vanilla ice pops

Yesterday was H-O-T, as it has been for a while now so we decided to make popsicles. Ok, spell check isn't liking "popsicle" so I just looked it up and did you know that popsicle is a brand?! Like "Kleenex," or "Levi's" (as my grandma says), or "McNuggets" (as we said as children)? <--not sure where to put the punctuation there, as we have quotes and parenthesis-- How did I not know this treat should really be called an ice pop until age 25?! Does anyone call them that?!

I digress.

Anyway, I give you Vanilla Ice Pops (apparently I was kidding with that last post about not needing any more recipes, although this really hardly counts as a recipe).
Simple, simple, lightly sweet, and very refreshing. Our new fav.

Vanilla Ice Pops

2 cups milk (we used whole but do whatever you want)
2 Tbs sugar
2 tsp vanilla

Mix all together until sugar dissolves. Pour into molds and freeze. Mangez. Fin.

yum, really? that's it? they sound awesome. it's not that hot here, but i still love me some popsicles! and what's strange is that i can picture the popsicle brand logo, but i never realized it was a brand of its own. i just figured they were too lazy to come up with a different name. it would be like opening up a clothing store called "shirts" or some such.

I was just contemplating, yesterday, how I would make a vanilla "ice pop"! Thanks for the recipe! Can't wait to try.

I never knew that about Popsicles! I knew that about Kleenex and the others. Too funny.

Love the pictures!!

I think I knew that was a brand, but still... who says ice pop? It's like Band-aid or Kleenex. "Please pass a facial tissue?" I don't think so.

And thanks for sharing what I think is the very first of your recipes that I can actually make! :) Yaaaay! Totally doing this.
