enough talking. homemade in minutes. make. them. now. please. and then thank me.
