New Pop Flavor: The Kickstarter

1 like

To celebrate our success here on Kickstarter, we have created a new pop flavor just for the wonderful Kickstarter team and our awesome, awesome backers. 

Made from dried fruit and ingredients you can get year-round, it's the perfect sunshine-y sweet antidote to your winter blues! And oh yeah ~ how could it not? ~  it's got one helluva kick! 

THE KICKSTARTER

INGREDIENTS

  • 3/4 cup hot water
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup unsulphered dried apricots
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (or less, or ancho pepper, for less of a "kick") 
  • 1 cup whole milk, organic yogurt
  • 1/4 cup cold water
DIRECTIONS

1 - Dissolve honey and cayenne pepper in hot water. 

2 - Soak apricots in honey-cayenne syrup until "rehydrated", around 3 hours

3 - Place apricots and syrup in blender, add 1 cup yogurt and blend

4 - Add more yogurt and/or small amounts of cold water until mixture reaches desired flavor and consistency (use your tastebuds, that's what they're for!)

5 - Freeze in pop molds for 24 hours and ENJOY! That's it! 

We hope you enjoy this recipe and that it encourages you to play more in your kitchen in 2012! The possibilities for frozen goodness are endless. 

It's amazing to have your support, and we look forward to seeing many of you enjoying our pops this Spring! 

You're all as sweet a honey, 
Liz, Lilia, and Little Bee

      These are delicious! I did use less pepper for my kids, but they still had some bite to them, and the kids loved them, as did I. Thank you for the recipe! Wishing you much success with your venture!
