We’ve seen a drop in temperatures this week in Chicago, but temperatures in the low 80’s are no excuse to stop eating popsicles!
I had some strawberries that were on the brink of going bad. I had been wanting to make these popsicles, so it seemed like the perfect opportunity.
- 3/4 cup sliced strawberries
- 1 1/4 tablespoon cornstarch
- 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 3/4 cup water
- 2 cups skim milk
- 1 box sugar-free, fat-free cheesecake flavored pudding
Combine the strawberries, water, cornstarch, lemon juice, and sugar in a bowl. Mix to combine.
Transfer to a saucepan. Cook over low heat for five minutes with near constant stirring.
Remove from the heat and let thicken.
Set aside and let cool.
Stir 2 cups cold skim milk with pudding mix until smooth, about 2 minutes.
Spoon cheesecake pudding and strawberry mixture into molds, alternating flavors to your liking.
Freeze 6-8 hours. Enjoy.
It’s very easy to substitute other fruits for the strawberries to make fruit flavoring of choice.
