I don’t normally jump into the Throwback Thursday boat, but I also don’t normally bake. And since it happens to be Thursday and I wanted to prove that once upon a time I did indeed bake a pie, I thought I’d give it a whirl. So, friends, here’s my first ever #tbt to that one time that I baked my first ever peach pie!
With the sun and heat coming back to Portland (slowly…so slowly) my desire to live off of popsicles is in full swing! And since I always indulge my sweet-tooth, I thought I’d try my hand at a more healthy alternative. I like to keep frequent options for desserts available on my Pinterest Dessert board so that I can go down the rabbit-hole of desserty goodness any time I want. It was through this abyss of Pins and links that I came across Nom Nom Paleo’s Lava Flow Ice Pops and they are aaaaaaaaa-mazing!
I followed the directions to a “T” and because my popsicle mold holds 6 popsicles instead of 8, I had enough left over to make a delicious Lava Flow drink afterward! BONUS! So, friends, go follow this recipe right here and enjoy the guilt-free joy of this frozen treat!
They look amazing as well!
Now that the warm weather has finally started sticking, my Pinterest interests have primarily taken the form of cool and refreshing desserts and drinks. Also, ones with alcohol. You’d be surprised at how quickly the two (desserts and adult beverages) can be combined to make an unstoppable, all-empowering super dessert of boozy goodness. At least I was surprised. Perhaps surprised is the wrong word; instead, I was freaking stoked because now I can say that I’m bringing popsicles to an all-ages party and not feel like a giant jerk when I’m standing in the background, sucking down the wine because all the children are slowly freaking me out. Instead, I can slowly slurp on boozy popsicles and have way more fun! Though I’m really excited to try my hand at these new-found recipes, I was stopped in my tracks by the non-alcohol infused popsicles that A Beautiful Mess recently posted. I mean, look at these! How could you not want to devour every single one?! Brown Butter Popsicles!!
