Popsicle # 24: Banana Bread
(thawed out, super ripe bananas blended with a few tablespoons of the syrup leftover from making poached pears last week.)
Tasted like banana bread and it wasn’t drippy because this popsicle was mostly banana. The poached pear syrup was full of good spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, cloves, etc. My frozen bananas were overtaking the freezer and this proved to be a good way to get things under control.
Popsicle # 23: Lemonade & SNAP
(lemonade with a shot of SNAP!)
A second attempt at popsicle with alcohol. It was better, definitely edible and frozen this time around. However, it wasn’t amazing. I think I’ll stick to my alcoholic drinks liquid and my popsicles dry.
Maybe the alcohol in this popsicle influenced Alison's cheesy smile.
Popsicle # 22: Pineapple Cilantro
(blended pineapple chunks and diced cilantro)
I used to think I hated cilantro because I was influenced by severe cilantro haters I used to live with (Lydia and Abby.) But my taste buds found their own way and discovered their true love for this herb.
Popsicle #21: Spiced Rice Pudding
(take leftover coconut rice pudding from popsicle # 19 and add raisins, peaches, a lot more sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamon and cloves)
Much better than the first try.

Popsicle #20: Blackberry Peach
(blended blackberries, peaches and a smidgeon of maple syrup)
