Orange Sherbet Bars / Creamy Orange popsicles

When I see people in the grocery store with the list of ingredients used for a recipe, I get surprised. At the same time, I envy them since they are so organized and buy exactly whatever is needed. I not only buy things that I need, but also things I 'might need' and then end up using it because it is going bad. Same happened the other day. I had few condensed milk cans that I had bought thinking I would need them for something. They will be expiring in a month or so and the result of that is this popsicle. I prefer this over ice cream since it is quick and easy to make and serving is a breeze. This one is not too sweet and not very strong in flavor. It was liked by all at home.
One Year Back - Vegan Mango Coconut Cake
Two Years Back - Chocolate Strawberry Muffins
Three Years Back - Zucchini Kootu

Ingredients: (Makes about 15 - 16 popsicles if filled in 3 Oz cups little more than 3/4th full)
Condensed milk - 1 can (fat free would do)
Orange Juice - 1 1/2 cups (I used juice from the carton, but freshly squeezed would be better)
Half and Half - 1 1/2 cups (Whole milk or heavy cream would work too)

Combine all the ingredients in a bowl. Whisk well until the condensed milk blends in with the rest of the liquid. To make it easy, you could use a blender and mix. Pour into popsicle molds or in my case, 3 Oz dixie cups. Freeze until solid and serve.
This post is written for weekend cooking post that I write with Srivalli  and  Vaishali, 

I used orange juice from the carton since my kids would refuse it if they found pulp in the fresh juice. If you love orange flavor, you could add about 2 TBSP of orange zest to it. Or use some orange extract to intensify the flavor. I was kind of trying to hide the strong flavor so didn't add any.
