Since it is very hot and everybody is complaining about the weather, let the kids (and kids at heart) relax and cool down by eating something cool and icy. To beat the summer heat, one can opt for an easy to serve ice cream from the friendly neighborhood grocery or make a cold snack at home like for example, halo-halo, ice candy or fruity pops. In my case, I don't think it's a good idea to spoil my kid by allowing her always eat unhealthy sweets. As much as possible, I try to prepare them myself at home. By doing so, I get to save money and I am sure my daughter eat healthily.
For today, I'm going to share how to make your own healthy ice pops.
I have here mango, avocado and papaya popsicle.
That's papaya popsicle she's holding. Hmmm.. delicious!
Noticed that my daughter looks younger in the photo? Hihihi. That's because these photos are from last year. This is a long over overdue post which I intentionally reserve for the summer. Anyhoo, let's get down to business now. Here's my popsicle recipe.
You Will Need:
-1 cup sliced fruit of your choice
-1 cup evaporated milk
-1/2 cup heavy cream or plain yogurt
-sugar to taste
-Put everything in a blender.
-Blend until smooth.
-Pour the blended mixture in a popsicle mold.
-Freeze until set and enjoy.
Note: If you have excess of the blended fruit mixture, you can use it for ice candy. All you have to do it pour the remaining to an ice candy plastic, then freeze as well.
