How to Make Homemade Popsicles

Posted by on May 24th, 2012

Ice Cream Pop | Guarantee Green BlogPopsicles are a favorite warm weather treat, and a yummy way to cool down on a hot day. However most store bought popsicles are loaded with food coloring, sugar and high fructose corn syrup. Instead of spending your money on these unhealthy treats, make your own popsicles at home and enjoy guilt free.

Start off by purchasing popsicle molds. These inexpensive, plastic pop holders are reusable and create absolutely no waste! For super simple popsicles just find your favorite juices and pour them into the mold. Once they are frozen, voila – popsicle.

However much you enjoy frozen fruit juice, sometimes it’s fun to go gourmet. Mixing fresh, pureed fruit with greek yogurt creates a flavored frozen yogurt that really does melt in your mouth. Follow a recipe or be creative and make up new flavors on your own.
