How to Make Your Own Raspberry Creamsicle Ice Pops
If there’s one summer treat we can’t bear to ever give up, it might be the ice pop. Well, it’s kind of a toss up between the ice pop and the margarita, which is why we had to write a Watermelon Margarita Ice Pop recipe last August.
While we still love our margarita ice pops, our new natural artisan flavors have opened us up to other possibilities in the kitchen. This week, we put our Creamsicle “Type” flavored extract to the test, and invented a new kind of ice pop that’s reminiscent of the childhood classic, but takes the traditional flavor in a new direction.
If you have ever once enjoyed a Creamsicle, then do yourself a favor and pick up a container of our Creamsicle “Type” extract for flavoring your ice cream, popsicles, tea, cocktails, or whatever else comes to mind!
Amoretti Raspberry Creamsicle
- 1 (12 oz) bag of frozen raspberries, defrosted
- 1.5 oz Creamsicle “Type” Artisan Flavor
- Juice from 1 lemon
- 4 tbsp simple syrup
Add all ingredients to a blender, and blend until you have a super fine liquid. You might have some foam on top of the mixture. Give it a minute to settle, and/or scrape it off; your ice pops won’t freeze well otherwise.
Pour the mixture into ice cube trays, ice pop trays, or into freezer-friendly cups. Allow the ice pops about a half hour to become semi-frozen. Then, add wooden sticks and allow the mixture to continue freezing for 3-5 hours.
When it comes to our flavored extracts, a little bit goes a long way. In fact, 1.5 ounces of our Creamsicle “Type” Artisan Flavor is equal to about 18 ounces of fruit purée. As you experiment with these new products, you’ll find your own mouthwatering, perfect ratios. Be careful not to overdo it. You can always add more extracts for flavoring, but you can’t take them out.
