Do you remember the Real Seal?
I remember seeing it all over the place on dairy products growing up, but until I was asked to create a recipe using a Real Seal product, I didn’t realize that it’s not quite as common before. They actually have a Facebook page with meal ideas and healthy tips for incorporating dairy into your everyday life (Like, did you know that milk is best stored on the bottom shelf in the very back of your fridge, because it’s coldest there?).
Maybe fewer products are meeting their high standards. Who knows. Well, the Real Seal people probably do, but I sure don’t.
I chose to use heavy cream bearing the Real Seal. While I was making these, I was drinking the strawberry milk pictured. That stuff is so good.
Oh, did I mention this is part of their “Beat the Heat, End of Summer Treat” campaign?
That is something I can definitely get on board with. We’re still in the 100’s here in Tucson. I’m all about beating the heat. And beating the end of summer. The beginning of summer rocks, but the end of summer can take a popsicle-bop to its head.
Beat the cream, milk (I used skim), vanilla, brown sugar, and Cookie Butter together. I used an immersion blender, because I can.
And because the end pops off at the touch of a button. Such a cool kitchen appliance.
Then fill your popsicle molds. I bought these adorable little guys on Amazon. They’re really small at about 2oz each, but they’re perfect portion control!
Sprinkle in your mini chocolate chips, stick in the tops, and pop them in the freezer for at least 4 hours.
And then you have a cool, creamy, Cookie Butter-y end of summer treat.
I brought one of these to school for a coworker last week and she ate it at 7am.
The freedom of being an adult and being able to eat a popsicle for breakfast pretty much rocks.
If you don’t have access to Cookie Butter (you poor people!) from Trader Joe’s, then I think these would still be delicious and creamy with peanut butter.
But…try to get your hands on Cookie Butter. It’s one of the best “butters” out there.
Oh, and the mini chocolate chips sink to the bottom, but that was actually one of my favorite parts. It’s kind of like the Drumsticks that have the chocolate chunk in the bottom of the waffle cone.
Totally the best part.
