During the hot summer months (It’s pretty hot here in Metro Detroit!) everyone is looking for yummy ways to cool down. Here is an idea for something a little different. These Icebox Pops are cold and light – perfect for a hot summer day. You can make them as a healthy breakfast idea, sweet afternoon treat or a tasty refreshing dessert. They taste great and are really easy to make.
I normally make these as blueberry shakes with COOL WHIP topping and a sprinkle of cinnamon, but I thought I would try to make a frozen version this time around. In addition to the ingredients listed you will also need small paper cups and wooden popsicle sticks to assemble these treats.
2 cups frozen or fresh blueberries
1 ½ cup vanilla bean ice cream
¼ cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Whirl all the ingredients together in the blender until well mixed. I do not add any sugar to this recipe but you can if you prefer. Set in refrigerator while you make the other mixture.
Creamy COOL WHIP Layer
1 – 8 ounce tub of COOL WHIP
1 box of Jello white chocolate instant pudding mix (3.3 ounce size)
1 cup milk
Use a wire whisk to mix the milk and pudding mix together. Then fold in the COOL WHIP. Stir until smooth and creamy.
I used 6 small paper cups (the kiddie size water cups work best) to freeze the pops in. Begin by putting a few spoons full of the blueberry mixture in the bottom of the cup, then a few spoons full of the creamy COOL WHIP mixture followed by the last layer of blueberries. Then place a wooden stick in the center and place in freezer for a few hours. Once the cups have hardened, cut a small part of the cups rim and peel the paper off. You could even place some fresh or frozen berries in the bottom of the cup before layering the mixtures for a really special treat!
