Creamy Tahini Raspberry Rosewater PopsicleHere’s another popsicle.

The ingredient list is why I did it. The “Creamy Tahini Raspberry Rosewater Popsicles,” from Tasty Yummies, includes not only all that, but coconut milk and honey, too. Can you fathom such a crazy combo?

I’ll tell you now why my pops don’t look like her pops: I’ve lost my patience with the layering thing. Instead, I mixed all the ingredients together, at once, in my blender. This way, I could pour and freeze and be done with it. So, rather than achieving pretty, calculated stripes of color, I got a cohesive lavender. OK?

Let’s get to the important stuff: what does this taste like? Well…it’s odd. It’s adult. The first bite tastes like tahini, which can be alarming. The second bite tastes like roses, which can be upsetting. But then, you keep eating and your mouth enjoys the creaminess (all that coconut milk, remember). You recognize that sweet/sour quality of the raspberries. Your brain puts it all together and then you realize…this tastes like dark chocolate!

Really. That’s what you get, here. The combo becomes dark chocolate (if only it looked like it too!). So, if you’re into such an experiment of taste and texture, try this one.

Stand by for more summertime pop-ups soon.
