Introduction: Vanilla Fruit Popsicles

For this project you will need
• bowls
• saucepans
• whipping cream
• milk
• sugar
• whisk & spatula
• chopped fruit ( 3 oz or more )
• egg yolks
• lemon juice
• cornstarch
• vanilla extract

Step 1: Milk Base

Mix 1/2 cup of sugar, 1/2 cup of milk, and 1 tablespoon of cornstarch in a saucepan on medium heat until boiling.

Step 2: Egg Mixture

While the milk base boils ( don’t forget to stir ) add 3 egg yolks and 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract. Whisk until combined. Then while whisking pour the milk base into the boil.

Step 3: The Custard

Poor the combined milk base and egg mixture back into the saucepan. Set on medium high and stir, then rest and let boil till a thick base forms. While it rests in a bowl whip 1 cup of whipping cream until soft peaks.

Step 4: Combining

Now add your custard and your whipping cream together. Mix until completely combined.

Step 5: Fruit Compote

Let the base from step 4 sit in the fridge until ready to fill molds. In a separate sauce pan take your chopped fruit ( doesn’t matter what kind. I used blueberries & peaches ) 1 teaspoon of lemon juice and 1 teaspoon of sugar, and place on medium heat till fruit break down. ( keep your compotes separate !! )

Step 6: Combining Part 2

Take 2 bowls ( depending on how many compotes made ) and seperate the base you put in the fridge into the bowls evenly. Then add your fruit compote(s) and stir them in.

Step 7: Pouring Into the Molds

Now that your compote has been mixed in, pour into your popsicle molds. Then place in the freezer over night ( for best results ) or until completely frozen. And now you are done. Enjoy!!
