Paletas de Pay de Limón – Lime Pie Ice Pops

I’m attempting to squeeze every last bit of summer out of this last week before school starts. (Honestly, it’s conflicting with my desperate need to organize the basement and office – the one thing I was ABSOLUTELYPOSITIVELY going to get done in August. Of which there are only 8 days left of.)

And I hadn’t even managed to make popsicles! Which are of course all the rage this year. Forget all those years of buying ice pop molds at the dollar store, then cursing the dozen multicoloured plastic handles scattered all over the basement floor for me to a) pick up, and/or 2) step on. I’d throw them out, then get tempted by another set. Did I ever make popsicles? Not really.

But then Avery emailed me a link to the Kitchn, and these creamy lime pie pops, and it was like the mother ship calling me home. I’m a sucker for that lime juice-sweetened condensed milk combo; I love the science of it, the way the mixture thickens as you whisk acid into dairy. I love folding whipped cream into it, then intercepting most of it myself before it makes it into its pie shell.

But frozen into popsicles! Brilliant. And a perfect mixture for freezing in shot glasses – those tall ones, if you can find them. I procured mine for 69 cents at Value Village.

The best part? You douse them in graham crumbs to complete the pie effect. Genius, I know.

AuthorJulie

1 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
1 cup half & half
zest and juice of 2 large limes
Pinch salt
coarsely crushed graham crackers or Digestive cookies (or graham crumbs)

1

Whisk together the sweetened condensed milk, half & half, lime juice, lime zest, and salt in a bowl and whisk until thoroughly combined. It will thicken slightly - a reaction between the lime juice and milk - I love that.

2

If using ice pop molds, fill them almost to the top and pop in their sticks. If using shot glasses, fill them almost full, then cover with plastic wrap and stick popsicle sticks through the wrap (which will hold them in place) - the mixture is likely thick enough to hold a stick upright without the wrap, though. Freeze until solid.

3

Spread the crumbs on a large plate.

4

Unmold the pops and dip into the graham crackers, coating as much as you like.

    You’ll want to try this too, and keep one in the freezer.

    SLY LIME PIE – from Bon Appetit about 30 years ago.

    One graham crumb crust
    2 litres of vanilla ice cream
    6 oz limeade frozen concentrate

    Let the limeade and ice cream soften a bit. Spoon both into the Cuisinart, blend, turn into the crust, freeze. Yummm. Just like you squeezed those little limes all day but you’re already on the deck with the margueritas you made with the remaining 6 oz of limeade.

    When you go back to NYC again, take a trip to Red Hook in Brooklyn. There you will find the most amazing key lime pie (just follow the hand painted signs) and key limeade. And the “swingle” which is a key lime pie frozen on a stick and dipped in belgium dark chocolate. Oh yes. I’m kicking myself for not getting one, but the regular tart & limeade were amazing.

    I think I’ll take a cue from you and from the key lime pie guy!

    So on this version of key lime pie!!!! Used to keep a similar version in multiples in the freezer when the kids were young. Make a crumb crust of gingersnaps instead of graham cracker, scoop vanilla ice cream (orange would be good too)into the crust, drizzle thawed orange juice concentrate between/over the scoops, wrap and freeze. Always a hit.

    Too bad the kids grew up and now don’t eat desserts!!!!!!!!! How did that happen????????

    My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know

    of course like your web site but you have to check the spelling on several of your posts.
    Several of them are rife with spelling problems and I find it very troublesome to tell the reality on the other hand I’ll certainly come

    Hi there just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a few of the images aren’t loading correctly.
    I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different web browsers and both show the same outcome.

    Before purchasing any of the mobile phones, it is very important to buy them
    from a reliable mobile phone store. For older people who like to travel, having constant cell phone service means
    that help is ALWAYS just a phone call away if they need it.
    Typing for me has long been a part of my life and I have seen this skill
    move from completely inaccurate and slow to speedy and accurate using a computer’s keyboard.

    It is easy to install yourself or if you rather want an expert hand then you can call the manufacturing company to provide you with
    the necessary help.

    Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this site.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very hard to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and visual appearance.

    I must say you’ve done a very good job with this.
    In addition, the blog loads extremely quick for me on Chrome.
    Exceptional Blog!
