Guest Post: Summertime Means Popsicles

I’m so excited to write my first ever guest blog post! I was very flattered to be asked and the first thing that came to mind was “Slow Drip Fudge Pops”. I started making “slow drip pops” for my daughter last year and she loves them. I love that they hold up well in the summer heat. You can get creative with homemade popsicles by mixing and matching different fruits, yogurt, and juices. Mix in some chamomile tea with fruit juice for a teething baby. I like that I can control the amount of sugar in the popsicles and I can also avoid nasty artificial dyes and flavors.

This recipe can be made with almond or rice milk but I happened to have left over organic whole milk from making yogurt so I used that. You could even live on the wild side and use heavy cream or half and half. It will be our secret.

Homemade Fudgepops

2 cups milk
1/2 cup cocoa powder
2/3 cup of sugar (or add to taste)
1 tsp vanilla
1 package Knoxx gelatin

In a medium sauce pan heat all the ingredients and stir until sugar and gelatin has dissolved and cocoa powder has been incorporated well. Cool slightly before adding to the popsicle molds. Makes 6-10 pops depending on your type of molds.

There you go! The gelatin is the secret. It keeps the liquid from dripping!

I hope everyone has a safe and blessed Summer!
