I love buttermilk. I love lemons. I love really tart, creamy, sweet things. I also recently received this popsicle maker in the mail and had been trying to decide what to freeze first. So when I ran across a recipe for these Easy, Creamy, Lemon Dream Popsicles at Whipped, I knew they would be the first ice pops to come out of my freezer.
Whipped is a food blog written by Caroline in Chicago and I’ve been a fan for a few years now. She has lots of great recipes featuring buttermilk and even created a page listing them all. That’s my kind of food blog. You might also want to check out her Greek Favorites page – lots of temptation there!
But let me tell you more about these popsicles. They are a cinch to make and super delicious! You should probably be a fan of lemon if you are going to make these because they pack some serious lemon punch. The recipe includes lemon juice and lots of lemon zest so a microplane grater will come in handy.
If you think you aren’t a fan of buttermilk, please don’t run from this recipe. The buttermilk adds a creaminess and tang that complements the lemon perfectly! Trust me.
If lemon just isn’t your thing or I haven’t convinced you that buttermilk popsicles are the greatest thing ever, you should still go check out Whipped. Perhaps some classic White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies or a Rhubarb Maple Crisp will tempt you. I know I’ll be trying the cool, crisp Napa Cabbage Slaw soon – it will be perfect on a hot summer evening.
