That’s right chia seeds aren’t just for your favorite “chia pet” anymore 😉 This is a cleaver way to sneak some amazing chia seeds into their diets. You can read about the benefits of chia seeds here.
1/2 Gallon Fresh Apple Cider
1 Cup Apple Sauce (I prefer the chunky kind)
1 12oz Jar of Hot Caramel Sauce
1 Cup Cream
1 Teaspoon Cinnamon
2 Tablespoons Chia Seeds (optional)
In a medium pan heat the apple cider and reduce until there is only about 1 cup remaining. Remove from the heat; add the apple sauce and cinnamon allow the mixture to cool. If you are adding the chia seeds do now’s the time. Make sure you stir the mixture every few minuets (the chia seeds will cause the mixture to thicken).
Now you have two options. If you are a busy mom who is going for flavor, and not looks just combine all the ingredients together; pour them into the popsicle molds. If you want to dress things up a bit you can take a few extra minuets, and layer each flavor in the molds. For this recipe we are going to do the layering method.
Once the mixture has cooled you can pour it into the popsicle tray filling about half to three-quarters of the way up. Place the sticks into the popsicle molds then pop them into the freezer for about 30 min just until set.
Next heat the caramel in the microwave just for a few seconds, so that it’s a thick liquid consistency. Pour 1 Tablespoon of the caramel into each of the popsicle trays. To finish the popsicles pour the cream over the caramel, and then place back into the freezer for about 3 hours or until completely frozen.
Before serving the creamy caramel apple cider popsicles place the under hot running water to help release them from the molds. This is the perfect sweet and sour treat for your little ghouls and goblins.
