Cardamom Pear Popsicles

Pears are the perfect late-summer early-fall snack.  This recipe for Cardamom Pear Popsicles is a great hybrid treat celebrating the popsicles of summer and pears of fall. Cardamom’s spicy-sweet taste is a great compliment to pear. Buying cardamom pods and grinding yourself will result in a fresher, stronger flavor, but pre-ground might just be more realistic, huh?

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 cups vanilla almond milk
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 3 soft pears (pureed)
  • 1/2 teaspoon cardamom (ground)
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon (ground)
  • 1/4 teaspoon ginger (ground)

DIRECTIONS

1.  Peel soft pears.  Cut into 1 inch pieces, and microwave on low heat for 1 minute.

2.  In a small pot, combine all ingredients and simmer for 2-3 minutes.

3.  Transfer all ingredients into a food process or blender and beat until smooth.

4.  Pour into molds and freeze for 2-3 hours.
