starsicles

We decided that it was high time for more popsicles and made some pomegranate yogurt popsicles based on The Kitchn’s recipe.

This is what ended up working for us:

1 cup of Greek yogurt (we used Fage and Voskos)

1 tablespoon of maple syrup

1 teaspoon of lemon juice

½ cup of POM Wonderful pomegranate cherry juice

1 teaspoon of lemon juice

Mix the first three ingredients in a bowl, then mix the last two ingredients in another bowl.  Alternate pouring each mixture into popsicle molds or ice cube trays, swirl with a toothpick and insert popsicle sticks into each.  Freeze and enjoy on a hot summer day like the ones we've been having!

Needless to say, the starsicles were thoroughly enjoyed by a certain Avery.

caramel apple bar

Today's food bar is a caramel apple bar!  This would be great for a kids' birthday party or a fun get-together.  Caramel apples make me think of the fall but we enjoy them any time of the year!  This post makes me want to run over to Whole Foods right now in fact, to grab one! For your caramel apple bar, you would need Granny Smith apples, sticks, a good recipe for caramel and toppings (the possibilities are endless!).  Oh, and maybe some pretty cupcake liners to hold the apples?
