Momsicles

photo from http://melssweetlife.wordpress.com/

I love popsicles because they are cheap and they make little kids happy.  :)  I have my own version for post-pubescent women, which I came up with on a whim from an iced coffee recipe.  Post-pubescent, because they contain chocolate, and everyone knows real women need chocolate.  The coffee is just thrown in for an added bonus. 

Next time you are pouring Kool-Aid (okay, juice, for you healthy people) into your popsicle molds, save one for yourself.  I keep this treasure mixed up in the fridge in a half-gallon jug:

Iced Coffee
2 C warm water
3 T instant coffee
14 oz can (1 C) fat free sweetened condensed milk
2 C milk
2-4 T chocolate syrup
Mix together and store in fridge.  Shake before pouring.
To make one tall serving, whip 1 C in blender with 5-6 ice cubes.  Sip joyfully.

Or
make Momsicles:
Pour into popsicle molds and freeze.
Indulge yourself while the kids are running around the yard
with the colored sugar-water variety.

  2. Ooooooh that sounds delicious! (I love iced coffee - but I've just been buying it in the carton at the grocery store. This sounds much more cost effective.)
