Dates popsicle

Sunny Sunday popsicles post by my daughter Varsha. Check out her coconut lemonade popsicle recipe.  Over to Varsha….
Today is my parents wedding anniversary, so I thought I would post a ‘perfect date’ recipe. Do you guys get the pun? I am not so good with puns or writing introductions. Since the Ramadan Month is starting tomorrow, Amma suggested that I post a dates recipe. Nowadays it rains quite often but you don’t need a sunny weather to eat popsicle, right? Well at least I don’t think so. Popsicles can be eaten anytime, anywhere. I am the kind of person who eats ice cream when its raining outside.  This is a perfect recipe for people with a sweet tooth. Enough said,  let’s move on to the PERFECT DATE RECIPE. Check out the eggless dates cake recipe and dates kheer recipe too.
