Yogurt And Fruit Popsicles With A Hint Of Elderflower And A Supermarket Find
A few years ago I went to a friends house for brunch, she served the most delicious fruit salad, it was on my mind the other day, the salad was comprised of primarily dark fruits, blackberries, red grapes and blueberries, the fruit macerated in brown sugar and when the sugar is dissolved and the fruit has given off some of its juices you add creme fraiche or sour cream. This is a delicious fruit salad and has always been one of my favorites. I thought it would be wonderful frozen. No real recipe is needed for this, you can make according to taste adding the amount of sugar and optional elderflower you like.
I went to the supermarket the other day to pick up a few items and I’m always on the lookout for something that catches my eye, might be a tad bit unusual and has to potential to be delicious. I was immediately drawn to these little bottles, the flavors are unusual and I of course had to buy each flavor available. I used the elderflower water in the popsicles and will soon try the others. I am particularly intrigued by the elderflower rose, I love that these are really pushing the limits of the average tastebuds and catering to people who might like something different. The good people at Belvoir have no idea I am blogging about their product and I am simply passing on what I think is a great product worth trying if you happen to see it.
1 cup blackberries

Mix fruit and sugars in a bowl and allow to macerate in the refrigerator for 2 hours, spoon fruit in popsicle mold, mix yogurt with fruit juices and pour over fruit into mold. Freeze overnight.
