Pineapple pink lemonade popsicle

You might remember Trisha Zemp from the stellar photos she’s been taking for me for the past year and a half. Well, Trisha recently bought 1,000 popsicle sticks (1,000 was cheaper than 100!) and she’s proclaimed this summer the #Summerof1000Popsicles. This is something I can get behind, folks. Clearly. She’s kicked if off with a few recipes on her Instagram a few weeks ago but now is going gung ho and popsicling until they run out! For this first set of 8 popsicles, we’ve collaborated to create something you will not be surprised about, #PopsicleTheRainbow. Based on #CraftTheRainbow and #LetterTheRainbow, #PopsicleTheRainbow is all about creating a rainbow of tried and true popsicle flavors.

We’ll be posting the recipes here on the blog, but join us on Instagram (and Trisha’s here) for some beautiful rainbow popsicles as well! And if you make some, be sure to tag them with #Summerof1000Popsicles or #PopsicleTheRainbow.

See you there and see below for the full recipe!

Sweet Spot: The Monkey Business Sundae

monkey-business-sundae-6

I’m so happy to introduce you to a new contributor to Lars. Sarah Coates from The Sugar Hit, based out of Brisbane, Australia, will be sharing a new monthly column on the blog called Sweet Spot and as one who has a major sweet I’m both excited and worried about my soon to be growing waistline. She has a cookbook coming out in the fall and it’s now on pre-order!

There is nothing I love more than working with people who inspire me, and who know how to have fun. That’s why I’m so excited to be here contributing to The House That Lars Built. Brittany’s eye for colour and design is a major inspiration to me. Getting to bounce ideas and work around with inspiring creative people is what makes it not feel like work at all – it just feels like play.

And that’s the idea behind this sundae – Monkey Business! Nobody plays around better than our primate friends. So I wanted to do something that had a really fun mix of hot and cold, soft and crunchy textures, sweet things and salty things. From there, I couldn’t help but get a little more literal. So this sundae turned into what I imagine would be Curious George’s dream dessert.
