Delicious Popsicles your Kids will Enjoy
July 31, 2012
Today my daughter finished our last homemade fudgsicle (recipe to follow), so we made these beautiful refreshing lemonade-sicles. Popsicle molds come in a variety of sizes and shapes. You can buy ones that have handles with attached drip catchers or ones that you put wooden sticks into. Most are made with plastic, so be sure to buy one that is BPA free.
Raspberry Lemonade Popsicles
Spoon 1-2 Tbsp fresh or frozen raspberries into the bottom of your popsicle molds - enough to fill the molds halfway.
Squeeze the juice out of 2 lemons into a pitcher. Add 1-3 tsp liquid stevia extract (depending on your taste). Add 4 cups water, stirring to mix. Pour lemonade into the popsicles mould to fill.
Top with sticks and lids, or whatever system your molds use. Place into freezer, allowing popsicles 3-4 hours to freeze solid. Enjoy!
Hint: If you've got extra lemonade - pour over ice cubes in a tall glass and enjoy!
In a blender, place 2 ripe bananas, and your choice of the following: 2 Tbsp chocolate protein powder, 2 Tbsp Choc - A - Lot Vega Shake and Go smoothie powder, or 2 Tbsp fair trade cocoa powder (we like the Choc-A-Lot and added Camino 100% cocoa powder). Next add 2-3 cups soy/almond/rice milk and blend until smooth.
Pour into popsicle molds and top woth sticks and lids. Place in freezer and allow 3-4 hours to freeze solid. Enjoy!
In a blender, place 1 cup in season fresh fruit (strawberries, raspberries, melon, now or blueberries or peaches at summer's end). Add 1-3 tsp liquid stevia extract and 2-3 cups filtered water. Blend until smooth.
Pour into popsicle molds. Place in freezer and allow 3-4 hours to freeze solid.
Try mixing and matching fruits to see what you and your children enjoy the most.
Hint: to get the popsicles out of the molds, run under warm water while wiggling or twisting the handle until the popsicle slides out.
