AArti's Pistachio Pops Revised

I found these pistachio pops on the foodnetwork site last year and found them to be too rich and calorie laden. I replaced some of the sweetened condensed milk and heavy cream with non fat sweetened condensed milk and skim milk. I used a smidgen of heavy cream. The Earl Grey tea makes this adult popsicle very refreshing. My kids even like it!  These are a nice snack for those hot summer days to come.

Pistachio Pops

1 12oz. can fat free sweetened condensed milk
4 oz heavy cream
12 oz. fat free skim milk
4 Earl Grey tea bags snipped
1/2 tsp. ground cardamom
1/4 cup crushed pistachios
2 plastic ice popsicle containers

In a sauce pan add the condensed milk and skim milk. Bring to a simmer. Snip the ends off of four Earl Grey tea bags and pour into the milk. Turn off the heat and let steep for 30 minutes.

Next place a siv over a bowl and pour the tea infused milk over the siv. Use a spoon to push the milk through the tea grounds. Next add the heavy cream and half of the chopped pistachios. Stir and pour into the molds. Garnish with the remaining pistachios and put the sticks in.

Stick in the freezer for 12 hours. Run under cold water to release from the molds. You may also need to run a sharp knife inside the container. Enjoy!
