The weather is getting warmer, the trees are getting greener, and the sun is shining a bit brighter. That means summer must be on its way! It is time to whip out those popsicle molds, wipe the dust off, and put them to good use. If you are looking for a fun fruity treat that will make you feel like a kid again, keep reading!

Ingredients:

  • Your favorite fruit juice
  • Sour gummy worms

Take your popsicle mold and stick the gummy worms to the insides of the molds. This keeps the worms from sinking to the bottom. Next, pour your juice into the molds. Stick them in the freezer for a few hours, or all night. Next time you are sweating up a storm outside, go grab one of these fun treats and enjoy cooling down in the sweetest way possible.

Don’t have popsicle molds? Just use mini paper cups and popsicle sticks!

XOXO, Chels

Popsicles are my favorite summer snack.  Whether you want sweet, fruity, or chocolatey, you can find a popsicle to satisfy your craving!  I’ve came across a few mouthwatering recipes that look absolutely delicious that I wanted to share with all of my fellow popsicle lovers!

  1. Tutti-Frutti Ice Pops.  For these you’ll need: a ½ cup of sliced strawberries, a ½ cup of sliced peaches, a ½ cup of blueberries, 2 sliced kiwis, and 1½ cups of coconut water.  You’ll need six ½-cup popsicle molds to divide your fruit among evenly.  Pour in the coconut water, place in popsicle sticks, and freeze your pops for 5+ hours. Chelsea Crockett - Nutella Pops Then enjoy!
  2. Sweet Tea Pops.  This may be the simplest treat to make.  All you need is to purchase your favorite sweet tea (mine is Gold Peak!) or make your own.  Then pour it into the molds, set popsicle sticks in, and set them in the freezer for a few hours!  So simple yet so delicious!
  3. Nutella Cool Whip Popsicles.  All you need for these is: a ¼ cup of Nutella, 1 cup of milk, and 1 cup of cool whip.  Combine the milk and cool whip together in a mixer then whisk in the Nutella.  Pour them into the mold, place in the popsicle sticks, and freeze for 6-10 hours!

Side note: If you’re having trouble getting the popsicles out of the mold, run cool water over the frozen popsicles or run warm water over the back of the mold.  Both should help your pops slide out much easier!

Which one do you want to try for yourself?  Let me know below!

Enjoy! – Chels

Although summer is coming to a close that doesn’t mean that the warm weather is done with its smothering assault on us. It stays warm where I live wellll into September, so I am going to take advantage of it as long as I can, and that means whipping up sweet cold treats. Here is one of my fav cold recipes: Nutella fudgesicles! Fudgesicles are fudge popsicles. Here is how to whip yourself up a batch!

Ingredients:red-nutella-pop_250

  • 1 ½ cup whole milk
  • 1 tbsp corn starch
  • ¼ cup & 2 tbsp Nutella
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened coca powder
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract

Put the milk and corn starch in a saucepan and stir until the starch is dissolved. Place the mixture over medium heat and add the Nutella and cocoa powder. Stir it frequently so that it doesn’t stick to the bottom. Heat it for about 5 minutes or until the mixture thickens and then take it off of the heat. Stir in the vanilla and let the mixture cool for 5 minutes while stirring frequently. Once it has cooled pour the mixture into the molds and freeze it for 6 hours or more. When you are ready to devour them, hold the mold under warm water to help the fudsicles come loose.

These sound like heaven! Woud YOU try these fudgy pops?

XOXO, Chels

Summer is so close I can almost taste it… that is the endless amount of ice cream and popsicles I’m going to eat! Oops! I searched on Pinterest for a recipe that would give me a great tasting popsicle that wouldn’t make me feel guilty after eating it. Soooo… here is an amazing recipe that you can easily make at home!

First, you’ll need to purchase a popsicle mold for your treats to freeze in. Then, while you’re at the store, pick up your favorite kind of yogurt Chelsea Crockett - Berry Popsicles(it can even be Greek!). I suggest a simple vanilla, low-fat kind. It’s healthier and you won’t have to worry about the taste of your fruits clashing with it. Next, grab about three different types of fruits. The recipe on Pinterest calls for strawberries, kiwis, and blueberries, but you can substitute something out for any of them!

Lastly, slightly fill your molds with a little yogurt and slide down whatever fruits you want in each. Let them freeze for a few hours (I prefer overnight) and then you can dig in! You can even serve them with granola for some extra flavor!

Enjoy! – Chelsea

Cookies and Cream Popsicles

Milk and Oreos. What a match made in heaven. Even better? Cookies and cream ice cream. Even BETTER? Cookies and cream popsicles! If you are like me and you live in a place where summers are totally squelching, you are in constant need of a cool-down treat. I have just the thing to cool your jets!photo-2 copy

Ingredients:

–       4 oz fat free cream cheese, softened

–       4 oz fat free plain Greek Yogurt

–       ¼ cup fat free milk

–       2 tbsp powdered sugar

–       6 Oreos, crushed

Combine the cream cheese, yogurt, powdered sugar, and milk together in a bowl until the mixture is creamy and smooth. Once your ingredients are thoroughly mixed, stir in the crushed Oreos. An (and fun) way to crush the Oreos is to grab a gallon sized Ziploc baggy, toss the cookies inside, seal it nice and tight, and then take a wooden spoon to the bag. Crush those cookies, and crush ‘em good! Whack them with the spoon to your heart’s intent. This is also a good way to let off some steam, I might add. So, anyway, after you have added the crushed cookies to the mixture pour it into popsicle molds. Place the molds in the freezer, and boom you’re done!

I am so excited to try this quick and easy (and frosty) version my favorite midnight snack, Oreos and milk!

XOXO, Chels

Popsicle Treats for Summer

            Hello girls!  With the hot, sunny weather that comes along with summer, you’ll need something to cool you off.  What’s a better way to do so than a cool, yummy snack?  One of my favorite summer treats are popsicles.  Although most contain large amounts of sugar, there are a few do-it-yourself recipes that are healthy and just as good!  Here is one of them.

            Chelsea Crockett -Yogurt PopsiclesA delicious substitution for popsicles is a yogurt pop.  They’re easy to make and taste great!  All you need is a container of your favorite yogurt.  Then cut a small line in the top of the yogurt and place a wooden stick for holding inside.  Make sure the yogurt cups are narrower at the bottom than the top.  Then, set them on a flat surface inside your freezer for an hour or two until they become frozen.  After you take them out, run the outside of the container under warm water and the yogurt pop should slip right out!  Yum!

            Another creative way to make popsicles for the sugar lovers out there is with Kool Aid.  Make a jar of your favorite flavor of Kool Aid.  For the next step, you’ll need popsicle molds to put your Kool Aid in.  Once you have them, pour in your Kool Air and put plastic wrap over the top.  Set them in the freezer until it becomes solid enough to hold a wooden stick in place.  Put it back in the freezer until they become frozen.  Once they’re solid, take them out and enjoy!      

            These are only a couple do-it-yourself recipes and there are many more to try out!  Enjoy!
