Taking Pleasure Seriously

4 Recipes For Gourmet Popsicles You Have To Try This Summer

THE TIME – August, the peak of summer.

THE PLACE – Eilat, Israel.

THE GOAL – Safely getting through another summer with a temperature that wouldn’t shame hell.

THE SOLUTION – 

Cool off during the summer with one of these homemade, healthy & easy to make gourmet popsicle recipes

As a borned and raised Jerusalem girl  who moved to Eilat four years ago, I already understood that the best way to cope with the heat of Eilat is to always stay near the air conditioner. Know what? I want to sharpen the last sentence – whoever lives in Eilat knows that you should leave the house as little as possible during July and August. The heat is one thing, but you don’t even want the comfort of the cool sea or the malls, because that's where the whole country is. During my first three years in Eilat, I tried to give sunbathing on the beach during the summer months a chance and every time I was burned again. I’m proud to say that I’ve finally learned from the mistakes of the past – my foot hasn’t touched the shores of the Red Sea since last June! See you on Mosh’s beach only after the holidays… 😉

One of the things that bummed me out about staying away from the beach near my house during the summer months was the popsicle issue. What can I tell you, if there’s a place I allow myself to “sin” with popsicles, it’s at the beach. It’s another way to keep your desired body temperature when you’re out of the water, and when the choice is between a fattening option {ice cream} and a less fattening option {popsicle}, I usually go for the cherry or melon ices. When the visits to the beach were abandoned in order to stay sane in the hot summer, the longing for those popsicles remained…

I decided not skip the pleasure altogether, and if I’m stuck in the house with the air conditioner, then I should at least try to concoct a few unusual recipes for popsicles, that are less common than those found at the beach. The base I chose for all the ices is JUMEX‘s natural fruit juices. Not only do they not contain preservatives or food coloring, they taste the closest to the source from all the other bought fruit juices {my favorite is pineapple juice – perfect!}. For each flavor I chose, I matched ingredients that would remove the ices from their comfort zone and make them surprising and refreshing, and the result is right here before you.

Cool off during the summer with one of these homemade, healthy & easy to make gourmet popsicle recipes

Preparation time – 5 minutes / freezing time – 4 hours

Quantity – 4 popsicles

Ingredients

→ 2 cups of JUMAX pineapple juice

→ Half a red chili pepper

3. Pour the mixture into an popsicle mold.

* The chilis has a tendency to float in liquid, so they will be in the back of the ices {if you use a mold like mine} or at the bottom {if you use a standing mold}. In order for the ices to come out as in the pictures, freeze one-third of the liquid together with the chili slices until completely frozen and then add the rest of the liquid.
