I bought a couple of popsicle trays today. My folks are coming into town, and my mom is a huge popsicle fan. She's the anti-popsicle snob, though. She likes the kind that come 64 to a box -- where the flavors are red, orange, green, and purple.
But anyway, I'm going to try to make some yummy ones out of real food.
What I've come up with so far:
I'll puree the strawberries and add some lime juice, plus a little bit of sugar. Will wait to see if they need any liquid. If so, it'll probably just be water.
I've got some frozen key lime juice from when I bought waaaaay too many to make a pie. Going to add some chopped fresh mint and grated ginger. I think I'll have to stir them as they freeze to keep the mint from settling.
Bought some slightly overripe mangoes. I think I'll do like the strawberries -- puree, possibly with water, then add lime and sugar as necessary.
Any other ideas or recipes? Anyone see any problems with the above?
