Pomegranate Popsicles

The weather here today in LA is perfect.  Our Augusts are usually nicer than September as the beginning of school often coincides with a furnace-blast heat wave.  As kids, we had the double whammy of wool Catholic school uniforms and classrooms with no AC.  Brutal.

school-uniforms To cool her kids, Mom froze cubes of cranberry juice for snacks.  Five melting little girls (yup, three more than this pix) bearing no resemblance to the fresh ones sent off to school that morning needed serious chilling.  Mom would sit us outside with a cranny cube in a paper towel and, ahhhhh.  Most fun was sucking the color out, plus red-stained lips and tongues.  Almost makeup.  Good times.

Flash forward to my gift shipment of POM Wonderful pomegranate juice.  POM wants bloggers to write about their juice (no fee involved, full disclosure here), so they asked if they could send me some.  They did it the right way by not asking me to write about it… good PR people know to just provide product and support info, if I have something to say, I will.  Useful data on health benefits for cardiovascular, prostate, ED (you know what that is), antioxidant potency was included.

POM is unadulterated juice from a funky big red healthy flavorful fruit.  Soooooo much flavor that after sharing a bottle, Larry and I agreed it was a tad overpowering for our tastes.  So now what?  Well… sunny Sunday here.  Lazy hazy backyard reading day.  Let’s freeze it.

Sit your little guys (or big guy) outside with a napkin to catch rich red drips.   No actual recipe here, just pour some into a plastic container, prop a stick upright in the middle (I used binder clips) and freeze overnight.  You will agree with me that this is one splendid all-natural fruit juice popsicle.

Oh my!

I am actually going to leave my house right now to pick up some of this at the store to make it tonight! (Talk about impulsive!) 🙂

That sounds wonderful!

I also heard a good tip for popsicles – use soda in liter bottles which has gone too flat to drink (isn’t that all of them after about 2 days?) and freeze in cups with sticks. Works great with root beer, orage soda, haven’t tried ginger ale yet but sounds intriguing…
