So what do I want when I finally make it home? Ice Cream!! But if I had ice cream every time it was hot in Houston, well, let's just say I would need to invest in several pairs of sweat pants. A healthier alternative is popsicles!
Right as the weather turned from warm to miserable, I bought a set of popsicle molds. I think I spent $20, but I've used them a lot! It was a great investment. You can mix and match any flavors and make it as healthy (or as decadent) as you want.
I had a couple of overripe bananas, so I blended them up with some frozen pineapple, some reduced sugar OJ and some Splenda. You could probably omit the Splenda, but I feel like it adds a little sweetness so I feel like I'm getting a treat.
Pour the liquidy concoction into the mold and let it freeze. Three hours later, you'll have a cool treat! The best part is each of these pops is only 30 calories!
What's your favorite freezer treat? Know any good popsicle recipes?
