Key Lime Pie Popsicles

Key Lime Pie Popsicles
Perfect as printed from Fany Gerson’s Paletas

Makes 10 1/3-cup or 3-ounce popsicles

Approximately 4 large regular limes or 6 to 7 key limes
1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1 cup half-and-half (or, 1/2 cup heavy cream + 1/2 cup milk)
Pinch of salt
3 cups coarsely crushed graham crackers or Maria cookies

Zest however many of the limes needed until you have 2 teaspoons total in the bottom of a medium bowl. Juice limes until you have 3/4 cup fresh lime juice. Add juice, condensed milk, half-and-half and salt to zest and whisk together until thoroughly combined. Pour into popsicle molds. Freeze for about 5 hours, or until completely frozen.

Dip in lukewarm water for 10 seconds to unmold each popsicle and press each side into crushed cookie crumbs, coating completely.

My Notes:  I couldn’t find Key Limes the day I made these.  I bought regular limes and added some bottled Key Lime Juice.  I also added a couple of scoops of Protein Powder.  I dipped mine in crushed dark chocolate instead of the graham crackers or cookies.  YUM!!!
