This low-fat mania extended into the frozen dessert selections. We never had real ice cream, always frozen yogurt or rainbow sherbet. My brother and I also ate our fair share of Fudge Pops and Flinstones Push Ups, which by the way should never be consumed once you're past the age of 12. A few years ago I tried one and nearly spit it across the room. This is what I would get absolutely giddy about during the summer??
By the way, I know I talked about said Push Ups before, but I figured it needed repeating.
Oh wait that's right...I do.
Actually that's totally false aka thanks Cleveland restaurant that served me ginger soup so ridiculously spicy I couldn't eat more than 3 spoon fulls. Double thanks for not noticing.
So with summer upon us, forget that familiar yellow box and try your hand at making your own popsicles. There's nothing to it, especially now that I finally have a freezer that keeps food frozen.
What a concept!
Strawberry Ginger Peach Popsicles
1 container of strawberries, hulled and quartered
1 cup frozen peaches
3/4 cup sugar
2" knob ginger, finely grated
1/2 t. vanilla extract
1. Combine all ingredients in a medium saucepan over medium low heat.
2. Heat the mixture until the strawberries and peaches begin to break down and the mixture is syrupy.
3. Using an immersion blender, blend the mixture so it is most uniform with a small amount of peach and strawberry chunks remaining.
4. Pour mixture into popsicle molds and freeze for at least 4 hours, but preferably over night.
5. Use hot water to loosen the popsicles from their molds. Find a hot day and enjoy!
