Why is it that ice cream takes four hours to freeze but only four minutes to melt? Taking photos of ice cream is sort of a challenge, to say the least. You have about three minutes before everything turns saucy.
Popsicles. The heat made me do it. I had three hours of mowing ahead so I knew I would need something cold and refreshing. I don’t have an ice cream maker but I have plastic popsicle molds. So I whipped up these Strawberry Cream Popsicles. They are refreshing, fruity and perfect for summer.
Making your own popsicles is fun, it’s easy and in terms of flavors, the possibilities are truly endless. The kinds of popsicles you can make are limited only by your imagination or by what you have in your fridge. On that particular day I had strawberries, yogurt and whipping cream and figured these ingredients would make some sort of frozen yogurt/ice cream treat. These popsicles aren’t overly sweet but they are creamy and the strawberry flavor is so refreshing and delicious.
