Sometimes life presents you with sweet dilemmas. I've read people on Twitter ask what to do with too many figs, peaches, or tomatoes. If only I had those worries! Then last week, my friend Cindy gave me a bunch of Italian plums that were super ripe.
At first, I thought of making a pie, but I really don't need the extra calories. Next idea was a plum chutney, but that required chopping, browning and stirring, and time was not plentiful last week. So at the end I decided to make popsicles!
6 plums, halved, pit removed
juice of 1 orange
juice of 1/2 lemon
1) In a food processor puree plums with orange and lemon juice.
2) Give the mixture a taste: add more lemon juice or orange juice or sugar if you wish. I thought mine was perfect.
3) Fill the popsicles molds and stick in the freezer (I had enough for 4 popsicles and a "shot" of juice).
This is an unbelievable healthy, naturally sweet and a fun snack or even dessert?
If you like this idea, try blueberry pomegranate and mango melon flavors! Please chime in with your favorite combos!
