A few weekends ago I went to see Amos Lee and David Gray, two of my all time favorite musicians. My wingman was my dad and it was the best night of singing out loud, the most beautiful Indiana sky, fireworks (from the Indians game), and quality time with my dad. White River State Park has a great concert series by the canal and the Nicey truck has a spot inside the park. They offer a lot of flavors of popsicles and it is so hard to pick just one. They had a sweet corn popsicle at Dig In last summer and I have been a fan of their interesting flavors ever since. I went with passion fruit and it was amazing. I googled until I found a recipe I like and I am happy to say I think that the Nicey folks would approve. I went with berries since passion fruit is hard to find and the goat cheese made these rich and creamy. Also, no need to buy those fancy popsicle molds – a small paper cup and popsicle sticks work just as well. Mine are from Amazon for $10 if you want to make the investment.
Side note: my concert attire was a long black knit dress from Old Navy, a Gap jean jacket that I have had forever, a Lilly murfee scarf that was a splurge at the time, but brightens any outfit, Birkenstocks, and my new favorite electric blue ray-bans. It was a little chilly and I was glad I layered.
BERRY GOAT CHEESE POPSICLES
Recipe inspired by My Baking Addiction
1 cup milk (I used vanilla almond milk)
4 ounces goat cheese
3 tablespoons honey
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
a cup or so of frozen mixed berries
In a small sauce pan set over medium/low, gently heat milk, goat cheese, honey,and vanilla extract. Whisk constantly until milk mixture is warm and goat cheese is completely melted into the milk. Set aside to cool.
Place the berries in a pan, with a spoonful of sugar and heat until it reaches a sauce consistency.
Spoon a tablespoon of the berry mixture into the bottom of each popsicle mold. Pour in a bit of the milk mixture until molds are halfway filled. Drop one more tablespoon of berries in each mold and top with milk mixture. Freeze for 4-6 hours). Enjoy!
