What makes a hot day even better but enjoying the sun with some ice cold popsicles! Making DIY ice popsicles at home means you can decide what ingredients you want to use and you can keep the kids entertained by letting them help.
They are super easy to make and you don’t need many ingredients for this DIY. Although having the actual moulds might make things a little easier, it isn’t a necessity. Have a look around your kitchen and you’ll find something to use. You can use ice cube trays, silicone cupcake moulds, or paper cups. If you are using any of these instead of ice popsicle moulds, cover the top with clingfilm, make holes for the sticks and they will keep them in place.
We thought we would give you a few ideas on some recipes to use.
Use different coloured fruits like, kiwi, strawberry, peach, blueberry or banana. Blend the individual fruits and one at a time, layer each fruit in the chosen mould.
Cut up fruits like grapes, oranges, raspberries, bananas and place them in the moulds. Pour in lemonade and freeze. You could also use orange juice if you don’t have lemonade.
Blend banana and nutella together until smooth and pour into mould. If you are allergic to dairy you can mix in dairy free chocolate chips to the blended banana.
You can mix orange juice in with vanilla or greek yogurt and you have yourself a creamsicle. Alternatively you can layer yogurt with the different blended fruits that you have.
