Popsicles for You, Popsicles for Me!

There is no better time for popsicles than summer!  Popsicles are the perfect way to cool off from the summer heat.  It is so easy to make all different kinds of these summer treats, from fruit to yogurt, the options are endless.  Here are two yummy recipes for popsicles.....one for the kids and one for you! 

For the Kids:
Oreo Pudding Popsicles
2 boxes instant vanilla pudding mix
4 C. milk
1 C. crushed oreo cookies
1-2 C. Whipped Cream
Small disposable cups or popsicle molds
Popsicle sticks or straws

Place pudding and milk in bowl, mix well. Fold in whipped cream. Add crushed cookies and stir well. Put in disposable cups or popsicle molds and add a stick or straw. Freeze at least 3 hrs or overnight. Run cup under hot water for a few seconds to release (be sure not to get the popsicle wet!:)). Enjoy! You can use sugar-free pudding, skim milk, and fat-free whipped topping to make it low-fat and calorie. :)

And for Mom:
Mocha Latte Popsicles
2 cups strong cold coffee
2/3 cup sweetened condensed milk
1 1/2 Tablespoon cocoa powder
Whisk together, pour into molds, and freeze.
Cream layer
1/3 cup heavy cream
1 Tablespoon sweetened condensed milk
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
Whisk together, layer, and freeze.  

The cream layer has an ice cream texture that makes this popsicle delightful.  I don't use that word often but it applies here.
