So, I am in the middle of a super frantic mode currently. My trusty computer got infected by a virus, which resulted in the performance being really slow, almost impossible to use. The first thing I did when that happened was to check my "Pictures" folder, and they're gone! Basically, all of my data was gone, what a nightmare! I am trying to find help and crossing my finger that the data can be recovered, but we'll see... :(
In the midst of all that this past weekend, I spent some time freezing raspberries, making fruit salad and yogurt sherbet for my niece's and nephew's dessert, and the last thing I did was making brandied cherries and raspberries! It wont be until 3 months from now that they will be ready to use, but I can't wait!
Before the computer crashes, I managed to type this draft of post. Here is another summer treat I made a while back, while we were still in "real" summer time. I've never made popsicles before, despite it being really fun and easy, but this year, I was always in the look for something quick and easy dessert to make.
Popsicle is a fun treat, and not to mention healthy too for the kids after school or after an afternoon in the park under the sun. My nephew Tobias, which is only 1.5 years old (almost 2 now), couldn't get enough of it. He cried for more everytime he finished one portion.
I have a few events coming up, and that means I will be drown in sugar constantly, but in the meantime, at least for another week, I get to enjoy my day and make whatever I want in the kitchen. It is still going really slow for one easy dessert to make, but I'm trying my best.
White Peach and Raspberry Swirl Popsicles
125g fresh or frozen raspberries
Cook the raspberry and the sugar until boiling. Strain the mixture to get as much liquid as possible
White Peach Yogurt Layer
2 peaches (about 200g), cut up
175g whole milk yogurt
Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth
- Prepare your popsicle molds
- Pour a little of the raspberry mixture in the bottom of the mold, then add some peach yogurt mixture.
- Continue layering until full
- You can swirl it using a toothpick or a skewer if you want to create a swirl pattern
- Put it in the freezer until solid.
Raspberry layer - use the leftover from the white peach popsicles
175g pineapple puree
sugar (I forgot to measure it. Put enough sugar to sweetened it, the amount depends on the sweetness of the pineapple)
Blend the pineapple and the sugar until smooth. Strain.
Mango Yogurt Layer
175g whole milk yogurt
50g mango pulp
Blend all ingredients in the blender until smooth
- Pour some mango yogurt layer in the bottom (that will become the top of the popsicles)
- pour some pineapple layer
- Freeze for a few minutes until the pineapple layer set for a bit
- Pour a thin layer of raspberry layer
- Freeze until solid
