Winter Citrus

I know, I know. I said I would continue to post. I would post even as popsicle weather evolved into hot chocolate weather (hmm, hot chocolate popsicles?) I really have no excuse given the mild state of our winter. How do these Climategate 2.0 jokers continue to deny climate change?

Moving on. Yesterday I was lucky enough to spend the afternoon and evening with Dr. Cohen. A devoted fan of us here at mmmPOP, he was disappointed to find my freezer completely devoid of popsicles. So, he pulled me out of my popsicle hiatus to make some mango inspired pops.

We decided on MANGO ORANGE GINGER. We blended:

1/2 orange
1 cup frozen mango
2 tbs crystalized ginger
3 oz nonfat greek yogurt

I left the first batch in a little too long and struggled to remove them. Miss McNitt, usually very handy in these situations, was nowhere to be found. Luckily Dr. Cohen used his BigStrongManMuscles (is that the proper medical term, Zak?) to successfuly remove the pops!

I haven't tried one yet but they smell delightfully citrusy. And I do feel better knowing my freezer is no longer a pop-free zone. Phew.
