Weekend Project: Make Homemade Popsicles!

By mahir | May 19, 2011

Now that it’s late May, it’s time to break out your popsicle molds and craft some refreshing and light summer desserts. In style across the country, popsicles are appearing in flavors such as strawberry rhubarb or blackberry lemon verbena. Whether you want to go for a classic like orange or perhaps try one of these new flavor concoctions, popsicles are easy to make and a fun weekend project. 

Making popsicles is a great way to get your kids in the kitchen – popsicles only take a few ingredients to make and are easy.

Here are three fun combinations to get your started! Combine the ingredients and freeze in popsicle molds. Try a basic version or something with a fun design to get your kids even more excited!

1. Peaches and Cream: Place 4 large ripe peaches, peeled, pitted, and roughly diced in a blender. Blend until pureed and then stir in 1 cup whole milk, 1 tablespoon agave syrup, and a pinch of freshly ground nutmeg. Stir to combine and then divide between popsicle molds. Freeze until solid.

2. Mixed Berry Blast: Pick up a few cartons of your favorite berries from the market, and combine them in a blender with water. (Use a ratio of 2 cups berries to 1/4 cup water for a super-berry popsicle.) Stir in two tablespoons of greek yogurt if you want a creamy version. Divide between popsicle molds. Freeze until solid.

3. Chocolate-Dipped Coconut-Banana: An elegant twist on the childhood ice cream truck classics, try this recipe for kitchen savvy kids who have a little bit more experience. It combines rich and delicious coconut milk with the flavors of cinnamon, vanilla, and almond milk.
