Lime Creamsicles

Lime Creamsicles 1

 I can’t help but feel like summer is coming to an end. It always seems like from the 4th of July until the kiddos head back to school is over in a quick minute. Literally.  As I walk across the hospital’s campus, I bask in the sun and am thankful for the sunny rays as I know how much more snow we see than warm sunshine (on the days it hasn’t rained, of course…).

And then I get a little grouchy because within a few short minutes, I’m back inside and back to work…without a window in sight.

Sad.

 Summer has slipped away from me this year, just as it has every other.

I mean, it’s late July and we’re just getting around to the first popsicle post of the year?!?!?!?! BLASPHEMY!

I realize I was on a soft serve kick for quite some time (including Friday when I celebrated passing my glucose tolerance test with a small soft serve from Dairy Queen), but still. Popsicles are over-due by at least a month. At least.

 I knew with sweetened condensed milk that these would be delicious. Paired with a bunch of lime juice and frozen to a creamy, dreamy treat on a stick? Yeah, if you don’t have a popsicle mold…you now need one.

Yes, need. It’s not a want but a necessity.

At the very least, freeze these babies in some dixie cups with some toothpicks and ENJOY. Summer never tasted this good (for reals).

    How easy are those?! Lime is one of my favorite things – I try to put lime zest in everything, but my hubs isn’t a citrus fan. Not too bad on the carbs either!

    Glad your glucose test went well! :D

    Omg… this is like a key-lime-pie-sicle!! These would be reeeaaallly popular in my house. Although I am a little tempted to swap the condensed milk for Coco Lopez! Thanks for sharing, and congrats on the OGTT ;D

    These look amazing! But for some weird reason, I haven’t been getting the latest emails for August! Or these bad boys?!
