Intro: Vanilla Fruit Popsicles
For this project you will need
• whipping cream
• whisk & spatula
• chopped fruit ( 3 oz or more )
• egg yolks
• lemon juice
• 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!!
