Popsicles Make Summer More Fun!
I’ve made quite a few varieties but have to confess that it’s hard to beat iced coffee, almond milk, and a splash of vanilla syrup. It makes a Heavenly latte popsicle.
I’ll add more recipes in the coming days, but here’s one you’re sure to love. It’s from Terra’s Kitchen (Fresh Meal Delivery Service) and the popsicles are almost too beautiful to eat.
Healthy Ginger-Cantaloupe Popsicles
3 slices of fresh ginger
1/4 cup sugar
1 ripe cantaloupe
Sliced strawberries (optional)
Popsicle forms and popsicle sticks
In a small sauce pan, add the sugar and 1/2 cup water over medium heat. Cook just until the sugar has melted. Remove from heat and drop in ginger. Set aside until cooled. (Remove ginger when ready to use!)
Slice cantaloupe in half and scoop out seeds. Spoon cantaloupe flesh into a blender. Blend until smooth.
Add just enough of the cooled ginger syrup to sweeten as desired. Save the remaining syrup for another use.
Pour into popsicle molds and freeze overnight. For a variation, push a few sliced strawberries down into the popsicle molds before freezing.
