Do you have a favorite summer time memory? Does it involve playing uninterrupted with your siblings and friends for long hours? Mine does. Summer vacations were the best time of the year because there was no school and no homework. We would still get up very early in the morning but eagerly and not forcibly. Wondering why? We all friends would meet around 7am and go to the nearby bike store to rent a bike for an hour. Our big gang of boys and girls would then be seen cycling around the neighborhood aimlessly for the next one hour. After we were done cycling, we would return the bikes, pay the owner and walk back home. Now is the best part. We would always make a pit stop at the store and buy Popsicles. We sure needed some sugar and energy in our body after having spent the morning in the scorching sun. Ice Pops was our little treat. I would get a new colored Popsicle every day.
We would then show off our colorful tongues to each other and laugh silly over it. Kala Khatta and Orange were my absolute favorite flavors though. Even now whenever its summer time, these memories come rushing back to me. My love for Popsicles goes way back. Mom would replicate the orange flavored ones at home for us, but kala khatta was a tough one to make. Kala Khatta is a dark purple, sweet tangy sherbet that’s made from blackberry (Jamun) fruit. Indian Masala Soda is also a sweet and tangy lemonade. I wanted to combine these two recipes and create a fun Popsicle recipe that’s fit for the summers and that’s loved by adults and children. That is how I came up with the idea of make Blueberry Masala Soda Popsicle. I wanted to keep it healthy and sugar free because this was going to be my post workout snack. That is why making it blueberries was a good idea.
Blueberries are naturally sweet, low in calories and nutrient dense. You can try making these Ice Pops using any berries that are locally available. Low calorie snacks like these are quick to make and great to taste. Without much ado, let me show you how to make Blueberry Masala Soda Popsicles. You need a good blender for this recipe. Since we are making Ice Pops, I prefer to use frozen berries. You can use fresh ones too. In a blender jar, add frozen blueberries, lemon juice, mint leaves, roasted cumin powder, black salt, soda or sparkling water, Himalayan salt and chaat masala. You can add little brown sugar if you want. Blend it all together. Strain the mixture and pour it in Popsicle molds. Don’t fill it fully, just about 3/4 of it. Freeze overnight. Then sit back and enjoy these delicious and chatpata Blueberry Masala Soda Popsicle all summer!
