Creamy Tahini Raspberry Rosewater Popsicles

We food bloggers can get pretty serious about our food. Clearly. So much so that at times this adoration might get down right borderline stalker-level, crazy. What the heck am I talking about, are you wondering? Oh no big deal, just this little thing called POPSICLE WEEK!! That’s right, for the third year in a row, our friend Billy of Wit & Vinegar has declared a whole week dedicated to this summer-inspired frosty goodness on a stick.

Considering I have no shortage of love for this frozen treat, as evident of the many popsicle recipes I have posted over the years, I finally decided this year to join the 50+ other food bloggers and get in on all the frosty fun. I decided to pull out all stops and get a little crazy with my popsicles and mix things up a bit.

These Creamy Tahini Raspberry Rosewater Popsicles may sound a little strange to some of you, a bit of an odd flavor pairing for some of you, but you have to trust me. The creamy rich and sweet coconut milk pairs so beautiful with the strong, nutty flavor of the tahini and the rosewater in that layer is the perfect pairing, floral, sweet and delicate. The beautifullly vibrant bottom layer with the tart raspberries brings it all together so nicely and it offers the palate a little something bright and light, to offset the creamy, richness.

Not only are these popsicles so beautiful and delicious, but they are also a great option for those with challenged diets. They are naturally gluten-free and vegan, but also great for those with a nut allergy or someone on a restricted elimination diet.

If you can’t have coconut, try another non-dairy milk, just note the fat content in coconut milk keeps these from getting too icy. Ice crystals tend to form more-so with other non-dairy (nut-based) milks.

this sounds like such a yummy play on the raspberry rose flavor combo (: esp because i already stick coconut milk and sesame seeds/sesame oil/tahini where they probably shouldn’t go.

I LOVE these Beth!!
And I have to say we sometimes have this same food-calling… like right now, I have almost identical pops in the freezer that I still need to shoot and post (you beat me to it) but hey, we’re on the same creative and delicious page and that’s awesome!
(mine have no tahini or rosewater though) so I have yet to try this recipe!
These look amazing!! :) xox
