hello! hi! let's cool off with whole30 popsicles!
because, um. they're SO PRETTY.
did you expect more from me?
okay fine. i'm obsessed with how GOOD they are too.
it's sort of like a berry sangria pop – ish (without the wine).
they're like perfectly tart, with a hint of fruity sweetness. the berry flavor is just brought out by the passion tea.
soooo. i decided to make these because it was crazyyyyy hot two weeks ago and i couldn't handle the heat any more. but they're like SO easy that i'm going to want them all the time.
all you have to do, is blend up the berries with some passion tea and then freeze that into layers!
you can do this two ways.
- make these into layered pops by blending each berry with some tea separately. ORRR
- just blend them all up together to make your life super easy.
i love them layered and i love them all mixed together. because i'm the worst and can't make a decision for my life.
thissssss is my new favorite popsicle mold.
i love that it makes popsicles that are so classic. but also, i love that it doesn't fall apart and make my life miserable by spilling all over the freezer.
(not that that EVER happens to me… because my freezer is DEFINITELY super organized and not filled with random crap that just falls out every time i try to get something… ever.)
okay fine. it happens to me.
but i'm working on using all the crap i have in the freezer this week. i literally didn't buy any meat from freshdirect this week because i have so much stuff frozen that i neeeeed to use.
i seriously try and hoard stuff in my fridge/freezer as if i still live in the woods, 20 minutes from the nearest grocery store. I LIVE IN NYC. MY GROCERY STORE IS A BLOCK AWAY. WHY AM I HOARDING CHICKEN LIKE ITS Y2K?
none of the things that happen in my brain make sense.
i'm telling you. i'm all over the place all the time. i can't wait to edit the gopro footage i'm shooting for this whole30 and see how scatter brained i am… gonna be SUPER FUN.
because doooooo you see the colors??? i can't deal with how pretty these are.
i shared these with frankie's brother and sister (and her best friend) when they came over for dinner last weekend and they all loved them!
and frankie obviously loves them or i wouldn't be sharing them with you guys…
but after i shared them with his fammmm he was like “um are you gonna make more? cause i have none now…”
i think he forgets how much crappppp i have to make/cook on whole30.
he also wanted nut bites. and sausage. and eggs. and … meals.
ITS A LOT. i'm just sayin.
but it's worth it.
these are worth it.
if not because you want to be happy/healthy… for the gram.
- 8 ounces strawberries
- 6 ounces blueberries
- 6 ounces blackberries
- 2 cups cold tazo passion tea
- If you want to make layered pops, blend each berry with 1/2 cup passion tea in separate batches (i.e. blend the strawberries with 1/2 cup tea, blend the blueberries with 1/2 cup tea, blend the blackberries with 1/2 cup of tea). If you want to just do full triple berry pops, blend all the berries with the tea.
- Spoon one layer of fruit mixture into a popsicle mold and freeze for 20 minutes or until the layer is solid. Repeat the process until the mold is completely filed. Freeze for another 2 hours, or overnight.
- Fill the popsicle molds with the berry mixture and freeze for 3 hours or overnight.
- To remove the popsicles, run the bottom of the molds under hot water to loosen!
ultimate brain freeze!
