Maybe this was one of those gifts that was as much for me as it was for Curtis. Maybe I loved the idea of having healthy popsicles for our kids in 7 minutes (how long it takes for popsicles to freeze). Maybe this was the first anniversary gift I had ever gotten Curtis. Maybe I won't get him another one for another 8 years, say for our 16th anniversary which I hear is an expensive saute pan year. :)
We've enjoyed many popsicles many times this summer. The kids' favorite (besides straight up orange juice popsicles) are the Peach Mango Popsicles.
Peach Mango Popsicles
from Whole Foods Market website
1 mango, peeled, seeded, and pureed (it should equal 1 c pureed)
2 -3 peaches, pitted and pureed (it should equal 1 c pureed)
1/4 c water
2 T sugar (or agave nectar would work too, use less agave nectar than you would sugar)
lime or lemon juice, to taste
Combine fruits in a medium bowl. In a small pan, heat water and sugar, stirring until sugar dissolves. Add to the fruit. Add lime or lemon juice to taste.
Fill popsicle molds. (Magical Zoku molds take 7 minutes to freeze! Otherwise, freeze until set, 3 - 4 hours).
