One summertime staple that many people enjoy are popsicles. This refreshing frozen treat is often a great way to help keep you refreshed and hydrated on a hot summer day. And, because there are virtually endless ways to make your own popsicles at home, you can always try something new, making it much less likely that you’ll get tired of them. What’s more, popsicles don’t take a ton of equipment to make. Whether you freeze your treats in small disposable cups or use trays that are specifically for making popsicles, the end result will taste just the same.
Here are a few kinds of popsicles you can make at home:
- Fruit juice – Perhaps the easiest way to make popsicles is to simply freeze your favorite fruit juice, or combination of fruit juices. You can also add vegetable juice to make popsicles with extra health benefits.
- Textured – You can blend fresh or frozen fruit and add it to your juice mixture to give your popsicles a little extra texture and flavor.
- Creamy – For popsicles that are a little creamier, blend your favorite frozen fruit with a can of coconut milk and a little bit of your favorite liquid sweetener, and then freeze. The end result will be an easier, healthier alternative to homemade ice cream.
No matter which version of this treat you decide on, for best results, let the popsicles harden a little before adding the sticks so that they stand up straight rather than fall to the side.
