Ginger Red Bean Popsicles – plus a Giveaway!

Ginger Red Bean Popsicles from Kathy Hester's 'Great Vegan Bean Book' on plus a giveaway

 I’ve been drooling through Kathy Hester’s newest book, The Great Vegan Bean Book, for over a month now since it’s release and I can’t stop contemplating which recipe to try out next.  I’ve already made the wonderfully spicy Sloppy Buffalo Beans.  Twice actually.  That burger is so quick and simple to make up on a busy night.  I love it!

 But today, I’m sharing the sweeter side of beans.  Ginger Red Bean Popsicles.  They are uniquely flavored for a dessert, especially a popsicle.  Leave it to Kathy to come up with unusual flavors and bean recipes.  The Bean paste is simple to cook up and stores well in the fridge or freezer so you can make up some of these pops in a flash.  In minutes really once you have the paste made.  Just a few simple ingredients to have on hand and you’ve got a lovely simple pallet cleanser after lunch, dinner, heck I’ve had two of them for breakfast already today.  Really fun getting your protein in each day from such a delicious frozen treat.

      The molds are very cool. I like when I’m surprised something actually works better than advertised. I made a quart jar of the pop sicle syrup and I’ve been filling up the molds 2 or 3 times per day and then storing the frozen ones. I also made up some of the fudge recipe and added bing cherry slices into those pops. If you do get it, make sure to put the sticks in first before the liquid. It’s nice to have the mold flat like that so you can add in things to the liquid without waiting for the mold to freeze up some first. Have a good one 😉

    Love this recipe! We Aussies are all about the Asian cuisine and have been ladling it into our craws for quite some time now. This couples my love of red bean paste with my love of frozen ice treats…I wonder if you churned this what you would get? Have you tried? I wonder if you added a bit of Matcha if it would intensify the flavour of the red bean? I wonder if you used other beans (like black beans for purple or cannellini beans for creamy white) if they would make amazing different flavoured bean pastes? Now I am excited! I would love to enter the draw but alas, my sheer unmitigated overseas “Aussieness” has rendered my entry extinct before I apply it. I am just going to have to write my own damned vegan cookbook! 😉

      So sorry your on the other side of the world Fran…I’d love to hang out with someone who gets as excited as me over things like the endless possibilities of beans. I haven’t churned it. The past was smooth enough from the blender and adding in the coconut milk really gave it a liquid pudding texture before freezing. I used Adzukis but black may be fine too….they’d make a ‘Punky’ pop sicle eh? Wonder if it would turn your lips black too? Get working on that book Girl ;0

        What if…you made 2 batches. One with black beans and one with white. You then swirled the 2 together in popsicle moulds? YUM! Or you dipped that popsicle in homemade chocolate shell? You could drizzle several different kinds of chocolate over the top? I am all over this one and its -3C outside…I think the early mornings might have given me brain freeze 😉

    Would loooove to win this book. I adore beans — cook and eat them all the time — but don’t have any creative ways to use them. Popsicles certainly would never have occurred to me as a use for them. Have just discovered your blog and can hardly wait to try out that lemon curd pie and browse through your other postings — thank you!

    I’d love to win the book because it seems there are many highly inventive ways of adding beans to one’s diet, and I’m always looking for options to replace animal-proteins in my diet.
