I found this great recipe on Woman's Health magazine yesterday. I tried it out yesterday, I love it as a great cold treat on a hot day. I thought I would share it so all you chicks could try it out. I am a huge fan of smoothies, and homemade ice treats, and this one has some great health benefits. Who doesn't love having a treat that's actually good for you, it's a win win.I am an addict when it comes to trying anything to cool down on a hot day. Here is the recipe, hope you enjoy !!

These gourmet ice pops aren't just delish treats for hot summer days—they're also health food on a stick.



Thai Iced Coffee

Antioxidant-packed java may help ward off diabetes and some forms of
cancer--and keep your mind sharp. Adding cardamom to the grinds while
brewing gives this cool dessert a spicy kick.



1/4 cup sugar

1/4 cup water

1/4 tsp almond extract



1 cup strongly brewed coffee, cooled (prepared with 1/2 tsp ground cardamom added to coffee grinds)


2 Tbsp half-and-half



Boil sugar and water in saucepan, stirring until sugar is dissolved.
Remove from heat and add almond extract. Combine syrup with remaining
ingredients. Distribute into ice-pop molds, add sticks, and freeze for 8
hours.
