the summer heat has finally decided to hit Chicago! thank god. we were freezing our butts off over here. the thing is, here in Chi-town we can go from freezing to dripping sweat in 0.00002 seconds. it's pretty amazing, actually. so, to prevent melting at all costs, why not make some smoothies popsicles?
CHOCOLATE RASPBERRY (or STRAWBERRY)
(if you want to use strawberries instead of raspberries, or use both, just substitute them in.) first, gather all supplies and ingredients. (not pictured above: chocolate chips, milk, blender, measuring cups). measure out 1 cups of raspberries, 1/2 cup of milk, and 1 cup of yogurt. blend them together in the blender and sample. if it is not to your liking, add more of any ingredient, to taste. once you are satisfied with the taste, add and blend in 1/4 or 1/2 chocolate chips. (or even more, if you really love chocolate that much. it's ok, i do too.)
after blending all ingredients, pour into popsicle mold and freeze. the popsicles should be frozen in and hour to an hour and a half. when it is completely frozen, run the mold under hot water and the pop should slip right out. enjoy!
once again, gather all ingredients and supplies. (YOU CAN USE FROZEN PEACHES/MANGOS IF DESIRED) (not pictured above: vanilla, measuring cups, blender.) measure and add 1 cup of yogurt, 1 cup of mangos, and 1 1/2 cup of peaches. blend. add a splash of vanilla to taste. pour into popsicle mold and freeze. it should again take about an hour. run mold under hot water. enjoy!
see? bloggers don't do everything perfect. ^^
i hope the popsicles help you cool off in these coming summer months. they're also great for kiddos, too! xo. Molly
