You want to say no, but you can’t.
“Salted Caramel Ice Pop Recipe…” it just kind of resounds with ‘fat’ and ‘unhealthy’ connotations, doesn’t it? Well, not the way we’re making ‘em! This is a summer treat that everyone can enjoy. We’re not going to go so far as to say it’s good for you (just eat the banana instead of the whole recipe found below), but it’s not going to cost you an extra half hour on the treadmill.
If you’ve never tried the amazing combination of salt and caramel before, then you’re in for a real treat. Earlier this week, we featured an iced coffee recipe that brings out the best in both flavors thanks to Amoretti Premium Crema di Salted Caramel Syrup. Today, it’s dessert’s turn for the spotlight, made possible by one of our favorite flavoring extracts, Salted Caramel Artisan Flavor. Live a little…
Salted Caramel Ice Pop Recipe
- 3 bananas
- 1.5 oz Salted Caramel Artisan Flavor
- 1 cup whole milk
- ¼ cup sugar
Blend all ingredients on high in a blender or food processor. Get rid of any froth by scraping it from the top with a wooden spoon. Pour the mixture into ice pop trays or freezer-friendly cups. Allow the ice pops about 30 minutes to become partly frozen. Remove the tray and add wooden sticks. Return to freezer for 3-5 hours or until fully frozen. Remove and enjoy!
Make it Decadent! Ice Pop Recipe Addendums
At this point, you have a fairly healthy (or at least not-bad-for-you snack). But, if you want a decadent snack, we’ve got some suggestions:
- Drizzle a little Amoretti Premium Crema di Caramel Syrup onto the finished product. Or apply a gentle coat of our creamy caramel syrup to the ice pop, press it into crushed nuts of your choice (we recommend pistachios), and then return the ice pop to the freezer for another half hour.
- Follow the same suggestion as above, but instead of pressing crushed pistachios, press coarse sea salt into the ice pop instead. Or do both if you want to!
- To make this ice pop recipe sweeter and lighter (body – not calories), use less milk and add whipped cream in. One word of advice: start by blending without the whipped cream and then spoon it in and stir.
