Ice Pop Failure

Today I planned on telling you all about the really cool festive fourth of July dessert I made the other night. The only problem it was a total flop.

I followed this recipe exactly for raspberry lemonade ice pops. Originally I thought I would use raspberries and blueberries to make them red, white, and blue. They're cute right?!
The recipe sounded easy enough. Except they came out nothing like the picture haha. The colored layers didn't stay put and all mashed into one. And for the record, it is really hard to get the ice pops out of those plastic cups. The popsicle stick just pulled right out of alot of them. I don't know where I went wrong, but it was not quite the festive holiday treat I was going for haha.

Even though this was a total flop, I did eat one and it was pretty tasty!

Yesterday morning I woke up too late for spin. I have to have enough time to eat breakfast and digest it for a good hour before I workout. So sine that didn't happen I decided to hit up the treadmill. I did Julie's  55 minute treadmill incline walk/run workout.

The only parts I changed were instead of running in the middle (I was in one of those I hate running moods) I did speed walking. And I did 45 minutes instead of 55. Just because it is a walking workout, don't let that fool you. Incline walking is no joke! My arms were covered in sweat by the time I was done.

Today is leg day, wish me luck haha!

**What is a recent recipe flop of yours?

  1. I have had a few recent recipe flops, myself. There have been a couple of soups that have sounded SO delicious but ended up really lacking in flavor. They were super disappointing :(.


Thanks for leaving a comment! I love hearing from you!
