Frozen Lemon-Mint Ricotta Pops

Frozen Lemon-Mint Ricotta Pops

Hi, I’m back! Well, I’ve actually been home though the blog has been quiet. I was just having a little break and chilled out catching up with reading, studying, cleaning, did a cleanse and met with friends. Those kind of breaks do wonders, don’t they? I got lots of new ideas and I’m getting inspired from Summer vibes that are very much getting here as the days are just getting hotter.

Is it Summer where you are? If not yet, save this recipe for later as these frozen pops are so delicious and refreshing! They are milky from the ricotta, minty from the fresh mint leaves and a bit tangy from the lemon. I used some brown sugar to sweeten them a bit and the flavour resembles Mochito just sans the alcohol. 😉

Ricotta I used in this recipe was 5% fat, though you can make them with any ricotta you got. In the heat the pops are melting quick so you can’t do long photo shoots without melting bits (check my Instagram) – just grab the stick and enjoy!Frozen Lemon-Mint Ricotta Pops
