- I got nothing against Astro Pops, but you can only eat so many of them before you go into some sort of sugar coma. These guys, on the other hand, are a great alternative to anything you find in an ice cream truck. So, let's go make them. A raw recipe with only a few ingredients. I know, crazy, right? Lemons are one of the most underrated fruits in my opinion. They're not flashy or glamorous, but they're really cheap, and they have a bunch of amazing benefits. They're great for your digestion, for detoxification, and they also increase collagen, which just makes your skin glow. So, we all need that. Get your glow on. So, we're gonna start out by making our own almond milk. I've had these almonds soaking overnight. We're just gonna put the almonds and the water straight into the blender and blend it until it's nice and smooth. This is one of the better blenders on the market, but it's still gonna take me at least two minutes, so if you have more of a regular blender, just be patient. Chill. Okay, great! Now, we're just gonna strain it out. So, I'm gonna use cheesecloth. You could also use a sieve or pantyhose if you're gross. No, but really, you can use pantyhose. But it's kinda gross. Just pour it straight into here. Wrap it all up, and then we're basically gonna milk it. It's pretty much like milking a cow. Except a cow made of almonds. So, the other benefit is that you can actually use this crushed up almond in here, this pulp, for baking, bars, or cookies or anything like that. So, you're really getting the most out of your almonds. And now, we're just gonna clean out our blender 'cause we need to use it again. First thing I'm gonna do now is put my fresh almond milk in here, and then we're gonna add the fresh lavender. You can find lavender at basically any health foods store, but you're gonna need to grind it up first before you add it to the blender. So to do this, I use a coffee grinder. Super quick and easy. And just put it straight into your blender. Now, I'm gonna put the rest of my ingredients in. Lemon juice. Agave nectar. A little bit of coconut oil. Just a pinch of salt. And I'm just gonna add a little bit of lemon zest because I like it. And now let's blend it up. So now, we're ready to assemble our popsicles. I'm gonna use my fancy little molds, but you could also just use a paper cup or anything that you have. And just stick your fruit in first. I'm using peaches here, but you can really use any fruit. Berries are really awesome in the summer. I like to push it in, so that it's kinda of laying on the side, so that when you actually pull your popsicle out, you'll be able to see the fruit on the side. I just think it's pretty. And then, let's just pour in our almond milk. So remember, we've got all of that lavender and the lemon. All of these really great flavors in here, so when it goes along with the peaches, it's gonna be really effing delicious. It's summer, y'all. Okay. So for mine, this is where I put my lid on and stick my popsicle sticks in. Boom. Popsicles. And now, we're just gonna stick these in the freezer. For awhile. Get creative with these. You can really try it with any fruit, and it just makes a perfect summer treat. Oh, they actually are good.
