Why is it that ice cream takes four hours to freeze but only four minutes to melt? Taking photos of ice cream is sort of a challenge, to say the least. You have about three minutes before everything turns saucy.
Popsicles. The heat made me do it. I had three hours of mowing ahead so I knew I would need something cold and refreshing. I don’t have an ice cream maker but I have plastic popsicle molds. So I whipped up these Strawberry Cream Popsicles. They are refreshing, fruity and perfect for summer.
Yields Makes 8 Popsicles
1 cup Strawberries sliced
6 tbsp Powdered Sugar
5 tbsp Plain Yogurt
1 cup Whipping Cream
1. Puree strawberries with 1 tbsp of powdered sugar. Set aside.
2. Whip the cream. Add yogurt and 5 tbsp of powdered sugar.
3. Layer the popsicles by adding cream, then a layer of the pureed strawberries and another layer of cream. Insert a popsicle stick and swirl gently to combine slightly.
4. Insert popsicle sticks and place in the freezer for at least 4 hours. To remove from molds run warm water for a couple of seconds and they’ll pop right out.
