Strawberry Lemoncello Popsicles {Summer No Bake Party}

Let’s face it; it’s hot.  Nobody wants to turn on their oven in this kind of weather.   Have no fear, this recipe for Strawberry Lemoncello Popsicles will hit the spot. It’s easy, it’s fast and it’s delicious. Trifecta! I am so excited that Regina from Specialty Cake Creations is hosting a Summer No Bake Party over on her blog from June 16th through the 21st.  Over the next week she will be sharing some awesome summer recipes where there is no oven involved! That’s right you can make yummy desserts and save energy all at the same time.   During the summer I love all things frozen. Frozen yogurt, frozen popsicles and even frozen cookies.  Oh yes, frozen sugar cookies are so good!  I am delighted to share my Strawberry Lemoncello Popsicle recipe over at Specialty Cake Creations today.

Regina has started a Pinterest board for the Summer No Bake Party.  You will want to be sure to follow this awesome board filled with great ideas when you just don’t feel like turning on the oven.  Regina’s Crepe Cake with Strawberry sauce is on my to do list.  I will leave you with one quick tip about popsicle molds. The longer the mold the trickier it can be to remove the pop. Try spraying a light coat of coconut oil on the mold. This will help you remove the popsicle without it breaking in half. Or you can try my new favorite find: Mastrad Silicon Ice Pop Mold.  I love them. No mess, no breakage and easy to clean.

Enjoy.

Tangy Grapefruit Yogurt Popsicles {Recipe}

Now back to those tangy grapefruit yogurt popsicles. I decided to think outside the box and be a little daring when I developed this recipe. Normally, I cling to traditional flavors but why not take a chance, right? Have you ever been to Disney World? There is an old famous restaurant called the Brown Derby. They recreated the famous Hollywood restaurant. One of my favorite desserts there is the Grapefruit Cake Recipe.  I have been dying to recreate it for a blog post but have not had a chance. Then I had a wild and crazy idea; maybe I could make popsicle play on the old dessert recipe.

Grapefruit yogurt popsicles

Buttermilk and yogurt  are high in potassium, vitamin B12, calcium, riboflavin and a good source of phosphorus.  Did you know buttermilk is also easier to digest? I decided to combine the nutrient rich benefits of buttermilk alongside the raw milk pro-biotic potential of Greek yogurt to make this healthy treat. 

Grapefruit Yogurt Popsicles

Tangy Grapefruit Yogurt Popsicles {Recipe}

  • 5 oz. Greek Yogurt
  • 1 oz. Buttermilk
  • 2 large grapefruits
  • 6 tbsps. organic sugar
  • 3 tbsps. water

Directions:

  1. In a small bowl combine the Greek yogurt and the buttermilk. Set aside.
  2. Juice each of the grapefruits and strain the liquid through a strainer. Twice.
  3. In a small sauce pan heat the grapefruit juice, water and sugar on low until the sugar is all melted. Approximately 5 minutes.
  4. Do not let the liquid boil.  Remove from heat and allow it to cool.
  5. Combine the grapefruit juice mixture and the dairy mixture with a whisk, till it is completely smooth.
  6. Fill each popsicle mold with the mixture. Fills approximate 8 to 10 popsicles depending on the size.
  7. Freeze for 6 hours and enjoy!

Grapefruit Yogurt Popsicles

I don’t know about you but I have had trouble with popsicle molds. A lot of times my popsicles get stuck or break as we are trying to get them out of the mold. We tried warm water and letting the popsicles sit, but nothing worked.  The other day when I was at Sur La Table, I saw a product that looked a little bit intriguing.  A company named Mastrad developed a popsicle mold with a silicone holder that is easy and quick to remove. The other feature that I love is the domed cup. The drips end up in the cup and not on your clothes. Finally a popsicle mold that doesn’t break the popsicle!

Simple peel off the silicon liner and you are good go! Enjoy and don’t forget to enter the dairy recipe contest! I can’t wait to see the cool summer recipes that you are cooking up.

 

Dairy Free Butterscotch Sauce Recipe

Dairy Free Butterscotch Sauce

If you have never made a butterscotch sauce from scratch you are missing out! I am so excited to be blog contributor over at Around My Family Table. Becoming a contributor has become the perfect opportunity to stretch myself baking allergy friendly desserts. Gluten Free, dairy free and egg free desserts can be very challenging. But it gives me a wonderful opportunity to explore different ingredient options. It’s interesting while developing this recipe I had countless flops, frustrations and moments where I wanted to quit. If the recipe had been for my own blog post I am sure I would have given up. But there is something about a deadline on another blog that kept me forging ahead and I am so glad I did.

Dairy Free Butterscotch Sauce

While you can use vegan butters for the base of a dairy-free butterscotch sauce, I found that it gave the butterscotch a weird after taste. On the other hand coconut oil is the perfect base for this rich and luscious butterscotch sauce. While it takes some time to make, it is well worth it. I paired it with vanilla bean coconut milk ice cream. Yum!

My first blog post that I shared at Around My Family Table was a dairy free, egg free and gluten-free espresso and sea salt cookies. They are not overly sweet and pack a punch of espresso, so my advice don’t snack on them late at night!

Wendy’s blog is a great resource that shares a wealth of knowledge.  My recommendation is to check out her summer grilling series that has just started. One of my favorite recipes by Wendy is her awesome guacamole recipe.  If you would like to find out more about Wendy from Around My Family table she has plenty of social venues!

Shop Crystal Faye Recipe Card Giveaway!

Once upon a time I used to have stacks of recipes sitting in my kitchen drawer. One morning in frustration I decided the madness needed to stop. It was time to get organized.

Thank goodness one of my favorite client’s has a wonderful online boutique called Shop Crystal Faye.  I decided I shouldn’t keep this gem all to myself;  it’s time for a recipe card giveaway so you can have them too!
