Mint Oreo Popsicles

At its outset, summer seems so long and lazy and full of endless possibility. My birthday falls at the end of July and I’m this season’s baby through and through: the summer months are my absolute favourites and, as August draws in, I start to get twitchy about the darker evenings, the slowing of the sunshine and the way summer produce slowly begins to disappear from the shops. Sometimes I have to remind myself to live in the moment and enjoy each sunny day and outdoor dinner for what they’re worth.

Ice cream, incidentally, isn’t something I feel needs to be constrained to the summer months, but I’m definitely more inclined to want something cool and creamy for dessert when its warm outside. When Oreo got in touch while I was on holiday in Italy to see if I could develop a recipe using their brand new Mint Oreo flavour, I knew that an icy treat was on the cards. Mint Oreo Popsicles

If you’re looking for an easy summer dessert that will appeal to children and big kids alike, these three ingredient popsicles are just the ticket. Crushed Mint Oreo cookies are folded into coconut milk with a dash of vanilla before being frozen til firm. Coconut milk stays nice and creamy when frozen, making it a tasty and healthy alternative to dairy and a whole Oreo cookie hidden in the centre of each popsicle makes for a fun – and delicious – surprise as you take a bite.

The brand new Mint Oreo flavour makes for wonderfully cool and refreshing popsicles, but this recipe can also be made with the new Strawberry Cheesecake Oreos. If making the latter, try folding in a handful of fresh strawberries for an even more luxurious alternative. If you don’t have popsicle moulds, try freezing the mixture in little plastic glasses.
