|This one was filled a little skimpy. It's frozen.|
5 ounce sweetened condensed milk*
1 cup Orange mango juice
1 teaspoon lime or lemon juice
10 one ounce plastic shot glasses
10 four inch bamboo skewers
10 two inch square foil pieces
* The amount is an estimate since that's how much I had left of the condensed milk. It was a little beneath halfway mark between 1/2 cup and 2/3 cup.
|This is what it looks like when holding the bamboo skewer.|
The portion was perfect for after meal dessert for a young child. When the girls were eating my ice pops, they said: "Mommy, the kind that the company made is not as good as yours." We buy the non-creamy fruit popsicle, so the creaminess is not there. Still, it's hard not to feel accomplished somewhat after hearing that from your kids, wouldn't you say?
With the success of the first try, maybe I'll venture out to try some other flavors.
By the way, the plastic container is easy to crack if you aren't careful when squeezing it to wiggle the ice pop out, after it's thawed a bit. I know 'cause I've cracked 3 so far. I think a paper form of the container would be more ideal, but it might be hard to find it in such a small size. Well, good luck with your endeavor and wish you success!
