Blackberry Lavender Popsicles
Okay, I know you already know that I'm a little bit of a popsicle fanatic. Little bit. Unless, of course, this is your first visit to my little space. In that case, I say welcome - pull up a lawn chair and have a popsicle!
I know it's been unseasonably...well okay, not unseeeeasonably, I suppose...more like unreasonably HOT this year. And I could think of no better excuse to try as many different types of popsicles, paletas, ice pops, push pops, and ice cream bars as I possibly can.
- 1 heaping pint (2 cups) fresh blackberries
- ~¾ c. superfine sugar (or agave nectar)
- 1 Tbs. lavender buds (fresh or dried)
- 3 Tbs. freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 1 c. cold water
