It was unseasonably warm in San Francisco, (don’t make me quote Mark Twain) so I ran out and bought a popsicle mold. If I lived in a place with (hot) summer weather I could probably live on popsicles alone. There are so many variations: sweet, savory, boozy, creamy, that it would take at least a couple of scorching hot summer months to get through all of the possible flavor combinations. I made greek yogurt + strawberry + blueberry puree popsicles from this recipe by Chobani. I had some blueberry puree left over so I added a handful of basil leaves, more blueberries and lemon juice to the food processor for blueberry basil pops. When they were ready, I headed straight to the park to read, soak in the sun and eat popsicles. It’s these little things I enjoy. Other great popsicle recipes from Mark Bittman here.
