Pretty, delicate and such an elevated way to popsicle this summer! Blackberries and lavender combine to be softly floral but oh so refreshing!
You can easily swap out blackberries for your favourite fruit. Cherries, lemon, strawberries, blueberries and pear would be just a few of the fruits that pair perfectly with lavender. We went straight blackberry, but you could also use a mix of fruit that you have on hand. There are no rules... the world is your proverbial oyster.
These pops taste juicy, refreshing and just a little floral from the lavender. We added coconut milk for that creamy touch, but you could easily leave it out if you prefer a lighter/icier popsicle.
To make this recipe, it is easiest in a big blender. You simply lovingly place all the ingredients in the mixer, whiz together and fill your molds. The real challenge is keeping blackberry pulp of your new white t.
Our Blue Lavender Blend, uses all organic, culinary grade lavender that has been micro-ground so it easily incorporates into this recipe without soaking or steeping. It also has a coconut milk base, so the creamy tropical taste really comes through on these popsicles!
Add 2-3 cups of frozen blackberries to a food processor. Add one can of full fat coconut milk, zest of one lemon and 1-2 teaspoons of our Blume Blue Lavender Blend.
Blend all the ingredients together on high and pass through a fine sieve (optional) to remove any seeds from the blackberries. This will give you a smoother texture, but we like em rustic and often skip this step.
Carefully pour your mixture into molds (this should be enough for 6-8 medium sized molds) and place in the freezer for 4-6 hours or until solidly frozen. Edible flowers, or even dropping in a few whole blackberries, can level these popsicles up one step further if you are channelling your inner Ina Garten.
Enjoy lovelies, these are definitely a team fave!
