This treat is based on a recipe from Fresher than Fresh snowcones but adapted for those of us who don’t own ice shavers. I found the recipe in this month’s Bust Magazine. Enjoy!

Lindsay Laricks’ Blackberry-Lavender Popsicles
What you’ll need:
2 C blackberries, 1 C sugar, 1 1/2 C water, 2 Tbl fresh lavender buds, 6 Tbl fresh lemon juice, popsicle molds (or ice cube trays, disposable cups, etc), wooden popsicle sticks (swizzles & chopsticks also work)
The how to:
Put blackberries, sugar, water & lavender in saucepan. Bring ingredients to a boil; reduce heat, & simmer for 8 minutes.
Mash ingredients to extract the most juice possible out of the berries.
Let cool for ~30 minutes in fridge.
Remove from the fridge & add lemon juice.
Strain mixture into large measuring cup with pour spout (or something similar), using a fine strainer or sieve.
Pour mixture into popsicle molds; cover with foil; poke sticks or swizzles through foil to seure in place.
Freeze for ~4 hours. Pop those suckers out of the molds and enjoy!
