Strawberry Lemonade Popsicles

Submitted by: Natalie Clamp, Chic Sweets

Yields: 10 to 12 popsicles

These are such a great summer popsicles—healthy and delicious!!! I love to make these with my boys and it's a great alternatives to those popsicles you find at your regular grocery store!

  • 1 pound of strawberries, hullied (with the tops cut off)
  • ¼ cup of granulated sugar
  • 2 cups of lemonade (if you have the time, you can make your own lemonade, from scratch, but store bought will work out just as fine).

Directions

  1. In a blender, combine the strawberries, sugar and lemonade. Blend on lowest settings, just until combined and with pieces of strawberries still visible. No more than 5-10 seconds, depending on your blender's power.

 

  1.  Carefully divide the mixture into your popsicle molds with a teaspoon or tablespoon and freeze. Depending on the size of popsicle mold you have, will take anywhere from 4 to 6 hours.

Fun thoughts: Want to add a bit of creaminess to your popsicle? Add 8 ounces of (vanilla) Greek yogurt. Add the creaminess and you don't have to feel guilty about it! High in protein and great source of calcium!

 

 

Mudslide Popsicle

Submitted by: Natalie Clamp, Chic Sweets

Yields: 10 to 12 popsicles

What a great treat for adults in the summer heat!! This one is a great dessert "poptail" and always a big hit! Just be careful, since it contains alcohol they tend to melt quicker—so you'll have to eat them quicker ;)

  • 16 oz. Greek vanilla yogurt (I like to stick with Greek yogurt because it's thicker, less liquid)
  • 1 banana
  • 3 oz. Kahlua (I splurge a little and go with Vanilla Flavor Kahlua—it's delicious)
  • 3 oz. Bailey's Irish Cream
  • 4 tablespoons grated dark chocolate

Directions

  1. Place all the ingredients in a blender and mix at low speed, 1 minute.

 

  1. Carefully divide the mixture into your popsicle molds with a teaspoon or tablespoon and freeze. Depending on the size of popsicle mold you have, will take anywhere from 8 to 10 hours. *Popsicles with alcohol take a bit longer than fruit popsicles

Fun thoughts: Now that you had a taste of what a "poptail" is like, think about what your favorite drink is and turn it into a popsicle! Watermelon Margarita, White Sangria, Mojitos…the possibilities are endless!
