Popsicle # 14: Peaches and Cream
(peeled local peach blended with sweetened condensed milk)
Delicious! Eaten with Deborah on the porch. However, it did not taste good with beer.
I recently tried to freeze sweetened condensed milk and found that it doesn’t really freeze. Maybe the sugar content is too high? It is kind of gross…but tastes good.

Popsicle with its muse.
Popsicle #11: Homemade Chai
(boil massive amount of spices including ginger, cardamon, cinnamon, cloves and black pepper, steep black tea, add sugar and milk)
Tastes like- bitter blech! Not enough sugar and the milk was probably questionable since when I went to pour it on my cereal the following morning it was seriously chunky. I was also guessing on the spices, which I probably let get out of hand.
However, Kate still liked them and ate two. Jane got through a half.
Popsicle #12: Chai á la Oregon Chai Powder
(add water to Oregon Chai Powder and freeze!)
A cheater’s way to make chai but it was tasty.
Kate eats the bad chai pop while I eat the good chai pop (behind the camera). Please note that Kate is working on her aforementioned awesome comic. It was a meta-blogging moment.
Popsicle fever has inspired Kate’s most recent comic on Zodiac and Friends. I hope that Lindsay will soon be compelled to conduct popsicle experiments in our humble abode.
Thanks to Becca for my fancy (and somewhat ridiculous) header! She also made this awesome icon of a hammer eating a pop. I like the hammer’s creepy eyes.
Popsicle #10: Watermelon Mint
(blended seedless watermelon and diced spearmint from the garden)
This was unbelievable sweet (and watery)!

Popsicle # 9: Basil Pear
(garden basil simple syrup and super ripe barlett pear)
I bought a shiny new computer because my old computer was about to be thrown out the window due to its slowness. The computer, named Eloise by my Aunt Suz, was christened by dripping a chocolate pudding and raspberry popsicle all over the keyboard.
Smitten with the Photo Booth and my popsicle.
Thermal camera and popsicle
Popsicle # 8: Chocolate Buttermilk Pudding with Raspberries
(layered homemade chocolate buttermilk pudding, cooked frozen raspberries and another layer of chocolate buttermilk pudding)
It didn’t come out looking as fancy as it should have. It was my first attempt at layers and I think the rocket pop molds can’t handle that type of fanciness. I had never made pudding from scratch before and I didn’t realize it took almost 2 minutes to make. So easy! Jane came over to experience the wilds of homemade pudding popsicles. I think the raspberry was the best party. Maybe next time I will blend it all together.
Jane is pleased.
Popsicle # 7 Mango Cherry Ginger Creamsicle
(blended mango, bing cherries, sweetened condensed milk and ginger juice)
Tastes like: Overpowering nasty spicy ginger.
I ate half of one. Kate ate a whole one and claimed to like it. I threw out the rest so I could move on to better tasting popsicle adventures.
