Ice Cream with Quark and Mint (Glass med kvarg och mint)

delliedelicious popsicles kvarg quark glass ice cream

This is such a simple and easy way of making a healthy and refreshing option to regular ice cream. I love ice cream, and could live on it. But sometimes you really need to think about a healthier option. And since I just moved back to Sweden from Norway I wanted to buy this popular quark. In Norway we have a very small selection of different quarks. But here in Sweden, oh my! The options are endless! It’s great! 
I decided to go for a simple vanilla flavor for this ice cream though. I added some milk to loosen it up a bit and a few drops of peppermint extract to give it some extra oumph. 
You will be needing some sort of popsicle mold for this recipe and ice cream sticks.

( makes 4 popsicles)
350 ml quark
50 ml milk
Peppermint extract
White chocolate
Toasted coconut
Gel food coloring

In a bowl, with a spoon, whisk together quark ( I used Lindahls Kvarg with vanilla flavour) and milk. Add a few drops of peppermint extract (to taste). If you want to color your ice cream divided the batter into different bowls. Use gel food coloring and use whatever colors your prefer. I went for blue, pink and orange. The 4th color is the quark all natural. Divide your batter between your molds and freeze until set, 6-12 hours depending on size and freezer.
For serving, remove popsicles from their molds. Melt white chocolate and drizzle over your popsicles. Quickly sprinkle some toasted coconut on top and voilá! Ready to serve! Delicious!
