Hi peps this year, summer here in Ireland was so hot on it's peak. That is why we need to find ways to cool down. Kids requested to make popsicles and so I did with their help. 

Have you ever wondered how this popsicle was being discovered?  

Actually, it was out of the blue. Shockingly it was found out by an eleven-year-old boy. And the story goes like this: 

In 1905, eleven-year-old Frank Epperson left a cup filled with powdered soda, water, and a stirring stick on his San Francisco porch. That night, low temperatures caused the mixture to freeze — and a summertime staple was born. Today, two billion Popsicles are sold every year.*

Wow, thanks to Frank and today we are enjoying his discovery especially at summer time. We can even do it in the midst of our home. 

This recipe that I am going to share is deliciously rich and creamy. Our ingredients are so simple and can be found in our local supermarkets. So let's check it out and start our making. Have fun!

  • 1 cup of milk
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 2 tbsp corn starch
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup of sugar (120g sugar) or 1/4 cup stevia sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup of whipping cream
Tip: If you don't want it too sweet you can adjust your sugar measurement.

  1. Place the sugar, salt and corn starch in a saucepan. Whisk to combine. Next, whisk in the milk (make sure there are no lumps of corn starch).
  2. Heat the milk mix until the sugar dissolves and the milk is just under boiling point.
  3. While the milk is heating, whisk the egg yolks and vanilla in a small bowl. When the milk has heated, pour about ½ a cup of the milk into the yolks (WHILE WHISKING THE YOLKS).
  4. When the egg yolks mixture have been tempered, strain it back into the milk in the saucepan, using a sieve.
  5. Heat the milk-egg yolk mix on medium heat and bring it to a boil, while whisking regularly until you form a thick and pudding like custard. 
  6. Cover and set aside to cool.
  7. When the custard has cooled, whisk the whipping cream until you get soft peaks. Add the lightly whipped cream to the cooled custard and fold it in gently until well combined - be careful not to knock out the air in the cream. 
  8. Then pour it in the moulder. Cover and don't forget to place the stick on top.
  9. Put in the freezer overnight to harden well.
Tips:  When remove from freezer to consume, leave it for several minutes outside to soften the edges and easy to remove form the moulder. Or thaw it in a room temperature water to loosen up. 

To make a chocolate popsicle:
Follow the steps 1 to 6. Then combine the melted chocolate with the whipping cream in a heated pan. Mix until chocolate fully incorporated with the whipping cream. Once this achieve, you can pour it to the egg yolk mixture and fold it accordingly until blended. Finally you can put it to the moulder. 

If you doesn't want to make too much popsicles, you can divide the egg yolk mixture and the whipping cream in order to make vanilla and chocolate popsicles like what we did in the video.
