Memorial Day Sweet Treat (and perfect Tote)

May 24, 2014

 

This long weekend calls for water, warmth, and sunshine. Whether you are claiming your spot in the sand at the beach, splashing in the pool, or hosting a BBQ, embrace the sunshine and the long weekend with a new summer treat recipe.

We are loving these Key Lime Pie Popsicles. We suggest adding a graham cracker crust as an extra bonus for finishing the whole thing. :) But we all know that’s not hard to do with these scrumptious frozen treats that are sweet and tart at the same time.

Looking for the perfect tote?

If you’re looking for a stylish, yet functional bag to tote your frozen treats this weekend, we suggest the Market Tote. It boasts organizational slip pockets on the inside, two exterior pockets on the outside, and a hard bottom in case you’re a shameless over packer.

Key Lime Pie Popsicles

Makes 10 or more popsicles depending on mold size

Popsicles

* 2 cups Greek-style plain yogurt

* 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons key lime simple syrup

* 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

* 1/2 cup crushed graham crackers

 

Key Lime Simple Syrup

* 1/2 cup water

* 1/2 cup key lime juice

* 1/2 cup sugar (or honey)

 

Make the Simple Syrup
In a medium saucepan heat the water, lime juice, and sugar until the sugar has dissolved. If using honey, heat until the mixture simmers. Remove from the heat and allow to cool.

Make the Popsicles
Mix together the yogurt, 1 cup key lime simple syrup, and the vanilla until smooth. Pour into popsicle molds. In a small bowl, mix the graham cracker crumbs with remaining simple syrup until moistened. Carefully spoon about 1 tablespoon of crumbs onto the bottom of each popsicle mold over the yogurt. Press lightly to secure. Insert sticks or tops to the molds and freeze until stiff.

To unmold, run under warm water for 10-20 seconds, as needed. Serve immediately.
