If you live in Southern California, you know that summer days can sometimes be unbearably hot. When I say sometimes, I mean always. The fruit popsicles will definitely help you out.
What is better than munching on a freezing popsicle to cool you off while you lounge by the pool? I’ll answer that- not much. These fruit and juice combos will have you skipping the unhealthy, store-bought popsicles and reaching into your freezer for your homemade summer treats instead.
There are literally endless combinations and so many ways to be creative while making your homemade popsicles. I did not even leave the house for any of these ingredients, I found them all in my fridge/freezer. So grab your popsicle mold, favorite fruit, and let’s go!
Choose your fruit and put it straight into the popsicle mold. I used a mixture of frozen and fresh fruit, because it was what I had on hand.
Choose the liquid (the most important part) that you want in your popsicle. Make sure it is something delicious, because it is the base of the popsicle and it will have the most impact on whether or not you enjoy them.
Put them in the freezer and wait anxiously for them to be finished. Once you eat one, refill the empty slot, so you never have to go popsicle-less.
My top two popsicles:
1. Fresh nectarines, raspberries and blueberries with coconut milk
2. Fresh strawberries and raspberries with pink lemonade
But of course you can freeze anything, and with your creative mind, your tastebuds are sure to enjoy this blazing summer.
