Root Beer Float Popsicles

Sorry, no picture. But HELLO SUMMER! And YUM.

Recipe from SmileMonsters.

1 can (or 1 1/2 cups) root beer
1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk*

Mix, pour, freeze, lick.

*I made my own for this recipe using 1/3 cup sugar, 1/3 cup dry milk, 1 t butter and 1/4 cup HOT water blended very well. This isn’t the recipe to make REAL sweetened condensed milk, but it works perfect for this recipe.

Watermelon Popsicles

It’s raining today, but we have a big ol’ bucket of watermelon in the fridge that isn’t going to last much longer.  When Costco gives you a large watermelon, make watermelon popsicles.

Make a simple syrup with 1/2 cup water and 1/2 cup sugar, and cook on the stovetop just until the sugar is dissolved.  Put the simple syrup in a blender with 4 cups of cubed watermelon.  Give it a whirl and freeze in your popsicle molds.
