Now, some may use the argument that if it's been packed away for over a year and you haven't used it, you don't really need it. WRONG! It's been packed away for a year because although we moved from a house with a teeny-tiny kitchen to one with a roomier, small kitchen...I still don't have the storage space aside from an array of "storage" boxes stashed in the basement that I aspire to. I totally need that awesome little tea service I found at Goodwill 3 years ago. I absolutely need the set of 7 onion soup crocks with lids, thank you very much that I haggled from a yard sale 5 years ago. And YES, I definitely, without a doubt, need the popsicle molds that have only been packed away for a little over a year.
Your honor, I'd like to submit evidence of that fact by entering this recipe that I've had my eye on (off and on, really) for the past..ooooohhhhhh...5, maybe 6 months. I am NOT a packrat! I think it was back in the March issue of Whole Living body + soul that I saw a recipe for some Berry Buttermilk popsicles...and in a happy twist of fate, I ran back across it just when I needed it most- high Popsicle-season! I just halved the amount of berries of my choice and substituted peaches for that amount...because I thought it sounded good.
Buttermilk n' Fruit Popsicles
adapted from a recipe in Whole Living body + soul March '10 issue
yield: 10-12 popsicles, depending on size of your mold
1 1/2 cups cultured Buttermilk
3/4 cup cranberries, fresh or frozen
1 or 2 peaches, pitted and chopped to equal 3/4 cup
1/4 cup honey
Purée all of the ingredients in a blender until smooth. Pour into popsicle molds and freeze. If you're inserting your own sticks, do so after 1 hour of freezing...let freeze at least another hour or so until firm.TKW and let the kids eat Popsicles for Breakfast...why not!?
I almost forgot to mention that one of el gato's decided to puke all over the cover of said magazine last night...while it sat ON THE KITCHEN TABLE. Did I mention I don't like recycling certain magazines...I keep them for all eternity. Ugh. I knew you'd be interested...
