Black Sesame Coconut Popsicles

It’s Popsicle Week!!!

I LOVE popsicle week. If you’re unfamiliar, let me give you the low-down. Amelia’s uncle and one of my favorite humans alive, Billy Green of Wit and Vinegar, hosts it every year. This year over 100 bloggers are participating!! WHAA!!! Amazing. You might’ve noticed this in your Instagram or blog reader this week and it’s all bc of his passion for all things popsicles.

Last year I made these very fun and festive Funfetti Cake Batter Popsicles. This year I wanted to get a little bit more grown-up, a little more sophisticated. Enter: black sesame paste. It’s one of my favorite ingredients (remember these cookies?). Think black tahini. That’s basically what it is and tastes like. If you’re having trouble finding black sesame paste, then just use tahini—it’ll taste EXACTLY the same.

Another cool thing I found out when making these, sesame paste/tahini and strawberry go REALLY well together. I sprinkled crushed up freeze-dried strawberries on these and wasn’t really sure how they were gonna taste but MAN OH MAN SO GOOD.

I shot these a day when my weather app on my phone was reading 105 degrees F outside. Well, as soon as we took them out of the mold and placed them on the marble to shoot them they turned into a huge puddle of mess. It was the saddest thing ever. They were REMADE and shot again on a 90 degree F day.

If you’re needing to shoot popsicles on a hot day, these things help:

1. Make sure you freeze them overnight. Those suckers need to be FROZEN.
2. Place a plate or baking sheet or whatever you’re going to use to serve them in the freezer for at least 30 minutes.
3. Then, remove the popsicles from their mold and place them on the frozen baking sheet or plate AND return them to the freezer for at least 30 minutes.
4. Set up the shot, even set your camera to the proper ISO/f-stop, etc. AND then quickly remove them from the freezer and snap away.

I did this on shoot day #2 and my popsicle-shooting was much more enjoyable.

Tomorrow I leave for MEXICO!!! YASS. I’ll be there for 6 glorious days of sunshine and my best fweindz wedding. More on that soon, but for now, POPSICLES.

OH and P.S. this is the popsicle mold I use. I bought it a few years ago and it’s really good quality.

*I found my black sesame paste at an Asian grocery store.
*If you can't find black sesame paste, substitute the black sesame paste for tahini.
*If the black sesame paste is separated (oil and paste), add the entire thing to the blender and pulse until emulsified.

    Wait, is this sweetened condensed milk, or a savory popsicle? Intrigued, yet perplexed! Beautiful photos. Curious to learn more 🙂

      Yes, this is sweetened condensed milk 🙂 It’s a sweet popsicle but not too sweet.
