“Is the spring coming?” he said. “What is it like?”…
“It is the sun shining on the rain and the rain falling on the sunshine…”

The cold is a thing of past in my part of the world and we are witnessing the first glorious days of spring! Flowers bursting forth in all their colorful glory, thankfully bright golden sunshine and clear blue skies are the norm of the day, as are pretty butterflies flitting around. I for one am overjoyed at the prospect of the soon to be spring and summer. Reason? I can enjoy my favorite dessert of all time, frozen treats any time I want. I don’t want to confess but fact is come the warmer days of spring , and you might just see me do ice cream and popsicles for breakfast. Yes, I am that girl. You are with me though right?
D inherits this love of frozen treats from me,her crazy slightly unhealthy Ma. While last year I let it go with mostly shop bought popsicles, I couldn’t stop feeling guilty every time I handed her one. This year though I have decided to do the right thing and make popsicles and ice-creams at home. So brace yourself folks coz pretty soon this space will be taken over by all things frosty, cold and delicious. As much as I love the creamy fudgy ice creams, there is something about a refreshing fruity popsicle that is so much more appealing to me on a hot summer day.

These are so delicious and refreshing, like pops of freshly squeezed fruit juice in our mouth bursting forth with flavor and just the right amount of natural sweetness.Mixed fruit juice is one of D’s favorite and I love it too. But I wanted to give it a bit more color. So I made some fresh strawberry syrup and added that to the popsicles. These mixed fruit popsicles were then topped with fresh chunks of fruit like mango, green and moscato grapes, strawberry, lemon crescent, mint leaves and topped further with super food like chia seeds. Sweetened with just a touch of sugar these popsicles are tangy and sweet, refreshing without being cloyingly creamy or sweet. Best part they are hardly any calories in there. In fact its as good as drinking fresh juice, but only in the frozen form and on a stick, which lets face it , makes everything so much more fun!!
