So, my neighbors, friends and family are always giving me free, homegrown food, what a drag, right?
This time my it's neighbor's abundant nectarine tree. I have a full grocery bag full of nectarines, and I'm looking for a cause worthy of these carefully picked nectarines. Popsicles! er... Creamsicles! These come out a lot like Push-Pops, but hang on, I've got a picture...
but look at this ingredient list!!!! (Yes, four exclamation marks. I could've gone for more) I mean these are meant for children, right? Growing children, who need sustenance. If this doesn't make the foodie a la Jamie Oliver (watch that video, so much passion) in you cringe, then I'm not sure what will.
Yes, these are in my fridge. I guess I've turned a blind eye, because I just... love them? Or maybe there's some fancy chemical in there that makes my brain think I love them. I'm done ranting about Push-Pops... for now, but they're definitely not food.
You know what is though? These nectarine creamsicles that will take you about 3 minutes prep time. If you want to make an array try out these lemonade creasicles, too!
While these might not be the single healthiest thing you've ever heard of — they do contain only three ingredients, which should inspire more confidence than, well I said I was done ranting, but you know.
Here's what you'll need:
- 4 nectarines - blended, mine produced about 1 1/2 cups
- 1 cup of half and half
- 1/2 cup of Raw Honey
- Popsicle mold - I have this one
- Popsicle sticks
So these do have added sugar, from honey, but at least the main ingredient is fruit. Also, I stand by raw honey as a health food.
- Mix all ingredients in a blended, and pour into your popsicle mold.
- Set in the freezer to set for 30 minutes before adding the popsicle sticks.
- Freeze for six hours - overnight.
Now you, my dear are done! You've made the right decision!
P.S. Someone told me these tasted like a 50/50 bar from when they were a kid. I haven't had one, but I guess they're a lot like creamsicles.
