Is there anything more refreshing than snacking on a popsicle during the summer? This summer, instead of heading to the freezer section of the grocery store, learn how to make your own refreshing popsicles to keep in the freezer. Most popsicles are made with four ingredients or less and can be made in under 15 minutes. Also kids are going to be begging for what's basically a snack full of fruit. The hardest part of the whole process will be waiting for them to fully freeze. Give it a try for yourself and make one — or all — from the list below.
Pineapple Mango Popsicles
Jetting off to a tropical island might not be in the cards this summer, but you might be able to trick your mind into thinking you are there with these pineapple mango popsicles. When making these popsicles, try to use fresh fruit over frozen. It will enhance the flavors and makes the tropical feeling that much stronger. See how it all comes together on Eat With Clarity.
Calling all candy lovers! Get ready to fall head over heels in love with these rainbow popsicles. Now, these popsicles aren't your typical rainbow treat. Instead of being filled with layers of fruit to make a layered rainbow effect, they are filled with layers of rainbow candy — sour rainbow candy, that is! The sour candies then get combined with a lemon-lime soda, making for a true one-of-a-kind flavor. It might sound a little weird, but your taste buds will thank you for this one.
Fruit & Yogurt Popsicles
Want to make a big batch of popsicles but can't decide on just one flavor? The Woks Of Life has got a solution for you with their 4-ingredient fruit and yogurt popsicles. The summertime treats use the same three ingredients to make the base. So, what's the fourth ingredient? It's any type of fruit you like. The versatile recipe allows for the addition of strawberries, mango, or pineapple. Keep them separate or combine them all into one — the choice is yours.
Creamy Peach Popsicles
You won't have trouble convincing anyone to try these creamy peach popsicles this summer. In fact, the only convincing you'll need to do is to tell everyone that they can't have seconds — at least right away! These dreamy popsicles are made with coconut cream instead of regular coconut milk, making them extra creamy and smooth. Not a fan of peaches? Swap them out with any seasonal summer fruit like strawberries or raspberries for a creamy treat.
Strawberry Mango Popsicles
The hardest part about making these strawberry and mango popsicles? Waiting the long six hours for them to come together in the freezer. Because of the long wait time, you're probably better off making these the night before. That way, they'll be ready and waiting after a long day at the beach or an afternoon spent outside by the pool.
Mint Chocolate Chip Greek Yogurt Popsicles
Not all popsicles have to be filled with fruit. Case in point: these mint chocolate chip Greek yogurt popsicles. These popsicles have everything you love about mint chocolate chip ice cream but in a lighter and more refreshing form. And don't worry — even though they're made with healthy Greek yogurt, they're still loaded with chocolate chips and finished off with a crisp chocolate shell.
Trick your eyes and satisfy your tastebuds all at the same time with these watermelon popsicles. These popsicles are all about the layers — a strawberry and watermelon layer with chocolate chips, a coconut cream layer, and a kiwi layer. You'll have to freeze everything individually and wait for each layer to set to create the watermelon effect, but it's well worth the wait.
