Popsicles or as Lille has been calling them Lollies are become a fast favorite of the girls. They are definitely an outdoor treat, but fun. The girls are even getting involved with the making of the popsicles, probably more for the tasting and licking of the spoons. As Franki says "I taste please".
This is a chocolate and vanilla mix popsicle. You could even do a multi layer if you had multiple puddings made up.
Fresh from the freezer. Just run under warm water and the mold releases.
This is a vanilla custard with fresh strawberries. (great use for left over eclair filling)
Vanilla Custard Recipe
2 cups coconut/almond milk blend (any kind, but not nonfat)
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
4 egg yolks, at room temperature
1/4 cup amount cornstarch
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
In a medium-size heavy-bottom saucepan, place the milk, sugar and salt, and whisk to combine. Bring the mixture to a simmer over medium-low heat. While the milk is coming to a simmer, in a medium, heat-safe bowl, mix together the cornstarch and egg yolks until smooth. The mixture will be thick and relatively stiff. Once the milk mixture has come to a simmer, remove from the heat and drizzle the hot milk very slowly into the egg yolk mixture, whisking constantly. This is to prevent the egg yolks from scrambling, but the mixture will inevitably clump a bit. Once the milk has all been added to the egg yolk mixture, transfer the whole mixture back to the saucepan and cook over medium-low heat, whisking constantly, until the custard has begun to bubble and thicken (about 1 minute). Remove the saucepan from the heat, and whisk in the vanilla extract. Continue to whisk the custard until it is no longer hot to the touch. Place custard in popsicle containers, and freeze until firm.
