They’re pink, they’re ombre, and they are made with only 5 ingredients, 2 of which are Cascadian Farm ingredients. Introducing my latest go to dessert–Vegan Strawberry Shortcake Popsicles!
These pops are perfect for this intense summer heat we’re having in NYC right now and while I’m definitely a warm weather lover (I may be the only one enjoying these temps right now…) I love a good frozen treat in the summer.
In exactly 1 week, I’m headed to the PNW, where the weather isn’t quite as warm, BUT it will be my first time in the PNW and my first time in Washington. Rockport, Washington to be exact. Why Rockport you ask? Well, if you take a quick peek at the bag of frozen strawberries or the french vanilla almond granola box, you’ll notice a little stamp that says, “Skagit Valley, WA, since 1972”. Yup. I’ll be visiting THE actual Cascadian Farm with The FeedFeed team!
It’s such an incredible opportunity to be able to visit and see where exactly the food we eat comes from because the production process is usually something that is out of sight out of mind. We’re used to going to the grocery store without thinking too much about where the produce we’re picking up comes from, but as I’ve transitioned into more shopping for groceries more consciously, I have paid more attention not only to the quality of my purchases but also the origin. Everything from Cascadian Farm is organic, including their dry good products like granola bars. My policy on organic is, if you can buy organic, do.
I know organic has a reputation for being more expensive, but consider purchasing frozen organic produce. The produce is frozen right at its peak ripeness, is far more affordable than fresh produce and lasts a lifetime in your freezer. Cascadian Farm frozen organic produce makes organic affordable, and accessible. Take these pops for example, using frozen organic strawberries brings the cost down in comparison with using fresh strawberries and also makes the blending process a whole lot easier. Personally, I try my best to purchase organic when I can, but when I’m buying frozen produce, it makes it a lot easier to do so.
Now back to these popsicles–they’re tart, tangy, sweet and the granola base acts almost like a cakey texture as it becomes a little bit soft during the freezing process. The best part in my opinion is that you can go as crazy (or not) as you’d like with the layering to get an ombre effect, a swirl, or you can go all one colour. Layering gives you a unique experience and different flavours to bite through, but it’s completely customizable and is so easy!
