Eat on the Cheap Recipe: Strawberry-Blood Orange Creamsicles


Makes 8-10 servings; total cost per serving 75 cents

1 cup chopped strawberries
3/4 cup blood orange juice
1/2 teaspoon lemon or lime juice
1/2 cup milk
1 can sweetened condensed milk

Popsicle molds, ice cube trays, small paper cups
Popsicle sticks

1. Using a hand blender or regular blender, puree the strawberries, blood orange juice and lemon juice until smooth. Add the milk and sweetened condensed milk, and puree again until smooth and creamy.

2. Pour the creamsicle mix into molds or prepared ice cube trays or paper cups. Add the sticks and freeze for about 2-3 hours, until firm. Remove from molds (you may need to run cool water over the molds to help loosen each one), and enjoy!
