Summer Popsicles

Rose Crush and Orange Cream

Summer used to be such a simple time. I know every adult looks back on their childhood – and especially the summers – and thinks that it was such a different time then. But I think that’s a true reflection of our times!

I never had a lot of friends growing up, but summer for me was always full of sunscreen, beach towels, chapter books, and chorine. Even when I grew up and got my first job, it was still full of all these things because I was a lifeguard.

The best thing on those hot, humid days of summer was reaching in the freezer and pulling out a popsicle. It was even better if you could combine that with the sun-filled taste of a freshly blended Orange Julius Original.

That’s where I got the first idea for these popsicles. I’ve been making my own Juliuses at home for a long time. So that recipe and these fun popsicle molds that I uncovered last winter when I organized my house sparked a creation. Yum.

Ingredients
1/2 can of frozen orange juice concentrate
1/2 cup of milk
1/2 cup of cold water
1 tsp vanilla

Instructions
Combine all the ingredients and mix well.
(If you’re really particular about texture, use a stick blender).
Pour into Betchsicles molds (or any popsicle molds).
Freeze overnight.

And of course, it wouldn’t be a Baltimore blog without a recipe for a mimosa type popsicle.

This is a play on mimosa or an orange crush with Rose. Definitely more alcohol than anything else. Be aware!
