The Thanksgiving holiday came and went and before I knew it, I was very full and slightly regretful of how much I ate. We had a bunch of cranberry sauce leftover, so I decided to make Leftover Cranberry Sauce Popsicles. This is a delicious and super easy recipe you don’t want to miss out on.
Balancing the Flavors
Since the cranberry sauce is tart, I used greek yogurt and maple syrup to help balance the tart with some sweetness. They tasted so delicious and despite the cold weather, they were really refreshing after all the rich foods we had been eating.
Blend It Up
I used our Vitamix to blend all the ingredients together to get everything nice and smooth. And, while a regular blender would probably work just as well for this particular recipe, this machine has helped me make SO MANY RECIPES ranging from velvety smooth soups, chunky salsa and even homemade pasta dough. A regular blender just can’t do everything the Vitamix can. We have the A3500 and the S55. The S55 is currently out of stock, but is comparable to the S30.
Let me know if you try the recipe and if you’ve had your eye on a Vitamix, but still have questions, be sure to let me know! I’m a huge fan.
A lot of readers have asked for prints of the popsicle with the bite. They love the bright colors and it’s a fun image for your kitchen or anywhere in your home. It could also make a great gift for a foodie in your life. If you’re interested in printing this image on wood or lustre photo paper, stop by and take a look!
