Orange Blossom Popsicles


My chocolate qashta pops were so good that I could not wait to try some new recipe using qashta. Qashta is a thick cream, you can buy in the Middle East that is used in Arabic sweets or ate alone. You can find all kinds made by big brands next to the condensed and evaporated milk here in Saudi. Since qashta already has a creamy sweetened flavor, adding sugar is not nessecery. I decided to leave the flavor intact while adding a few small ingredients and wow this one ended up being my favorite yet.

2 (170 gram) cans of qashta
1/4 cups milk (I used full fat)
2 tablespoons orange blossom water
6 dates, chopped (I used dates that are half ripe and half not)

1. In a mixing bowl add, qashta, milk, orange blossom water and dates. With a hand mixer mix, well.

2. With a small spoon, carefully fill popsicle molds to the top. Place tops, then place in freezer overnight.

Yields: 6
