Or smoothies. I'm not quite sure what these qualify as.
We made smoothies this morning with some fresh strawberries from a U-pick place nearby.
But the kiddo's idea for smoothie ingredients was a definite fail. She just wanted to have strawberries, but no yogurt. I knew it wouldn't work, but I let her make them anyway. We added ice (of course - a must!) and I tossed in some milk. When she didn't finish hers and I tasted the extra and noticed it was quite, uh, meh - shall we say? - I tossed them together, gave them a mix, popped them into a muffin tin and put them in the freezer.
I showed them to her earlier and she was all too eager to test them out.
She's happy, as apparently frozen slushie-drops are delicious.
They seem kind of like an Italian ice (the ones in the yellow cups that we used to buy and scrape the sugary bottom off with a little wooden stick/spoon - do you remember those, too?), but less sweet. I may have to try one myself.
She suggested I "should have put pop sticks in them," which is true, and would have been smart, had I HAD any in the house.
So for now we'll pop 'em out of here like so ...
And eat them in a cup with a spoon!
Enjoy, and Happy Muffin Tin Monday.
