FREEZE! Before you start making these recipes, check out some of our helpful tips:
1 – Choose the right mold
There are so many options of different ice molds you can use! Are you planning on serving these at a summer party? Shop for some molds related to your theme! From ice cream shaped molds, to sun shapes and diamond rings, the options are endless. If you’re going for something simple, use paper or plastic cups – they actually work quite well!
2 – Find your favorite fresh fruit
One of the reasons we love popsicles so much is that they’re pretty much guilt-free AND you can enjoy our favorite food group (fruit, duh!). By using fresh, seasonal fruit, there is no reason to feel guilty about indulging in two (maybe even 3) of these sweet treats.
3 – Find a fun filling
In addition to your fresh fruit, you need a liquid to hold the popsicles together while freezing. Get creative by using different fresh fruit juices, coconut milk, almond milk, or even a blend of fruit and yogurt.
4 – Get creative with your combinations
The more creative your combinations, the more fun! We listed some SWEET options above – the further down the list, the more creative the recipes will be! If you ask us, why not try them all?
5 – Last not but least…
Don’t forget that liquid expands when it freezes, so make sure to leave some room at top of the mold when filling! Another helpful tip is to freeze your popsicles for 25-30 minutes before inserting the popsicle sticks. No one wants a popsicle that falls off before you have time to enjoy it!
