So our family goes through popsicles like crazy. We have already gone through about 2 bags of those ice pops, and there are only 3 people living in this house. There is just nothing more refreshing than a popsicle when you are outside playing, waiting for the grill to heat up, swimming, swinging, or even in the bathtub. 😉 Well I guess that goes to explain why we go through so many. I really mean it, we will use any excuse to grab one of those frozen beauties from the freezer. Also, it’s a great relief for the teething baby!
The other day while I was perusing around Ikea, looking for more things that I don’t need, I found this little popsicle container. I had one growing up, and would make all kinds of random flavored popsicles, and I remember the anticipation as we waiting for them to freeze fully, and finally be able to try our concoction. It was such a fun memory, so I decided to pick this up for about 2 bucks and give it a try for ourselves!
For our first time out the gate, we decided to try a pretty safe and simple recipe, but it was so good. So refreshing.
- Lemonade (we used an all natural lemonade)
- Pour some lemonade into the blender
- Add some strawberries (I know, this is getting really tricky)
- Blend. Blend. Blend. Dance. Blend. Dance. Blend.
- Pour blended gold into popsicle container
- Freeze for about 6 hours
- Enjoy! Preferably outside or someplace you don’t mind getting sticky
- Make your kids day 😉
*If you don’t have/don’t want to get a popsicle container, you can always use a cup with a spoon in it
Hope you all enjoy this! Some of the ones on our list to make are:
- Arnold Palmer
- Chocolate peanut butter
- Raspberry lemonade
- Pina Colada
