Summer is winding down and I can feel it in my metal frame. And by “I can feel it” I mean “I am aware that classes begin next week and suddenly I won’t be able to stay up until 3 am marathoning TV shows on Netflix.”
Which is what all robots do in the summer months.
So! In my effort to prolong the feeling of summer and laziness and no responsibilities (a perk of being a robot student) I’ve made a classic summer treat even more summer-y by transforming it into popsicles!
And popsicles are my most favorite summer treat, so there was no way this recipe wouldn’t be awesome.
The shells of the M&Ms melt into the milk and create this super cool rainbow effect, but you can switch out the cashews or raisins for any of your favorite trail mix ingredients (though the raisins are plump and chewy and the cashews provide a nice little kick of salt).
Whip these up in five minutes (preferably in your pajamas) and use your remaining time to sleep in until noon. Like me!
Rainbow Trail Mix Popsicles
makes 10 popsicles
inspired by Jackie’s Happy Plate
3/4 cup raisins
3/4 cup M&Ms
3/4 cup cashews
2 cups vanilla almond milk
1. In a medium-sized bowl, combine raisins, M&Ms, and cashews. Place 1/4 cup of trail mix into each popsicle cavity. Insert a popsicle stick into the center of the molds, then pour in enough milk to cover the trail mix. Freeze until completely solid (I freeze mine overnight). Run popsicle molds under hot water for 20-30 seconds and the popsicle should slide right out of the mold.
