Servings: 4-6Prep Time: 5-10 min
3 cups orange juice
1 can (5 ounces) evaporated milk
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
5 drops red food color (optional)
Place all the ingredients in a blender and blend well or place in a large bowl and beat well with an electric beater, until the sugar has completely dissolved. Pour into popsicle molds and freeze until solid.
NOTE: Don’t lose your cool if you don’t have popsicle molds: it’s the stick part that the kids love, anyway. You can use just about any freezer-safe container to make homemade frozen treats. Try using small plastic cups and non-toxic wooden craft sticks or even plastic spoons for your handles. The cups are perfect for catching drips or for “keeping the rest for later” when their sweet tooth is larger than their appetite.
