Mango Plum Popsicle

Mango Plum Popsicle

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 ;-)

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!

    Truth: I’ve never made popsicles, and part of the reason for that is because I figured there’s no way I’d be able to photograph them like a champ. Knowing my luck, I’d go through the whole process 50 times and all of them would break before getting them out of the mold. Anyway, your photos turned out gorgeously! It was well-worth the effort, because I’m drooling over here!

      hahahahah… Ju, you are always so funny! Love your comments! I am sure you can take awesome pictures too because your photos are always stunning ;-)
      So glad you love the recipe ;-)

    I’m so in love with these! They look like a sunset and I think you’ve perfectly captured them! I imagine they’d be hard to photograph without melting all over the place -you did it though! Gorgeous. I love your popsicle mould too and think I should probably buy the same one. It’s retro-chic. Perfect recipe for this hot weather, Olivia!

    Girl, you are DEFINITELY not alone with popsicle photo trials. Seriously, they would be SO photogenic if they weren’t insistent on melting all over the place. LOL. But really, these photos are gorgeous as usual! I am in love with your combo of mangos and plums too—perfect mid-summer popsicle right here! Pinned. :)

    You’re right – popsicles are SO hard to photograph! I came up with these absolutely to-die-for peanut butter coconut popsicles dipped in chocolate–CHOCOLATE, people!–and went to photograph them and just.. ugh. It was so disheartening. I see beautiful shots all over Foodgawker and have no idea what I’m missing. YOUR shots are gorgeous, though! So vibrant and fruity! Yummm.

      Me too… I saw all the beautiful pictures on Pinterest and Foodgawer, but I didn’t image it was so hard to take these popsicle pictures. But we just need to practice more and more ;-)

    Frozen treats are SO tough to shoot! I’ve learned once popsicles are out of the mold (or ice cream scooped), I put them back in the freezer to get rock hard. Take them out, take a couple shots, then back into the freezer some more. It’s a royal pain in the butt!

    These popsicles are amazing… love the mango plum flavor combo!

      Chris, thank you so much your this tip. I didn’t think about it before. Next time I will take a couple shots and then put them back into the freezer! Great idea! Glad you like the recipe ;-)

    I’ve been wanting to make another popsicle recipe, but I’m scared that it is too hot outside and they will melt within seconds! These photos came out so well!! They look beautiful and even better, they sound amazing! I just love how topped it with the red plum, the colors look amazing together!

    Ha! Popsicles are the worst to photograph! Right behind burritos for me :) But, I kinda like the look of slightly melty popsicle photos! Anyways- these look delicious. I love mango anything and I bet they taste great with plum- pinning now!

    YEASSS… Pinning ~ Pinning ~ Pinning! Popsicles are the business, all the yumminess in a few tasty licks. I am impressed with your photography skills, I cant imagine it was an easy thing to do. Your pops looks amazing and delicious and tasty too. Mango is the essence of Summer for me, gahhhh drooling!

    Having read this I thought it was extremely enlightening.
    I appreciate you spending some time and energy to put
    this content together. I once again find myself personally spending way too much
    time both reading and leaving comments. But so what, it was still worthwhile!
