Inspired by Naruto: Shippuden, I’m making the popsicle that Jiraiya shares with Naruto. There are multiple moments throughout the show where they share a popsicle together but I always think of a specific one from Shippuden… After Naruto learns of Jiraiyas death, he thinks back on the time where they shared the popsicle. Since these scenes are so emotional to look back on, I really wanted to recreate them.
I decided to make Milkis popsicles since I thought the icy sweet yogurt/milky flavour would make for a refreshing and yummy treat. So using ONLY 1 INGREDIENT and some food colouring, you can recreate this iconic treat yourself!
I also made some homemade strawberry boba to add into the popsicle to bring an extras burst of flavour and texture. In this process, I learned that you cant use traditional boba for this or else they will turn out hard and icy. The tapioca starch doesn’t freeze well, so I made the boba out of glutinous rice flour and created more of a strawberry mochi ball to mimic traditional boba. This way, they came out bouncy and chewy even after being frozen.
These milkis popsicles are so easy to make and really yummy, there’s no reason not to try it out. Plus, it’s nice to create something so sweet from such a memorable and emotional scene. Jiraiya and Naruto had a really wonderful and special relationship. I’m happy to make something to represent it!
