Are you enjoying ice pop week? Have you entered to win your own ice pop kit yet? I’ve enjoyed coming up with all these different flavour combinations to share with you. First we had Blackberry Key Lime Yogurt Pops, then kid-friendly Pina Colada Pops, and yesterday was those decadent Chocolate Dipped Peanut Butter Popsicles. My daughter has declared today’s Strawberry Rhubarb Pops as one of her favorites, but really, I think she’s having a hard time deciding. She says that the taste like strawberry rhubarb jam. I’d say that’s a pretty good comparison. These pops are really simple to make, bringing together the great flavours of summertime strawberries and young, crisp rhubarb. The balsamic vinegar is the kicker, adding some nice depth to the flavours. Now I wonder what flavour tomorrow will bring?
- 1 1/2 cups chopped rhubarb
- 1 1/2 cups chopped strawberries
- 1/4 cup water
- 1/3 cup granulated sugar
- 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
- 1 can (355 ml) Sprite, 7-up, or club soda
- Place the first 4 ingredients into a medium saucepan. Simmer over medium heat stirring occasionally, until the rhubarb is tender. Allow to cool to room temperature.
- Spoon cooked mixture and balsamic vinegar into a blender. Blend until smooth. Stir in the Sprite or 7-Up.
- Pour into ice pop molds or paper cups. Insert sticks and freeze for at least 4 hours, or overnight.
- Run molds briefly under warm water to release pops.
Have you entered to WIN the Summertime prize pack so you can make your own frozen pops too? I’ve loved seeing the flavour suggestions from you guys, keep them coming! Some great inspiration for future ice pop recipes.
One winner will win a Norpro Ice Pop Maker, 200 Wooden Treat Sticks to get you going, and either “Top Pops” by Emily Zaiden, a book with 55 all-natural frozen treat recipes OR “The Everything Guide to Living Gluten-Free” written by me.
I bought myself these items, and will provide them to ONE lucky winner in either the US or Canada. I’ve begun using the ice pop mold a few weeks ago, and LOVE it. I love the classic look, the lid that hold the wooden sticks in place, and the size of the pops, similar to store-bought pops. Plus, since the pops use wooden sticks instead of plastic ones, you don’t have to wait until you’ve eaten them all before making another batch. The book, “Top Pops,” contains 55 simple recipes for you to make frozen treats at home. Not only is there a variety of recipes, but they can also serve as a great starting point for creating your own recipes. You have the choice of either the “Top Pops” book, or the book that I wrote while sitting beside the pool last summer, “The Everything Guide to Living Gluten-free.”
To enter, visit THIS POST and use the Rafflecopter after the recipe.
*Open to residents of Canada & the US. Enter each day to win, contest runs from 7:00 a.m. Monday, June 24th until 11:59 p.m. Sunday, June 30th. One winner will be selected using random.org.
