Listen friends I don’t know about you but summer is in full swing here in Texas and by full swing I mean ultra hot. We basically live in a rainforest and sweat from the moment we get up until the moment we go to sleep-and then in our sleep too.
So my toddler basically eats pepperoni and ice cream. We all know about the Blue Bell disaster of 2015. It has hit us hard. I’ve been looking at ways to get her to eat some variety!
I super love creamsicles…when we were little McDonald’s had a creamsicle shake and it was amazing…I mean so amazing. That dream is over. I decided to give it a try and make homemade creamsicle pops for my Row.
vanilla ice cream-we used vanilla bean
I left the ice cream out for about 5 minutes before making so that it would be more melty. I was hoping to attain an ice cream throughout pop instead of solid chunks and gobs of orange juice. Grab a plastic pop mold. Fill each mold with ice cream and orange juice alternating. Top off with orange juice at the end. That’s it! Two ingredients and not that bad!
Row was pretty pleased with them and ate a tiny bit in between her nightly water play. Row says-messy hair-don’t care.
Hunter Bear, Grandma and I ate one. I thought they came out pretty good. Oh and let’s not even play these were so beyond easy!
What I would have done….stuffed those babies with tons of ice cream next time and then poured the orange juice at the end. I liked having the ice cream a little melty because when you pour the orange juice into the mold the ice cream disperses more.
What flavor would you like to make?
On a side note I am completely jealous of my friend Jennifer because she has one of those super cool pops machines…I need one…
