Today is kind of a big deal.
Not only is it my husband’s and my fifth wedding anniversary (INSANE), but it’s also the day I introduce you to these lime creamsicles. Oh, hello frozen creations of glorious deliciousness on a stick. Nice to meet you.
Neither of these things have anything to do with each other — though I guess I could swing it and say I made these pops for my husband in celebration of our love? But really, I made them because of Popsicle Week. Priorities. (Love you, babe!)
I really don’t think you had forgotten about the inaugural Popsicle Week, for which I made these pretty Paloma pops, but in case it somehow tragically slipped your mind, here’s a handy list of 2013’s recipes (scroll to the bottom to see!) as well as a running list of this year’s fantastical frozen foods on a stick. There are 37 of them this year, in case you can’t count. THIRTY-SEVEN. So much goodness for your faceness.
That means you can — and I will — have a new popsicle for basically every day of the summer. OK, OK… like half of the summer. Summertime forever! (Hope you heard me, Minnesota.)
Now about these lime creamsicles. They’re made with three simple things: Lime juice (from a whole lotta limes), milk and sweetened condensed milk, ZOMG. It’s amazing how just a few ingredients, when combined and then frozen, yield such a tasty treat. They’re creamy; they’re sweet; they’re tart; they win hearts and make dreams come true. It’s science.
And because these pops are so magical, they’ll definitely be perfect as our anniversary dinner tonight! (JOKES, you guys. It’ll probably be Chipotle. With these for dessert, natch.)
Thanks so much to Billy of Wit & Vinegar for hosting #PopsicleWeek again this year! And don’t forget to head over right quick to the #PopsicleWeek page to see all the other yums bloggers brought to the pops party. Thirty-seven, you guys. My face is so excited.Print
- Prep Time: 5 mins
- Total Time: 5 mins
- Yield: About 12 (3-ounce) popsicles 1x
- 2 cups milk (I used 2%)
- 1/2 cup fresh lime juice (from about 8 to 10 small limes)
- 1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
- Pour milk, lime juice and sweetened condensed milk into a large bowl; stir until well combined.
- Pour mixture into popsicle molds (I use this mold and love it); place a popsicle stick in the center of each mold.
- Cover and freeze at least 8 hours or overnight. To easily remove popsicles from the mold, dip the mold in a bowl or container of warm water for 10 to 15 seconds.

I just realized — it's the day before our wedding date next year! YAY anniversary buddies!!!!)
I wish I had these waiting for me in the freezer!
Happy anniversary! There is no way I am NOT going to make these popsicles, because as you yourself said, “Science.” I suspect that this is one of those recipes that once you see it, you have to make it, or else the Earth will get sucked into a Black Hole, because dividing by zero.
Nicole — Aww, fun! Happy anniversary! xo
Cynthia — Yay, anniversary buddies 4evr! 😉 Thanks, love!
Robyn Jane — LOL! Pretty much. 😉
YOUR face is excited? My face hasn’t stopped smiling since I read ahead and saw that thuurrrr can of condensed milk. Because how is ANYTHING with condensed milk bad? It is not. Cannot be. Impossible. So many congrats on your anniversary — and thanks for the inspiration! Might just have to make these for the key lime-loving hubs for OUR anniversary next month. 😉
These really do look perfect, love the flavors too!!
These look like creamy limey deliciousness on a stick. Yay! Happy Happy
Anything with sweetened condensed milk is my fave! and these are totally anniversary appropriate.
Happy anniversary, Steph! These creamsicles look phenom!

Happy popsicleversary!! (Just combining all the things into one. It’s how I roll now.)

Happy Anniversary! My husband and I actually celebrated our fifth anniversary yesterday! Yep, also know as the day that Michael Jackson died!
I’ve just finished eating my last batch of popsicles and was wondering what to make next. I think I have my answer.
PS happy belated anniversary!!
Even though we are freezing here in South Africa at the moment, I am totally making these creamsicles this weekend! I’ll be eating them in front of the fireplace. 😉
No better way to celebrate an anniversary than with a popsicle! 😉 Congratulations! Love the flavors in these! Happy Friday 😉
Happy anniversary! These look great but I am really intrigued by the paloma pops too!

Oh jeez, I think you’ve touched on everything I love in life with these pops—making immediately!
Your creamsicles look amazing! Lime would make such a better creamsicle flavor than orange. (I’m a lime lover.) I’d like to your creamsicles in a popsicle roundup I’m preparing for my website, One Creative Mommy. Would that be okay? (It will go live on Monday.)
Heidi — Of course you can add them; thanks for asking! (and I agree, lime > orange ;))

I tried twice to make these popsicles.
How do you keep the condensed milk from curdling the INSTANT you mix in the lime juice?
Nedalin Malle — I’m so sorry to hear that! I never had that problem, so unfortunately, I’m not sure how to help you. Are you using fresh lime juice as opposed to the bottled version? Maybe that’s the difference? I’m sorry, I wish I could help!
No, i used fresh lime juice. So that’s not it.
Maybe i should try finding a more processed condensed milk …
