Colorful Stacking Rings

Back in March I introduced you to the Beach Jewelry Collection for Spring 2015.  The jewelry collection included many enamel pieces that were new to Nautical Wheeler Jewelry.  I absolutely loved adding splashes of color to my handmade jewelry and as it turned it out, so did many of you!  Which is why going forward you can expect to see even more pops of color, including these Stacking Rings.  These colorful stacking rings are now available in hues of turquoise, coral and more!  You can pick from six different shades and I love how they mix n’ match so easily.  Check it out:

Raspberry Yogurt Popsicle Recipe

How tasty do these look?!  Ombré goodness made with fresh fruit that will help keep you cool through the end of the Summer.  I spotted this recipe on Cookie Dough and Over Mitt blog and with how hot it’s been (le sigh) these popsicles really hit the spot!  Grab the recipe:

raspberry popsicles

 

INGREDIENTS
  • 1 + ¼ cups fresh raspberries
  • 2 T. granulated sugar
  • 2 6 oz. yogurt, french vanilla
  • 1 T. lemon juice
  • zest of 1 lemon
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Place the fresh raspberries in a fine mesh strainer. Press the raspberries with a spatula and continue to work it until all of the juice is in the bowl and only the seeds and some skin is left in the strainer. Discard seeds.
  2. Add the granulated sugar into the raspberry puree. Stir to combine. Set aside.
  3. In a mixing bowl, add in the yogurt, lemon juice, and lemon zest. Stir to incorporate.
  4. Scoop the yogurt into four popsicle mold cavaties. Try to keep it even.
  5. Put the raspberry puree into a cup with a spout or spoon it into the molds to the top. Using a knife or a skewer, poke the raspberry puree down into the yogurt mixture until it’s mixed to your liking. Avoid stirring to get the swirled effect like mine.
  6. Place the popsicle sticks or tops in. Freeze overnight until set.
  7. Run hot water on the outside of the mold for about 30 seconds. Pull popsicles out and serve.
