This 3-ingredients Dulce De Leche Lemon Popsicles recipe is delicious and so refreshing! They're so easy to make and everyone will love them!
Why I called these "Dulce De Leche"
I feel like I have to justify the name of these popsicles recipe since I have received a lot of comments as of why I called them Dulce De Leche when in fact they're made with condensed milk. The brand of Mexican condensed milk has Dulce De Leche on the label so I went with that plus this description is more fun right?
Now that I got that out of the way let's continue with the fun part shall we?
I used to make them in Mexico as a child but instead of popsicle molds, I used small sandwich bags. Once they were frozen I cut a small hole in the bottom corner to eat them from there.
We call them "helados". Now I cringe with the thought of eating out of a bag like that since I probably ended up eating some of the plastic too lol!
Why are my homemade popsicles icy?
Using low fat milk products cause the icy effect (freezer burn) on creamy popsicles. To prevent this, just use a higher fat milk product. If you decide to use the condensed milk fat-free version, just know that they will be more "icy."
