Fun with Fruit – Seasonal Chocolate Dipped Fruit & Popsicles
This is my favorite time of year. There’s an abundance of locally picked strawberries and cherries at the Farmers Markets. Very soon there will be: raspberries, blueberries, plums, apricots, and more… All lend themselves beautifully to being dipped in dark chocolate or pureed and made into popsicles or into an adult Italian Ice (Granita). My recipes:
Pure Strawberry – or any Seasonal Fruit – Popsicles
Simply puree the fruit (add a tiny bit of sweetener or sweet juice, if you like) and place in popsicle molds! Leave the pureed fruit a little chunky for texture. Add yogurt to make it creamier. Use a variety of fruit to create different colors and flavors.
