Citrus and Herb Popsicles

OrangePopsicles-2

As I look out at the cobalt blue sky and our burnt yellowed lawn I find it hard to believe it’s still early summer. We have had a crazy hot month here in Seattle, and it already feels like the middle of August. It’s been a constant battle to water all out veggies but I am not complaining. It’s been balmy and so wonderful to be able to dine al fresco in the sunshine every day. As cherries are in season right now, I have made a few batches of my Cherry Frozen Yogurt Popsicles, but recently I have been craving something citrusy and refreshing. I love fresh orange juice, so I came up with these citrus pops with orange juice, a little lemon and lime juice and maple syrup. I also added some fresh basil and mint, which taste so good with the strong citrus flavor. These pops are a cinch to make and really cooling on a hot summers day.
