While spending days studying for exams I needed to have a break. Since it’s still searing hot outside and a bit stuffy inside I wanted to make something refreshing and yet super simple. So I watched videos of how-to-make-frozen-desserts and it dawned on me to try my hand at some frozen desserts. I looked into the freezer and saw that there wasn’t that much space to work with, but I moved some things around and saw that a popsicle mold would fit in the tiny back corner.
Here are the ingredients needed for this recipe:
- 1 cup heavy whipping cream
- 3-4 Tbsp. honey (I used orange blossom honey)
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 10-12 frozen strawberries (slightly thawed and sliced)
Step 1: Fill the popsicle molds with the sliced strawberries evenly
Step 2: In a large bowl, combine the heavy whipping cream, honey, and vanilla until soft peaks.
Step 3: Spoon or pipe the whipped cream into the molds.
Step 4: Use a chop stick or skewer to help blend the strawberries and cream.
Step 5: Top off the popsicle molds with remaining whipped cream.
Step 6: Freeze for 6 hours or overnight. (Side Note: I only froze it for 4 hours so when removing from the mold the handle kept coming off because the center was still soft, so I had to dip it into hot water to have the entire popsicle release from the mold.”
(Side Note: After freezing it over night, I recommend dipping the bottom with the fruit in hot water to help loosen the popsicle from the mold. Try not to warm up the cream, that part will come out easily.)
