Pandan Popsicles

IMG_20130310_152816

Green is a great colour; I like it a lot. Limes are green, kale is green, avocados are green, pesto is green, and generally it’s good to go green. And pandan, a plant used a lot in Southeast Asian cooking (often alongside coconut), is green.

That said, I will very rarely pick up green candy, green ice cream or green popsicles, because in these cases, green usually indicates mint or fake lime or green apple flavour. But recently some friends brought some green popsicles from a little Vietnamese deli in Vancouver. They were a very pale green, and flavoured with coconut and pandan. I was in heaven.
