A peek Into My Kitchen: Blackberry Ice Pops: Even for Breakfast ;)


These pops are so wholesome that you could even serve them for breakfast!

My quest for a variety of homemade popsicles to replace those laden with dyes, preservatives and other horrible (though sometimes tasty) unmentionables.

The only drawback to these pops is that the beautiful, deep purple color may make you want to drape your apartment and your kids in plastic wrap to prevent the inevitable staining when you serve them.

Blackberry Pops

2/3 cup water
2/3 cup sugar
2 cups blackberry puree
1 cup plain yogurt
1-2 Tbsp Honey or Agave nectar (You may need more if your use the optional lemon juice)
optional: 4 teaspoons lemon juice


Baskin-Robbins 31 cent scoop night is almost here! 4/28/2010

I admit it, as much as I believe in feeding my family healthy, chemical-free food, I have a soft spot in my heart for Baskin-Robbins Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream.  That glowy bright green color, produced by God knows what part of the periodic table, just makes me love it even more.  So much so, in fact, that all other mint chocolate chip treats fail to compare.  Make mine a double with some brightly hued, nutrient-devoid rainbow sprinkles.

On  Wednesday April 28th from 5pm-10pm, participating Baskin-Robbins stores will reduce the price of ice cream scoops to 31 cents. Better yet, The Baskin-Robbins Community Foundation will be donating $100,000 of the proceeds to the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation™ (NFFF). How's that for a reason to feel good about giving yourself a cheap and yummy treat?!
