Stay cool with homemade ice pops this summer. I know that your local supermarket has hundreds of ice pops to choose from, but most of these are artificially flavored and loaded with sugar, plus they don’t have the secret ingredient – beer. Yep, you heard me! These delicious ice pops are made with Kriek Lambic, a beer made by fermenting lambic with sour Morello cherries. Homemade ice pops are easy and fun to make; thanks for this awesome recipe A Cozy Kitchen.
Ingredients (Makes 4, but recipe recommends you double):
- 2 cups (about 1/2 pound) chopped cherries 2 tablespoons organic cane sugar
- 3/4 cup Kriek Lambic beer
- 1/4 cup plus 2 tbsp. heavy cream
- 2 tbsp. organic cane sugar
- Add the chopped cherries and sugar to a blender.
- Blend until completely smooth, about 1 minute.
- Pour in the Kriek Lambic and pulse for about 10 seconds, just until combined.
- Set aside to allow the bubbles to go away.
- In a small bowl, combine the heavy cream and sugar.
- Fill the popsicle molds with the lambic mixture about 1/4 of the way. (Tip: I was able to find popsicle molds at my local dollar store or you can use small plastic cups or an ice cube try for large ice cubes.)
- Next, layer with a few tablespoons of heavy cream and then the rest of the cherry lambic mixture.
- Pour the rest of the heavy cream into each of the popsicle molds and transfer to the freezer.
- Once your popsicles have been in the freezer for one hour, add the popsicle sticks to each popsicle.
- Freeze overnight.
- Run the popsicle molds under warm water to loosen.
- Eat immediately!
