It’s hot out there. How do I know this? Because I’ve been getting an unprecedented number of requests for popsicle recipes.
It started when I posted this super simple recipe for strawberry lemonade popsicles that uses only four ingredients and no refined sugar. These pops are so refreshing on a summer afternoon. It seems that popsicles have taken over as the new popular summer treat. I’ve seen so many cute and interesting combinations of flavors over on Pinterest that I’ve even started a board devoted to them.
Popsicles are the ultimate hot weather treat. They’re instantly refreshing, and have the potential for an infinte combination of healthy ingredients. Plus, let’s not forget, popsicles are served on a stick. And everything is better on a stick. Just ask my kids if you don’t believe me.
Popsicles have quickly become my favorite way to get a little more fruits and veggies into our day. My children may decide to turn down a smoothie or a muffin, but they have never, ever turned down a popsicle.
That article was exactly what I was looking for, with great tips on using fresh fruit purees, which is a step that was giving me trouble. It even gives instructions for getting those perfect layers I see in all those beautiful Pinterest photos.
If you’re looking for something creative to do with the kids this summer, making ice pops is definitely something you need to try. Check out the article on CookingLight.com, then get the kids involved with coming up with the flavors. You never know what irresistible combinations they will dream up.
But remember this, popsicles aren’t only for the kids. I think I’ll be keeping a batch of these Limoncello pops on the top shelf of the freezer for when Mommy needs a little refreshment too. Who’s with me?
