Frozen refreshing treats scream summer. While ice cream has the hearts of many, popsicles have stolen mine. When I lived in Atlanta, my favorite place to get a popsicle was King of Pops. I share credit where credit is due. This now massive frozen treat business introduced me to the pairing of herbs and fruit. Sweet, savory and oh so satiating at the same time. Genius. I challenge you to pick you favorite summer fruit and pair it with a wild herb combo from your garden. The options are truly endless and you can experiment all summer long. Bonus: It’s also a great way to utilize produce before it goes bad!
3 Cups Peaches (Fresh of Frozen Will Work)
Juice and Zest of One Lime
1 Tablespoon Chopped Fresh Basil
2 Tablespoons Honey
A splash of water
In a food processor or blender, combine all ingredients until smooth and creamy. Once combined, pour evenly into popsicle molds and freeze overnight. To pop out of mold, run under warm water for 30 seconds then lift popsicle out of the mold. Enjoy immediately before melting in the summer. Or enjoy in the winter outside with no risk of melting!
