Popsicle #19: Coconut Rice Mango Pudding
(coconut milk, cow milk, sushi rice, maple syrup, vanilla, sweetened condensed milk and diced mango)
It was ok but it didn’t taste amazing. I wanted it to taste like mango sticky rice from Vientiane. To thank Mom and Dad for driving up my new dining room table, I fed them these pops.

Popsicle #18: Watermelon Salad
(blended watermelon, diced spearmint and crumbled feta cheese)
Yup. It was disgusting. However, the idea had potential.
Popsicle # 17: Pineapple Basil
(basil infused simple syrup blended with pineapple chunks)
A solid and delicious combination. Pops were eaten before embarking on an epic car trip to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.
Popsicle # 16 Dark and Stormy SNAP Style
(ginger beer and SNAP!)
With dreams of popsicle potential in mind, I was super excited to try Art in the Age’s new ginger liquor, SNAP. It is based on a local Pennsylvania Dutch recipe and comes in a pretty bottle.
To keep it simple, I did a basic dark and stormy cocktail combo but the results were too strong to eat in pop form. Most of the popsicles didn’t freeze hard enough to be pulled out of the mold. I have seen popsicle recipes for boozy popsicles before but I must have gotten the proportions wrong.
I have not given up hope for SNAP’s popsicle future since SNAP by itself is quite delicious. Got any suggestions?

Popsicle # 15: Rocky Road Pudding Pop (RRPP)
(make chocolate pudding and add chopped walnuts and marshmallows leftover from last camping trip. pick dirt stuck to marshmallows leftover from said camping trip off before adding to pudding. freeze.)
The popsicle looked unfortunate but it tasted good. This fact was confirmed by the popsicle’s consumers Kate, Lindsay, Lydia and Jane.
