When I first bought these popsicle molds in Ikea, my dad had a great laugh. He's used to me and my mom buying all sorts of weird things for home, but this just seemed too much for him. He told me he was sure that I would never ever use them and they would just catch dust in my storage. Well, you know me, I love myself a good challenge, and I love nothing more than proving my dad wrong, so here I am, with my very first homemade popsicles. Watch out, Dad!
I got a batch of black currant on the farmers' market last Saturday, but unfortunately they turned out too acid to eat. And since I hate wasting food, I whipped up this easy popsice recipe:
Black currant popsicles (for 6 popsicles)
* 150g black currant
* 5 tsp unrefined sugar
* 3 tsp plain white yoghurt
* 1 tsp sugar
1. In a saucepan, squash the black currants and combine with unrefined sugar. Cook on low heat for 10-15 minutes. Let cool down completely.
2. In a small bowl, combine yoghurt and sugar.
3. Fill the popsicle molds (3/4 of height) with black currant mixture. Fill the rest with yoghurt. You can also alternate layers of fruit and yoghurt (in this case, you'll need to prepare more yoghurt with sugar).
4. With a thin-bladed knife, swirl mixtures together in an up-and-down motion.
5. Insert popsicle sticks and let freeze overnight.
