While you may not be quite so carefree these days, enjoying ice pops in the summer heat is still a must. Ice pops don't have to be the sugary, artificial fruit kind either. Why not whip up some frozen treats of a slightly more sophisticated variety?
Back in the day, I used to love the Tiramisu Gelato from Trader Joe's. I don't think they carry it anymore, but with all that sugar it would no longer fit in with my healthy, low-sugar lifestyle. So I decided to take all the great flavors of mascarpone, coffee and chocolate, and turn it into a creamy, low-carb treat. The great thing about ice pops is that they offer automatic portion control. And ice pop molds are a wonderful and inexpensive alternative to ice cream makers. You can pour just about any concoction into them, and a few hours later you can enjoy frozen goodness on a stick. Just like a being a kid again.
