Mixed Berry Ice Pops

 

Happy Tasty Tuesday Readers!  I don't know what the weather is like in your neck of the woods but I will tell you that today it was hot over here!   So naturally, I didn't want to cook up anything that might make the apartment even hotter.  Fortunately, since I had a popsicle mold, I was able to make this easy-to-make and refreshing treat.
I want to share something exciting with you - I recently ran my first 5 mile race!  What a great way to work on transitioning to running 10k races.   

EDIT: I recently spoke to some colleagues about today's blog post.  Apparently, I have created quite the controversy since several of them thought my recipe would be more adequately described as a creamsicle, while I thought the popsicle was more the general family and creamsicles and fudgesicles were members of same.   Concerned that I misrepresented my creation to my readers, I did some internet research on the subject.  An initial google search revealed that a popsicle is frozen ice or ice cream on a stick.   Apparently, creamsicles are most likely to be cream-based (made of ice cream).   So I don't think that added specificity works with my "sicle."  It should be noted that my research indicated there is a small chance that this recipe is akin to a dreamsicle which apparently can be milk-based.  In order to eliminate the confusion, I have renamed my post, as noted above.  Any thoughts?

Also, during the month of May, please vote for my photo entry on the Food Stories Blog.  Thank you!


Now without further ado, the recipe...

Ingredients:
  • 3/4 cup of skim milk
  • 1/2 can of condensed milk
  • 1/2 - 3/4 cup of mixed berries, frozen or fresh

1. Pour  ingredients into blender.
2. Liquify ingredients until smooth.
3. Pour into popsicle molds or dixie cups with a popsicle stick.
4. Place popsicles into freezer for four hours (or as indicated by your popsicle mold).
5. Enjoy!
