You may have received the 2016 Milk Calendar in your mailbox last month. Did you know the first Dairy Farmers of Canada Calendar was released in 1974? That’s when I was released too – no wonder I enjoy milk so much.
When this years calendar came out, I was asked by Dairy Farmers if I would like to recreate my birthday month’s recipe. Without even knowing what it is, I said yes. Besides its legacy of recipes that have stood the test of time, the Milk Calendar provides quick, easy, nutritious and delicious recipes. Also, every Milk Calendar recipe can be ready in 45 minutes or less, include at least 1 cup of milk, and meet the recommendations of Canada’s Food Guide to Healthy Eating.
So, what is the July recipe? It’s Tasty Fruit Ice Pops… and I agree, they are super tasty. The recipe is so simple, I’m not even going to write it down… just watch!
How simple is that? While mine weren’t quite as pretty as theirs, they were just as delicious… even in December! I couldn’t help but think of how delicious these will be once the impending doom of my first winter cold sets in. Big thanks to my neighbourhood Mom’s Group on Facebook for coming to the rescue when I couldn’t find frozen pop molds in Canada in late fall… you rock!
