Lime Icy Poles

Lime Icy Poles

Recently, I was obsessed with Chin Chin’s cookbook!  If you can see, I have attempted a few impressive recipes from Chef Benjamin Cooper himself.  So proud of myself 🙂  In the original recipe, Benjamin served the pops dipped in toasted rice flakes and sugar mixture but I find that too sweet for my liking, so I omitted it.

These popsicles are the perfect zesty way to end a nice meal with friends and family, especially on a super hot day.  So, next time, when the temperature rises, think of Lime Icy Poles, the fourth recipe in Pop Series.

Lime Icy Poles (adapted from Benjamin Cooper’s Chin Chin the Book)

Makes 12 popsicles 

Ingredients:
1/2 cup condensed milk
2 cups milk
3/4 cup lime juice
zest of 2 limes
pinch of salt

Method:
1. Mix the milks, juice and zest in a bowl.  Ensure it’s evenly mixed.  Then add a pinch of salt.

2. Slowly pour the mixture into the popsicle molds – dividing them equally.  Cover the molds and place the sticks into the mold.  Freeze.

Enjoy!

    These look good…is it correct that there is no sugar in the recipe?

    • Hi Carol,

      It’s correct that there’s no sugar in this recipe.

      The sweetness actually comes from the condensed milk which balances off the sour lime flavour. But start by adding in little by little and taste as it can be very sweet if there’s too much condensed milk 😉
