Make Your Own Chelada Pops Video
Posted by Bob Skilnik on June 28, 2007
You might recall an earlier post about the Rustico Restaurant in Alexandria, VA and its problems selling beer popsicles. The Virginia Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control says the “beersicles” run afoul of rules governing the serving and pouring of beer.
I’ve also noticed an unusual amount of hits on this blog for anything pertaining to Miller’s Chelada-styled Chill beer…and that got me thinking.
So what I’ve down is taken the idea and the interest in Miller Chill and put them together for my version of a Chelada Pop.
Chelada Pops ala Bob
1 12-ounce bottle of Miller Chill
1/4 teaspoon of finely grated lime zest
Juice from one small lime
3 packets of Splenda (or 3 teaspoons of sugar) or more to taste
2-3 drops of green food coloring
Pour Miller Chill into container, add the remaining ingredients and stir. Using frozen treat containers (I found mine at the local Jewel Store in the “Seasonal” section), pour the liquid into the containers. Don’t fill to the top since the liquid will expand as it freezes. Don’t worry if you find the liquid a bit too sweet. It should be. As the Chelada Pop freezes, the sweetness will become muted and will balance out.
Put the Chelada Pops into the freezer overnight and enjoy.
Since I’m cutting back on the carbs and calories, my 4-pack of Chelada Pops comes out to 2.38 carbs and 26.5 calories each. Of course, this depends on the size of the containers you use, but hey…how can you go wrong?
