Popsicles can be a fun way to cool down during the summer. But rather than just running to the store to buy posicles, consider buying a mold and creating your own. Kids love working in the kitchen and then being able to eat and share the “fruits of the labor”. Here are a few Summer Popsicle Ideas to get you started!
Summer Popsicle Ideas
Gummy Bear Popsicles – Add a few gummy bears to the mold and then fill with Sprite and freeze!
Strawberry Yogurt Popsicles – For these healthy treats simply layer strawberry puree and vanilla yogurt in your molds and freeze!
Banana Nutella Popsicles – Puree bananas and then mix in Nutella until a creamy blend. Then fill molds and freeze!
Root Beer Float Popsicles - Pour a small amount of the root beer into each popsicle mold. Evenly distribute softened vanilla ice cream between the popsicle molds in spoonfuls. Pour root beer into molds in small amounts allowing the foam to die back before pouring more to fill molds to the top.
Note: When trying to get a popsicle stick in place it helps to use foil: Place a sheet of foil on top of the popsicle mold top and insert sticks (the foil keeps the sticks in place).
