The resulting popsicle is both creamy and delightfully tangy at the same time. Basically, it tastes like...well...lime pie. Lime Icebox Pie, to be exact. Plus, I think they're kinda beautiful - downy white with green flecks. With a bit of rustic charm thrown in in the form of cookie crumbs.
What...that's just me!? Well, I hope the excitement is contagious, because I cannot wait to see your fun, creative frozen concoctions over the next 4 or 5 months!
Lime Pie Popsicles
Prep Time: 5 minutes (+ time to freeze)
Cook Time: n/a
Keywords: snack dessert vegetarian nut-free limes sweetened condensed milk Cinco de Mayo July 4th popsicles American Mexican summer
- 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
- 1 cup half & half
- 3/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice (this was 6 small limes for me)
- 2-3 teaspoons lime zest (grated finely on a microplane)
- pinch of fine sea salt
- Maria cookies, crumbled and crushed (or graham crackers)
Combine all ingredients except cookies in a bowl and whisk together until they are thoroughly combined.
Divide amongst your popsicle molds and freeze until solid, at least 5 hours. Add your popsicle sticks at the correct time for your molds.
When ready to serve, let the pops sit out at room temperature for a few minutes to let the outside just start to soften and get "tacky". Press each side of the popsicles in the cookie crumbs and enjoy!
