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.
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).
- 1⅔ cups nonfat milk
- ½ cup fresh lime juice (from about 6 limes)
- 1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
- Whisk together ingredients in a medium bowl until well-combined.
- Distribute the mixture between each of 10 popsicle mold wells and freeze for about 15-20 minutes. Remove from freezer to insert popsicle sticks two-thirds of the way into the tops of each popsicle and freeze for an additional 6-8 hours or until frozen. Allow to defrost slightly for 5-10 minutes before removing from popsicle mold to serve.
This week looks crazy busy and long…waaah. Let’s do it.
