who doesn't love a popsicle?

Okay. I just had to share our favorite new obsession. I first saw this pop maker when Martha posted it. We used it a little last summer, however, never finding the perfect "recipe". I played around a little with a recipe I found in "body and soul" (I think), changing it a bit, and found one we all love. It makes a perfect amount that fits into the 10 molds. Oh, and I must admit the metal top is a little tough to get off. But totally worth it. (Just run hot water over it.)
1 1/2 cups vanilla rice milk::1 banana::1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen berries (we like a mix) and 1/4 cup agave syrup. Puree in blender until smooth. Pour mixture into popsicle molds and freeze.
Have fun.

Those look great! One of our old stand-bys is really simple: fresh OJ, plain yogurt, a splash of vanilla (you can water it down a bit, if it seems too thick). Tastes sort of creamsicle-ie.

I have a new book called Jam It, Pickle It, Cure It which has some cool sounding different recipes, too. Yum.

Yummy - these look so delicious!! Thanks for sharing your recipe. Happy Summer!

Seanna Lea said...

Very cool. It's only a few more weeks until National Ice Cream Day, which I'm definitely looking forward to.

Vanessa/NessieNoodle said...

oh YUM!
I will have to give this a try. Will honey work instead of agave I wonder?

Tanya said...

Yum! I was just thinking this afternoon about the pops I have to make stuff in - will surely try your recipe.

Stay cool!

So good to know! Thanks!

Jess said...

Thanks for the recipe, that looks delicious!

MadMad said...

Oh, yummy - those sound delish. I was just at the T-store today, too. Got myself a cute picnic basket for the beach. But I suppose I could go back...

Jessica said...

Homemade popsicles are my summertime luxury--yours look so tasty!

Shannon said...

We love to make popsicles here too! Our recipe of choice for the moment is a banana or two, a ripe peach or nectarine, a big handful of organic blueberries and apple juice.
I've been thinking about doing something chocolate. Any ideas?

Angela said...

Ooohhh! That is mouth watering!!!

Eileen said...

Yummy, Leslie! We're gonna have to try this out this summer. Have fun at the "yarn" (yawn!!!) convention this weekend. We are getting ready to take the big historical va-ca to Gettysburg on Sat. and Sun. Tell Bob if he gets bored this weekend, pop the kids in the car and meet us. John will be the Louisianan with the LSU purple shirt and light in the loafers polka dot shorts!

Julie said...

I have got to get one. yum!

I am seriously going to have to get some of those Popsicle molds. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

Poshyarns said...

Your recipe is so much more exciting than mine, I need to get much more adventurous.

Kristyn Knits said...

They sound perfectly delicious!! How fun and healthy! Thanks for posting all the little details!

Hilary said...

YUM! They look delicious AND nutritious! Thanks so much for the recipe. My grandma used to put yogurt into dixie cups, put a stick in, freeze, and peel off the cup for frozen yogurt pops. I think she did it so we'd have something more healthy than ice cream bars, but that Yoplait has a lot of sugar in it! Anyway, I can still remember the texture and flavor...one of my favorite memories of childhood summers.

With the heat, this is one pretty good solution! Lovely!

VeganCraftastic said...

Yum, that sounds awesome!

ali@skeinsherway said...

Ooh, we love making popsicles here! I like that that popsicle maker makes 10 at a time, unlike the 4 pc. ones that I have... though I do like the reusable sticks/handles with the little sippers on them for the youngsters who can't eat them before they melt! :-)
Your recipe sounds yummy! I've never thought to use rice milk in something frozen, but I have had Rice Dream ice cream so I guess it would work pretty well!

Now I need something cold :-)

Nicole said...

Looks so yummy ! And at 8.5 months pregnant popsicles are all I want! I'm making these for sure!

Renna said...

Thanks for the recipe! Yours is the 2nd blog I've read in 5 minutes sharing popsicle recipes. I must buy some molds, as I'm anxious to try theirs and your recipes. I discovered agave syrup in my supermarket several months ago, quite by accident. It is my new favorite sweetener. :-)

Here's a link to the site with the other popsicle recipes, in case you're interested: http://ihavetosay.typepad.com/randi/2010/06/homemade-is-better.html (this isn't a spam, just thought you might want to see the recipes)
