Summer Snacktime Series: Blackberry-Lime Popsicles

Another week, another popsicle flavor! Thank you for all of the suggestions, we are working through them here in the test kitchen. Today’s combo is a non-dairy number, Blackberry Lime. Why, you say? Because the Practical Cook adores blackberries, they look cool in suspension, and that’s not going to happen in gel on her watch.

Without further adieu, it’s popsicle time.

Blackberry-Lime Popsicles

1 cup or more blackberries, washed and patted dry
1 Key or regular lime, zested (optional) and cut in half
blackberry juice drink (or a blackberry compatible flavor, this juice came from Trader Joe’s)

1. Drop the blackberries and a dash of lime zest (if using) in the bottom of the popsicle molds. Add just a squeeze of lemon juice, a spritz really, to each popsicle mold.
