Popsicles are quite possibly my new favorite thing to make. I simply love how creative you can be with them. Seriously, there are no limits. I've used tea, cake, booze, you name it...and I have made a popsicle with it.
This particular recipe is a twist on the first recipe I tried out. My first try was this sour cream popsicle with bourbon soaked cherries. And yes, it was as delicious as it sounds. I took them to Dolores Park with some friends on a sunny Sunday afternoon and they were quickly devoured.
I had planned for these figs to meet the same fate as those cherries but they were so fresh and bursting with flavor, that it broke my heart just to freeze them. I didn't want anything else to alter their taste. So I refrained and I am glad I did. These pops are scrumptious!
The sour cream can be a little off putting, I know. But with the vanilla and the sugar, it is much like greek yogurt. Why not just use greek yogurt, then? Well, because I didn't want to! But you can. Though I suggest you try it with the sour cream...you will be amazed.
