Can you believe that it’s almost August 2012? Soon it will be Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and Christmas.
Anyway, while summer lasts, I wanted to share a popsicle recipe with you. I grew up with a lot of popsicles in Malaysia. Back home in Penang, we could buy really cheap, colorful, and exotic-tasting popsicles that feature the abundant fruits found in Penang. Fruits such as mangoes, longan (dragon eye fruit), lychees, rambutan, etc. are used to flavor the popsicle. They are always tasty and beat the scorching heat.
This longan, mango, and pomegranate popsicle is a combination of some of my favorite flavors. I made them over the weekend and Baby G (who is now 22 months old) really liked it. He kept on saying “more, more.”
For the stay-at-home moms, try this recipe and enjoy mother-and-kid bonding, sharing a popsicle before summer ends. If you have an Asian supermarket where you live, pick up a can of longan, lychees, or rambutan to flavor the popsicle, I am sure your kid will welcome the new taste and texture of these exotic fruits.
