A summer favourite in my home growing up was the “juicicle” ice pops my mother would make. They were simply frozen juice, usually apple or orange, put into the store bought molds but we absolutely loved them. I have recently dabbled in making the “juicicle” a little more exciting by adding ingredients like fresh fruit to the mold, and also freezing fruit smoothies.
Here is a round up of 5 refreshing and tasty ice pop ideas that I came across and can’t wait to try!
Fudge Popsicles – The Smitten Kitchen
Decadent, chewy, and chocolately these pops are the perfect desert to cool you down on a hot summer night.
Pure Grape Ice Pops – Canadian Family
Refreshing and healthy, frozen all-natural grape juice sounds divine!!
Banana Blueberry Swirl Popsicles – Martha Stewart
The queen of all things food and entertaining has done it again with this genius pop combo. The sweetness and creaminess of the banana in combination with the tart blueberries, YUM YUM!
Lemon Buttermilk Ice Pops – Epicurious
This recipe reminds me of a refreshing lemon gelato – one of my favourites! Tart and a bit creamy.
Pineapple Pina Colada Ice Pops – Canadian Family
This one is for the grown-ups! Is there is a better way to enjoy a cocktail than to have it frozen, on a stick? I don’t think so! Such a fun idea for entertaining, or just keeping a stock in the freezer for hot summer nights. This combination is just one of many I found online. I can’t wait to try them all!
Enjoy and stay cool!
