Strawberry-Rhubarb Ice Pops(Popsicle)


Summer's here and so is the craving for frozen delights.The all-natural fruit Ice Pop with no artificial colors is the best thirst-quenching treat for sizzling summers.The Ice pop molds are easy to spot in stores at this time of the year.Not to worry,if Rhubarb doesn't suit your taste,make the Popsicle exclusively or with a combination of your favorite kind of berries.

(For 4 molds )

Ingredients

8-10 medium strawberries, hulled and chopped
1 cup rhubarb,chopped
1 tablespoon white sugar
2 tablespoons water

Method
Simmer the berries with rhubarb and water until very soft about 8-10 minutes.Puree in a blender or processor.Cool a little.Pour in the molds.Freeze for 6-8 hours.
To get the Popsicle out,dip or run under warm water,and slowly pull them out.


Strawberry-Greek Yogurt Popsicle.
Use 2 tablespoon of Greek yogurt(like Oikos) or just strain the yogurt in a muslin cloth for an hour.Prepare the puree as in the previous recipe,cool completely in fridge for 2-3 hours.Then mix the yogurt thoroughly in the chilled puree and pour in the molds and freeze.

These frozen delights are my entry Home Made #5 Ice cream and Strawberry Feast.

Be informed!
Beware of those vibrant artificial food colors often used in Ice pops,very pleasing for the eyes but nothing like it when its gets in your body.Sensitive kids prone to allergies and those with behavioral problems should totally avoid foods with synthetic colors.

What a beatiful creation Yasmeen! Feel like picking it up. :-)

True Yasmeen! Summer wasn't the greatest time ti India plus I was visiting Bangalore with a image of cool and beautiful city which it was 18years ago! :D

But I was there to see my best friend who is very ill in fact, so made a decision on the spot when I heard from her and flew out. Glad I met her and family, it was a great trip although a bit scary to see B'lore now!:)

Have a great Summer, see you in Fall.

Perfect for summer :) Looks yum!!

Bharti said...

Its so funny- I see so many rhubarb recipes now days but they all begin with an apologetic tone. Hehe..hey I haven't eaten rhubarb in over 10 years now..and I don't feel inclined to. Is that wrong? As a foodie, I should be more experimental. Perhaps one of these days I'll be brave. The popsicle does look refreshing.

rahin said...

strawberry n rhubarbs ...definitely a winning combination ...

notyet100 said...
