Combine the flavors of a strawberry margarita in creamy dreamy popsicle is sure to be a hit at your summer gatherings.
Years ago one of my neighbors brought the most amazing creamy margarita pops to a pool party. They were so refreshing on the 100+ degree day. It has been on my list to make them since that day.
Well this year's margarita round up was finally the impetus for me to make them. And why go with plain old margaritas when you can add some beautifully ripe fresh strawberries to them?
Ingredients for Creamy Strawberry Margarita Popsicles
The secret ingredient in these popsicles is the sweetened condensed milk. Instead of being a solid block of ice like most ice pops, the milk gives it a soft creamy texture. Not quite ice cream, but definitely a wonderful blend of the two.
Instead of strawberries you could use water instead, or mix in other fruit juice such as watermelon, mango, other berries, etc. Make a few of each and have a margarita pop taste off.
