I don’t know about anyone else in New York, but I was really into last week’s heat wave. I’m a warm weather gal. I’ll take 90 degrees, over 20 degrees any day of the week! I cranked up the air conditioner, and broke out my flip flops and sandals, some of my favorite summer dresses, and best of all, my new popsicle mold.
Last week officially marked the start of popsicle season!! I’m calling it now, this is going to be the summer of the popsicle. I’m in love with my popsicle mold, the same way I’m in love with my doughnut pan. Maybe even more! I just stocked up on 500 popsicle sticks and can’t stop thinking about all the delicious frozen treats coming my way!
Last weekend also marked my first long bike ride in a reeeeeally long time. Despite heading out early in the morning, it was blazing hot and the sun felt relentless. On more than one occasion I was sure my skin was melting off….I also thought my quads were going to explode and that I could eat an entire watermelon. That gives you a little idea of where my head was at. I didn’t spend my entire ride in crazytown though. I also spent a good chunk of that ride thinking about popsicles flavor combinations.
Determining how to kick off popsicle season was a no-brainer. Last month I received a set of super handy summer fruit tools from Oxo, and have been dying to try out the mango cutter! This little gadget splits mangoes in half like a dream. I love mangoes, I really hate cutting them….but thanks to the smart folks at Oxo, that job just got a lot easier!
These popsicles! They’re cool, creamy and absolutely refreshing! The combination of sweet mango, tangy Greek yogurt ginger play together oh so well. And, just like your favorite flip flops, these popsicles are a summertime must-have!
