Finally, we have internet again! Sorry, readers, that I have not been able to post for several days. I am in the Philippines, and since the last typhoon, the internet has been down. But we are sound and safe, and now the internet is working again. Praise the Lord! In about two years we will move back to a western country again. However, it is a really educational experience to move around the world and explore new cuisines while learning how to cook familiar recipes with new ingredients. So today, I am going to give you these tropical juice pops – I hope they will bring you a burst of exotic flavor from a tropical island!
These are no ordinary juice pops – the fruity ice packs a delicate treasure of creamy chunks ... and the tempting combination of refreshing tropical juice and sweet banana will please young and old alike. They are a must to try this summer, and you have no excuse, since they are easy enough for a kid to make.
For these pops, you can use popsicle molds or just plain cups with a teaspoon or craft stick in. I use cups. Slice a banana and put it in the cup(s). Stick down a teaspoon (handle up) or craft stick into the banana slices and make sure it stands straight and secure. Then, pour in some tropical juice till it nearly covers the bananas. You don't want to cover the bananas completely, as too much juice will cause the bananas to float and the teaspoon to fall. Now, when the teaspoon is steady, pop the pops in the freezer. Tomorrow, you will have delicious tropical juice pops! If the pops are stuck, just run the cups under warm water a few seconds. The pops should pop right out of the cups. Enjoy!
I will also make up for the last days with a lot of tempting recipes and fun how-tos during the next week, so don't forget to check back soon!
