Milk mango popsicles. This recipe is basically three of my favourite things put together; no bake desserts + frozen milk + nostalgia. When I was a kid, my grandmother used to make us “dhood-soda” (which is basically cream soda + milk), and then we’d pour it in a stainless steel bowl and freeze it. The […]
