Lime Pie Popsicles

Lime Pie Popsicles |
These particular popsicles are about two years in the making.  I've mentioned my pension for putting things off, have I not?  I finally decided that the time was ideal to put them into motion.  And of course, it took all of five active minutes to mix up the ingredients and get them into the freezer.

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.

Are you geared-up for the summer of the popsicle?  Are you stacking your molds and envisioning what types of popsicles would look best in them?  Are you scouring thrift stores, dollar stores, and every other store for fun new shapes and sizes of molds and sticks?

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!

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

Ingredients (8-10)
  • 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!
