Guys I have to confess something to all of you! It is so hard to photograph popsicles. Oh man… I made about three popsicle recipes, but this one was the only recipe that I could photograph well. My first recipe was a blueberry yogurt popsicle which was so delicious, but unfortunately the pictures were terrible. They were melting all over the place and unfortunately I couldn’t take ONE SINGLE nice picture. Do you believe that? I think my problem started from the moment I removed the popsicles from the molds. I left the mold under warm water too long. So, when I removed them from the mold, they were already melting. I tried to take few very fast photos but it didn’t go anywhere.
Few days later I made the same popsicle recipe, but again the photos were not nice. The popsicles tasted really good but on the pictures looked very ugly, because they melted very quickly again. So, I decided to try another recipe and this time I was fast enough to take the pictures with nice popsicles. As I said before, I never thought it was so hard to take popsicles pictures. I should read some tips about how to take nice pictures of popsicles recipes before try to take one! But this time they didn’t melt very fast because I use a plate full of ice. I think it is a very good strategy
I know it is already mid August and summer is almost gone, but these popsicles still perfect dessert for all the end of summer parties coming up! It is so easy and fast to make and you will need only 3 ingredients and no artificial sugar added. And the best part they are dairy-free. I hope you all enjoy this recipe!
