Indian Popsicles

I remember my childhood days indulging in ice pops (Popsicle) every summer vacation. Nowadays those ice pops are replaced by ice cream and we all really miss them so much. So here are the recipes for those forgotten ice pops that are truly Indian!

I have prepared my favorite kulfi ice, thenga (coconut) ice, semiya (vermecilli) ice & rose ice. These home-made ice pops are so flavorful and do not contain any other additives. Most importantly they are easy to prepare at home.

First I have prepared condensed milk (by boiling milk until it was reduced to half and added sugar into it) and kept aside; instead you can use store-bought condensed milk.
