Key Lime Popsicles

My friend really likes key lime pie and since it’s gotten a little too warm for turning on the oven and making pie, I decided to make key lime pie into popsicles.  Since I didn’t have key limes, I just used regular limes. These came out really good. The condensed milk sweetened the popsicles with the tartness of the lime and the slight bitterness of the zest cutting through the sweetness.  These are also super simple to make with only three key ingredients: condensed milk, lime juice and milk

ニューヨークはとても暑いので、オーブンを使うのが余計にアパートが熱くなります。でもライムが残ってたのでパイよりアイスキャンデーを作ることにしました。このアイスキャンデーはとても簡単にできて、とても美味しかったです。ライムの酸っぱさがコンデンスミルクの甘さと会います。

Ingredients:

-1/4 cup condensed milk

-1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice

-1/2 cup whole milk

-lime zest of one lime

-1 tsp salt

Optional

-Graham crumbs

材料:

-コンデンスミルク(60 ml)

-ライムジュース (60 ml)

-牛乳 (150 ml)

-ライムゼスト

-塩 (小さじ1)

-グラハムクラッカー(3枚)

Directions:

  1. Mix together the condensed milk, lime juice, lime zest, milk and salt together in a pourable container like a liquid measuring cup.
  2. Pour the mixture into the popsicle molds.
  3. Chill in the freezer until frozen about 4-8 hours.
  4. Roll in graham crackers crumbs if desired.

作り方:

  1. コンデンスミルク、ライムのゼストとジュース、塩と牛乳を混ぜます。
  2. 混ぜた物をアイスキャンデーの型にいれ、冷凍します。
  3. グラハムクラッカーを潰して、凍ったアイスキャンデーを型から出して、グラハムクラッカーをかけて、出来上がりです。

And that’s about it! Popsicles are super fun to make and since I have some condensed milk left, I can’t wait to try and use that for other popsicles.

Hugs and puppies!

    • Mimi! I bought popsicle molds and they’re so fun! I’ve already made so many since I bought these molds. I made mocha popsicles and vietnamese coffee popsicles this past weekend and I’ve made raspberry lemonade popsicles, berry yogurt smoothie popsicles. It’s a great way to cool down and even if your kids are grown up, they’re still refreshing and delicious!
