Lime and pomegranate ice pops are an easy summer treat that the whole family will love. These pops take about 2 minutes to assemble but then you have to be patient while they freeze. To get the striped effect, it is important to let each layer to completely freeze before adding another one. If you are feeling particularly impatient, you can swirl the two flavors together and enjoy a marble ice pop instead.
Lime and Pomegranate Pops
4 medium sized limes, juiced (approximately 1/2 cup) and zested
1 14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup milk
pinch of salt
3/4 cup pomegranate juice
1/4 cup water
1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
2 tbsp sugar
1/4 cup pomegranate arils (seeds)
Step 1: Place ice pop molds in the freezer until chilled.
Step 2: In a medium bowl, combine the lime juice and zest, sweetened condensed milk, heavy cream, milk, and salt. Whisk until all ingredients are well incorporated. Let the mixture chill the fridge while you prepare the other one.
Step 3: In a separate bowl, combine pomegranate juice, water, lemon juice, and sugar. Let mixture chill in the fridge.
Step 4: Remove mold from fridge and fill halfway with lime mixture. Place the mold back in the freezer until set. Once the lime mixture is frozen, pour the pomegranate mixture a 1/4 of the way up the mold. Drop in a few arils into the mixture as well. Allow mixture to set before following with another lime layer. Continue this process until the molds are filled.
Step 5: To remove pops from mold, briefly run them under warm water. This helps to loosen the pops from the mold.
