There’s more sun to soak up these last days of summer and I am going to take full advantage of it. Hold off on the pumpkin recipes and make some homemade popsicles before it gets too chilly!
These would be such a great treat for a labor day barbecue. I love making homemade popsicles (like these Cherry Coke Popsicles) because you can be so creative with it.
You can blend up your favorite smoothie and freeze it into a popsicle or experiment with whatever is in your fridge. This creamy lemonade popsicle is one of my favorites to make because its so refreshing but not too tart.
You can make popsicles using just about anything. In a pinch, a paper cup and a popsicle stick work just fine.
We have a few favorites that we use:
Nuby Garden Fresh Popsicle Molds – These work great for babies and toddlers. We use these in our popular breastmilk popsicles for teething babies. The handle is perfect for little hands (they are even fun to chew on when kids want a break from their popsicle).
These are always in the freezer at my house and we are always experimenting with new things.
Ikea Popsicle Molds – These are great, basic popsicle molds that are perfect for the bigger people in the house. If you have an Ikea near you, they are super affordable. If not, you can still get them on Amazon for a great price.
These are perfect if you need several sets. We’ve used these for years and they hold up really well.
Zipzicle – These are fantastic because they are super cheap and disposable so you don’t have to worry about them getting lost. We use these for school lunches or when we want to make popsicles for a crowd.
If you are hosting a party, these are prefect. You can make homemade popsicles ahead of time so they’ll be ready to go and you don’t have to worry about keeping track of any of your popsicle molds.
Norpro Popsicle Mold – If you want something that makes classic looking popsicles and don’t mind a bit of a splurge, the Norpro mold is the way to go. This is our favorite popsicle maker and it allows you to make more popsicles in one batch than the other options.
1 cup Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice
1/2 cup Sugar
2 1/2 cups Water
Vanilla Ice Cream
Blend Ingredients Together Until Smooth.
Let the mixture settle to get some of the bubbles out, then pour into popsicle molds. When frozen, run the molds under warm water for a few seconds and they should loosen easily.
Makes about 6-8 popsicles depending on your mold size.
To store, wrap in saran wrap.
