Yes, a popsicle recipe at the end of September. Call me crazy. I'm trying to come to the terms with the changing of the seasons as St. Louis has decided it's time for the blasted humidity and excessive temperatures to hide away until next summer. While I'm sad to say good-bye, there are lots of things to look forward to this fall. For instance, I have three weddings to attend this October, a fun review and giveaway scheduled for the blog (from CSN...have you heard of them? They have over 200 stores online...everything from dining chairs to wine racks to baby toys), and then a marathon to run in less than two weeks! I'll give you more information on the giveaway from CSN in the next few weeks!
Anyways, I made these several weeks ago but kept forgetting to take a picture of them and post the darn thing. When I finally did take the photo, I realized 2 of my 4 popsicles were missing. Hmm, wonder who THAT culprit could be!
My Blog Spark and Yoplait sent me a set of popsicle molds along with a coupon for some a free Yoplait Whips yogurt (yum!) and a cute insulated lunch bag. I was eager to make some fun popsicles and decided some of my POM juice sent to me would be a perfect ingredient.
These popsicles are just blended fruit and juice...meaning you can eat them for breakfast! The frozen banana helped dull the rather tart pomegranate juice and these were like eating a smoothie in solid form. While I cannot wait to try some other varieties of popsicles (fudgesicle anyone?!), these were a yummy and easy first go-around!
