Balsamic Black Pepper Strawberry Peach Popsicles

Tiffany Bannworth


You may be surprised by the unique flavors incorporated into this rather sophisticated popsicle, but independently reduced balsamic vinegar and black pepper intensify the fruity flavor of the strawberries. So together, they knock it out of the park.

I recommend rotating out the second fruit to continually interest your palate.

Impress your friends. Serve this at your next poolside gathering!
