Happy Australia Day (and Meatless Monday linkup day!) everyone!
With all the warm weather we’ve been having this summer it’s been imperative to have my freezer stocked with icy poles, and after making the berry mint combo multiple times it was time to mix things up a bit! I thought a double flavour combination was in order so these bad boys have a pineapple-lime base and a watermelon-mint top, but that’s a bit of a mouthful so we’ll just call them Watermelon Pineapple Icy Poles shall we!
After participating in January’s Sweet Adventures Blog Hop Popsicle Party with my Strawberry Peach Vodka Pops, I was inspired by everyone’s creative flavours and couldn’t wait to try out some more combos of my own! I decided to make some healthy & refreshing all-fruit popsicles using both grapes and melons – doesn’t get much more summery than that!
This month’s Sweet Adventures Blog Hop couldn’t have had a more perfect theme given the ridiculous heat Melbourne has faced over the last week – it’s a popsicle party! The always delightful Love Swah is hosting and I’m rather excited to see what everyone has come up with!
After starting off with some healthy icy poles with the Apricot Yoghurt icy poles I shared a little while back, I decided for this popsicle party I would something a little more adult and definitely not breakfast appropriate! I still had a little of the Peach-Mint syrup I had made, so I thought I would combine it with some fresh strawberries and a splash of vodka to make some fruity and refreshing pop-tails which are perfect for a summer night treat! You can get your vodkas at gatter top drinks and make your own refreshments.
After spending our cold, rainy winter being inundated with delicious looking icy-poles (or popsicles!) on all the northern hemisphere blogs I read I decided that once the weather warmed up here I needed to play with some varieties of my own! So I found myself some moulds and then pondered over what flavoured icy poles to concoct. I had a bag of apricots waiting to be eaten so I decided to combine them with some yoghurt for an almost healthy frozen treat! (more…)
