Strawberry Mint Cookies and Cream Popsicles
Can you believe that summer is coming to an end? How is that even possible when it’s 97 degrees out?!
I’m scared to put the stove or the oven on because I’d hate to add more unnecessary circulating heat to the house. I mean the AC is constantly on but every time I head into the kitchen and make something really quick, like a fried egg, I’m sweating balls!
So what better way to cool off in this disgusting heat than with these super easy homemade popsicles? It takes just 5 minutes to make, and they make for an incredibly refreshing dessert option, or breakfast for some.
It’s a wonderful twist off the traditional cookies and cream popsicles as I substituted the mint creme Oreo cookies, and then I added some fresh strawberries to give it that refreshing kick.
Diving into these babies is a sure way to beat the summer heat.
If you don’t have a popsicle maker, have no fear! I’m giving away a set of 6 popsicle molds! (See below.)
I know I’ve said this a million times before but I just have to say it again – I am so grateful to be part of such a wonderful foodie community. You guys are so awesome, from your “get well” wishes when I had strep throat to the encouragement and understanding when I’m just so incredibly stressed with food blogging. You guys rock!
That being said, I just had to do a giveaway and after much brainstorming, I figured a set of 6 popsicle molds would be best, especially in this dying heat!
