My daughter gave the idea of making these popsicles !!! And they are super healthy. Its been hot and humid in Delhi and anything comes out of refirgerator to much/drink is heavenly.
My lil one wanted something really cold and off late I have been making veggies juice for her rather than the store bought concentrated fruit juice.
There is no perfect recipe for this as such, just churn out the juice of any veggies you like and freeze them in the popsicle mold. Amount of sugar to be added or no sugar depends on you. I used cold fruit press to extract the juice and they were so damn sweet that not even one crystal of sugar I added to it. Just dilute it as per the thickness that you feel is right with water and just freeze.
I chose to make beets, carrot and sweet lime because its colorful. Next on my list is spinach! So go ahead squeeze the freshness from your fruits and veggies and be healthy…
Thank you for browsing my blog, do share your feedback and enjoy the summer !!!
It is so extremely HOT here and you can think of nothing other than cool juice, water ….Its like anything out from refrigerator the best!!! I am constantly making icecream as homemade is always better than bought from shop. My daughter is too fussy about eating figs (fresh or dried) and I am on my constant try to make her eat. So came up with this icecream idea as she cannot say NO 🙂
Fresh figs are so heavenly to eat by itself. Figs when roasted with honey ,it gets caramelized and the your kitchen smells divine. You could just eat them with a scoop of vanilla icecream !!! But I had to go ahead with making fig and honey icecream. I did not make egg custard for icecream base but instead went in for using custard powder. Making an egg custard always gives amazing super smooth and silky icecream, which I will post the recipe very soon but as of now let’s go in for little easy way.
Full cream milk 500ml (2 cups)
Fresh cream/whipping cream 200ml
Fresh figs 200gms
Brown sugar 1tbsp
Custard powder 3tbsp
First roasted figs with 2 tbsp honey and 1 tbsp brown sugar in oven until caramelized for 15 minutes at 200 deg C. Let cool.
In the meanwhile prepare the custard.
Take 3 tbsp milk to mix the custard powder in a bowl. Keep aside.
Pour remaining milk in pan . Once it comes to boiling stage add the custard powder and milk mix and keep strring until the milk thickens and coats the back of spoon.
Turn off the gas and sugar let cool.
Churn the roasted fig mix in the food processor, it will be thick paste to loosen up you can use little of custard mix.
Once the custard mix is cool add cream,remaining honey and mix well.
Lastly add the fig paste and mix well. Let cool overnight in refrigerator.
Pour custard into the ice cream maker and chill according to your manufacturers instructions.
Enjoy your super delicious icecream. Thank you for stopping by to browse my space. Please pen your feedback.
