Beet pops, vegan pudding pops, instant pops: Popsicle season is never over! »
If you follow me on instagram (@meganrascal adoy), you know I recently got a Zoku quick popsicle maker! IT IS THE BEST PURCHASE I MADE IN MY LIFE (not including when I bought the Sweet Sweetback’s Baaddasssss Song soundtrack on vinyl, because clearly). You keep the maker in the freezer, and then when you want a pop, you take it out, pour the juice in, and SEVEN MINUTES LATER YOU HAVE YOUR POP! I am not kidding. Anyway, so I been eating like 6 grape popsicles a day (that’s quota, right?). And life couldn’t be better.
One day, I even got it in my head to make a vegan pudding pop!:
Kinda uggo but tasted yum! I made it with Zen almond milk chocolate pudding. Delicious! But it was kinda harder to make, fyi.
But then I saw our man Jerry James Stone is ALL ABOUT making cray pops! I don’t think he has an Zoku (amateur) but he makes all kinds of cool pops, like these beet and berry ones:
He also makes cool boozy pops with like champagne and tequila (not in the same pop, you lush) and all kinds of neato stuff! BUT he didn’t have a red wine pop recipe. CORNY! So I tweeted to ask him about it and he said he’d make one for me! EVIDENCE:
Yet I STILL have no red wine pop recipe! While I wait eagerly by the Twitter for JJS, here are some other vegan pops I want to make:
Fudge and Pumpkin Pie popsicles from My Recession Kitchen. Pops for pumpkin season, everybody!
Chocolate Peanut Butter Coffee pops from Spabettie! HOLY CANNOLI.
And Coconut Chai pops from Food Doodles! (Has honey but could easily sub a simple syrup for that.)
There you go! Those are my fall plans right there! In conclusion: if you are a true popsicle fan, you need a Zoku.
Raw Vegan Banana Coconut Cream Mini Pies! Banana pudding with Nila wafers is my ALL-TIME FAVORITE DESSERT so I’m always looking for delicious ways to recreate that taste sensation and this looks pretty g-d tasty! I might make it even easier by rigging some sort of a vegan vanilla wafer no-bake crust. I’m sure a recipe for that exists on this glorious internet of ours? I love the internet*!
*except for when I hate it.
