POP! FIZZ! FREEZE!
I love this playful dessert to end the year and your holiday parties with a smile. Fruity and sweet with just enough fizz to be the perfect dessert to have before or after a ball dropping fireworks kind of kiss.

Dessert from me!!! See Below!
1 cup champagne (don’t use the good stuff here…save that for a midnight kiss)
1 cup mango puree (about 2 mangoes)
2 ripe bananas
1 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
1 cup sugar
1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup water
12 popsicle molds (the bomb pop kind)
Add all the ingredients into a blender and puree until smooth. Pour into popsicle molds and freeze overnight. Can be made a week in advance.
Happy New Year!! I can’t wait to see what 2016 has in store.
