We are a household that adores, nay, obsesses over ice cream and frozen treats. So much so that I can't really keep ice cream in the house because someone (it's not the fur children, so I think we all know what that means) will maul it. But when I had some Williams Sonoma cash to spend, I found these popsicle molds calling my name. Think of the possibilities! Think of the frozen goodies! And of course I jumped at the chance to use them ASAP. This recipe for low-fat frozen popsicles filled with raspberries and mint is a super easy way to lighten up a tempting dessert. It's a go-to for brides who want the sweet, but healthy option without the extra junk in a packaged product!
California Dairy products (sold all over, not just in CA!) are packed with protein to keep you full and also have calcium benefits. And while calcium is important for healthy teeth and bones, the B vitamins and protein in milk as a whole are absolutely the bomb dot com for your metabolism and building healthy hair. Dairy is pretty cool.
Low-Fat Raspberry Mint Popsicles
makes 4 delicious bites of wonder
/// Ingredients ///
- 1.5 cups California low fat dairy milk (look for the seal on the package - see link below)
- 75 grams sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 3 tablespoons chopped mint
- 1/4 cup raspberries
/// Directions ///
Add California low fat milk, sugar and vanilla to a bowl or large measuring cup and stir to combine and dissolve sugar. To the popsicle molds, add a few raspberries and pieces of mint to each, pour in the milk mixture and add the remaining mint and raspberries. Place the stick in the mold and freeze until solid (an excruciating 8 hours...do them the night before so you don't wait!). Remove from mold and enjoy!
