Kiwi & Oreo Cream Popsicles {Creamsicles} Recipe #AmazingZespri

Sometimes it gets so hot around here that all I want to do is sit in front of a fan and eat popsicles all day. Don't you feel the same way too? :P Looking around my kitchen, I saw that we had kiwifruits and Oreo cookies lying around so decided to whip up some Kiwi Oreo Cream Popsicles {Creamsicles}.. sooooo good and it was a hit with the boy & Lil Pumpkin too!

There's a bit of tanginess as the kiwifruits weren't fully ripened, but I like the contrast between that and the sweet chocolate :) A very interesting blend. These are definitely kids-friendly and make a great snack for all kinds of summer parties and backyard picnics too. 

Prep time:
About 4-5 hours

Ingredients:
3 kiwifruits {green or gold}
4 Oreo biscuits
1.5 cup vanilla ice-cream
1 cup milk

Directions:
  1. Scoop 2.5 of kiwifruits flesh into the blender. Distribute the remaining kiwifruits flesh evenly into the bottom of your popsicle moulds.
  2. Place the rest of the ingredients into the blender.
  3. Blend until desired consistency.
  4. Pour the mixture into the popsicle moulds and freeze until solid.
  5. Serve cold.
Tips:
  • Serving seize depends on your mould. If you don't own a popsicle mould, use mini disposable cups and flat wooden spoons.
  • Use both green and gold kiwis for a beautiful mix of colour. Zespri Green kiwis are in season May - November, while Zespri Gold kiwis are in season May - October.
  • To hasten ripening, put the kiwifruits in a plastic bag with apples and/or bananas 
  • For a more intense chocolate flavour, use chocolate ice-cream instead of vanilla.

It does sound good!

So far this summer I've made homemade pudding pops with tofu added for one cup of milk. Then strawberry shortcake pops; I chopped up shortcake and strawberries then mixed it with vanilla pudding. Then Juice Pops; I put in cranberries with cranberry juice and peaches with orange juice. The boys loved them at the beginning of the summer. Now they won't touch them! I still have some in the freezer. I think I may have over done it at the beginning of the summer.

I have been on a kick making my own popsicles this summer. They are so much healthier and a lot cheaper than buying them from the store. This recipe is definitely going on my must try list! Thanks for sharing :)
