Foodie Friday: Frozen Mint Hot Chocolate Pops

Hello and happy Friday!  For those who were asking, we DID survive tropical storm Bill!  We got a bit of rain, but it did not seem as bad as it was predicted.  I am thankful for that!  🙂

      
     

I’m linking up again with my favorite Foodie Friday ladies to share some amazing recipes with y’all!  Farrah from Fairyburger, Annmarie from the Fit Foodie Mama, Cassandra from Powered by BLING, and Emily from Whatever Floats Your Oats!

As the weather has gotten warmer, frozen treats have been on the brain (and the tummy).  I was reminded of a funny story from a few years ago.  One of my sweet friends had a layover here and it was long enough for us to hang out a little!  Pretty much the only place to hang out in the airport without going though security is Starbucks!  Ha  So we met there!  It was winter and we both ordered hot drinks!  For some reason the barista made my friend a FROZEN hot chocolate!  We were both so confused!  Neither of us had heard of that before, and she had clearly ordered a HOT chocolate!
Well, that funny story inspired me this week to make a frozen hot chocolate popsicle!  So thank you Katie and random barista!!

Ingredients
2 1/2 cups plain yogurt
2 packets of hot chocolate mix
1 tsp vanilla extract
2-3 drops peppermint essential oil or 1/4 tsp peppermint extract

      It is a great combo! The twins even wanted some for breakfast! Haha!
      I am glad we survived too! It was a tough week being stuck inside for a few days in a row!
      Thanks girl, happy weekend to you 🙂

        My region apparently wants to join in on the “fun” (hah) and decided to roll out with a bunch of flash flood warnings over the weekend. So very fun! ._.
