It is officially summer! YAYYYYY!
I don’t know about where you are, but here in Boston it is starting to get hot and humid.
The heat isn’t so bad, but when you have that humidity it SUCKS. I feel like I need to take a shower as soon as I step outside.
Let’s talk about something serious, k. Ready?
let me back track for 2 seconds and talk about an even more important subject…ICE CREAM.
I love ice cream.
YEAH. Its pretty simple.
The thing about ice cream though, is that its full of fat! I know, I know…you can get dairy free ice-cream and other stuff like it, but personally, if I am going to eat ice cream, I’m just going to eat the real thing.
That leads me to popsicle’s!
Popsicle’s can be a fun way to get that frozen treat fix without worry about what’s in it, especially if you make them at home. You can make the with fresh fruit, purees, yogurt, herbs, etc.
Customization is key, and since I’m doing this whole 80/20 thing, HERE, I might as well reward myself with some healthy treats!
These popsicle’s were super easy to make and gave me all the sludgy, icy feels when I bit into them.
Like I said, playing around with flavors and having fun with these popsicle’s is half the fun!
I bought a popsicle mold off Amazon, here, which came with a convenient lit on top which had slits in it for the popsicle sticks.
They freeze really well and can be ready to eat by the end of the day if you do them in the morning. I would recommend over night if you can.
My recipes called for some coconut passionfruit water which I found at Wegman’s, but if you can’t find it, just use regular coconut water or any flavor you like!
These popsicle’s are a great alternative to the kinds you buy at the store, well, first, you know what’s in them + there isn’t any refined sugar in them, so you can feel good about what you are eating.
Now, I know you def want a popsicle now. Get to making them!
What is your favorite popsicle flavor?
