There is no need to go out to the store and buy a ton of ingredients for a popsicle recipe! It’s fun to be creative in the kitchen, so why not improvise with something you already have?
Making your own popsicles will insure that you are using simple ingredients with no hidden sugars or weird add-ins, and they’re quick and easy to make.
*ANOTHER BONUS I haven’t quite timed it out, but I’m guessing, without the freeze time, it will take 10 minutes max to make six popsicles, which is way less time than driving to the store, picking up the ice pops and bringing them home. I’m all about an eco-friendly option that will save you time and money in the long run.
Making a popsicle really only requires two things. Here are the basics…
FRUIT- Any fresh or frozen fruits are a sure way to make a naturally sweet and delicious pop. The possibilities are endless. I like to use mangoes, strawberries, pineapple, kiwi, the list goes on and on. The benefits of using frozen fruit are that they will help your popsicle freeze even faster if you’re in a time crunch.
LIQUID- The possibilities here are incredible! Coconut water, plant-based milks, lemonade, coffee, tea, juice, yogurt, or even plain old tap water will do just fine.
Okay…so now we know the ingredients can be simple, but what about the popsicle molds?
There are so many options out there for popsicle molds made from various materials, but one thing to keep in mind...
