Sound complicated and expensive? Fear not! These luscious Creamsicles are inexpensive and super EASY to make. No ice cream machine is needed.
lol... feel free to "love/thank" me later... ;-D In the meantime, let's get started.
Step 1: Tools and Ingredients:
- Popsicle Molds
- Craft Sticks
- Double-Boiler (optional)
- 1 packet Instant Oatmeal- any flavor
- 1 ripe Banana
- 1/4 cup Milk
- 1 Tablespoon Brown Sugar
- Mini Chocolate Chips
- Chocolate for melting
- Coconut Oil
- Sliced Almonds
Feel free to use your favorite homemade Oatmeal, but it will require sweetening. With different add-ins (like chopped raisins), you could easily convert this creamsicle (sans chocolate coating) into a healthy breakfast. Your kids will love you for it... but they might think you've gone a little cRaZy. ;-D
Step 2: Easy Preparation:
Put the oatmeal in a blender. Add 1/4 cup milk, blend until smooth. Add 1 Tablespoon brown sugar and the banana. Blend until smooth.
Taste the mixture. Add more brown sugar if needed.
Pour the mixture into a mixing bowl. Fold in 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips. Pour/spoon the mixture into the popsicle molds, leaving 1/2" at the top for expansion.
The banana-oatmeal filling will be thick enough to hold the craft sticks upright. Insert them about 2/3 of the way down into the popsicle and freeze for at least 6 hours.
