Summer Pops

Today's forecast is hot and steamy... and I cannot think of anything else I want more than how much I'd like to have a popsicle {ha!} maybe coconut or pineapple flavored.


Last Christmas I asked Santa for a Zoku {oh so cute!} but somehow he forgot how much I'm going to use it this summer... until then I will have to be happy with some really good recipes, very cute molds and some delicious flavors!


You have to give it to Martha and her fool proof recipes... I love how refreshing strawberry and watermelon are on top of being naturally sweet and have an amazing shade of red.


I love food that has a twist on them and the combination of lavender and blueberries is quite ideal... I can only think how many other berries I could use in this recipe!


And of course, my favorite coconut! Nothing like the taste and smell of coconut to remind you of a hammock in the beach listening to the waves breaking... Yum!

Have a fantastic day and enjoy a nice treat today!

  4. This is an idea I definitely have to take advantage of this summer.
    Lovely and fresh!

    Quite the opposite of my morning warm lemon juice.

  5. There's a pop place in NYC (People's Pops, I believe) and another one here in San Diego (Viva Pops, maybe?) that both have some of the most interesting flavors. And my favorite part? The flavors change with the season. Love that. Sadly, it's not quite warm enough for pops here yet.
