How’s the weather? Here in Portland, it has been so WARM — with temperatures up in the 90s! We have been slowly melting in the studio this week. So we thought it was about time we made some refreshing herb-infused fruit popsicles for a cool treat here in the studio.
Being the adventurers that we are, we love these herb-infused berry popsicles. The sweetness of the strawberry mixed with the peppery taste of basil and the tart of lemon is divine. The second, our blackberry, lime and sage popsicles, are so aromatic, they’re like a taste of fresh air.
A Refreshing Summer Treat
As always, I like to use simple, natural ingredients in my recipes. For our herb-infused fruit popsicles, we used fresh local berries along with sage and basil from my exploding herb garden and ripe juicy lemons and limes. For the base, we used an agave simple syrup that we infused with each herb. Once the flavors have joined, simply mix in either the lemon or lime juice for the popsicle base.
I arranged the berries and chopped herbs into the popsicle molds and then poured the flavorful juice into each form. Make up a batch and keep them in the freezer for hot hot days or pile them high on a bed of ice to serve at a summer birthday party, BBQ, or lunch. If you are looking for more summer dining inspiration take a look at last week’s mini blueberry cheesecake recipe, our Swanky S’mores party post, or our delicious summer champagne cocktail post — all so tasty! Enjoy! ~ Lia
P.S. Many of you are asking for the molds I used for these herb-infused fruit popsicles. I bought the molds at World Market, though I am guessing they will be gone soon, so I also found another source for you on Amazon.
