Coconut Mung Bean Kaffir Lime Popsicles

    Story and recipe on my blog.

    This was my first time using this popsicle mold and I think I ran it under hot water for too long trying to release them. The edges are definitely "rustic" haha but fortunately the taste was great =). I'd love any tips for getting popsicles to release cleanly!

      Like the monochromatic colors and the casual composition. The popsicles are not rustic ;-)) Your arrangements are always very interesting and playful.
      By the way, the recipe sounds very interesting.

      Very nice. I love this one. Perhaps you could use this tips to release popsicles : run lukewarm water over the outside of the popsicle moulds and it will come off easily.
      This is because it will melt the pops a bit so it will make it easier to slide out :D

      Thanks, Tika! I actually think I let them sit too long... I did do the running water thing, but my water also never gets that warm in the kitchen. Better luck next time I hope!

      I love your description of 'rustic'! I make lot's of 'rustic' looking items. =)
      They look wonderful to me. The flavors are so unique, I imagine they tasted amazing!

      Sound interesting! I agree with , the choice of colors, as opposed to what you might think, brings out the popsicles and makes the atmosphere complete with color tones similar to coffee that I really like ;)

      Stripes of popsicles and background go nice. I like composition and quiet colors of this image. And I would like to have your plates in my kitchen.

      Wow, an interesting recipe. In Asia mung and other beans are used a lot in making sweets - it is an area to be explored! Is the recipe your invention or is it an adaption? It is creative.

      I like the earthy hues and find the strong diagonal movement entertaining. I'm not able to decide if the objects are sliding down or climbing up. It is a good thing.

      I just cannot imagine the taste of these popsicles. I'm kinda missing the colors of this image. Popsicles are summer, but it looks like fall/winter :(

      To release the molds, I just dip them i n hot water a few times.

      Thanks, everyone!

      Vera, I see your point and appreciate your input. I suppose it is only 1 day until I leave for vacation and do not return until the end of August. So in my mind I'm already halfway into fall ;p. I do like the unexpected quality of the appearance versus the idea of summery popsicles, myself I enjoy popsicles year-round, and am still overall happy with the photo. Since the color of the pops was so neutral, I suppose I was afraid to overpower with color. I did want to avoid a completely monochratic palette, hence the mung beans. What color would you recommend having added?

      Laksmi, thank you for the comment and fav. It is an original recipe of mine though I was influenced by the basic mung bean popsicles I buy at Chinese stores (just water, sugar, mung beans mostly) as well as Thai flavors. I am now noticing from your comments that I seem to like diagonals hehe 8).

      Thank you all!
