These Thai spice popsicles are NOT your kids’ popsicles! (But you will love them anyways!)
We were at a music festival a few weeks ago, and there was this popsicle vendor that had the most unusual popsicle flavor. Thai spice.
This popsicle was sweet with a hint of spice, definitely not something a kid would order!
I was so intrigued I had to ask what was in this popsicle. The first thing he said was galangal root (what the heck is that?). Other ingredients were lemongrass, chili spice, curry, turmeric, and a few other fun ingredients.
When I got home I googled galangal root. As a food blogger, I really thought I knew most spices. This one had me stumped. If you look in the photo above, that paper looking thing on the plate is the galangal root. I found a bag of dried galangal root at our Asian grocery store, Lion Supermarket. Galangal is related to ginger, which gives these popsicles their unusual flavor.
Check out all of the fun things I found. Lychees, dragon fruit, longdon berries, and rambuton. If you look in the top right, you will see the bag of dried galangal root.
It took awhile to perfect these…I hope you will find these as good as we did. These pops are both gluten free and vegan.

Things You Need To Make This Recipe:
- A fun popsicle mold. Just pour in your liquid, pop in the top, and freeze.
- Dried Galangal. This looks odd, but if you cook it in water, it makes an awesome gingerish flavor.
