I think I’ve officially picked up a new obsession. The good news is it’s a healthy one.
I featured my first popsicle recipe early last week, and I already have the urge to refill the molds with something new each time they empty.
To me, summer just screams popsicles. Growing up in Florida had me craving some sort of frozen ice pop almost every single day. There’s no denying that I am a popsicle and slushy lover through and through.
While most ice pops have an icy, slushy texture, these frozen fruit popsicles have a smooth and creamy texture. If you’re not a fan of that consistency, simply leave out the almond milk and stick to the fresh and frozen fruits!
2 cups chopped cantaloupe
1/2 cup frozen strawberries
1/2 cup frozen mangoes
2 cups almond milk
4 Tbsp. agave nectar or honey
(for a less creamy pop, eliminate the almond milk)
(makes six pops)
1. Combine ingredients into a high-powered blender. Pour mixture into popsicle molds.
2. Place into freezer to harden for at least 3-4 hours, or overnight depending on consistency.
3. Before taking the pops out of their molds, run them under warm water to loosen them up.
4. Remove ice pops from molds and enjoy a light and healthy treat!
Popsicles are probably the easiest recipe (outside of smoothies) you can make!
Simply gather whatever ingredients your little heart desires, throw them into a blender…
Pour that mixture into pop molds…
And bite into a bar of fruity goodness any time of the day.
I got the idea for these frozen fruit pops thanks to a similar ingredient combination and recipe that came with the pop molds. I varied the frozen fruit, added more cantaloupe, substituted almond milk, and think the result turned out great!
If you feel like getting creative with your own frozen fruit popsicle recipe, feel free to leave the ingredients you used in the comments section. I’m always interested in trying new suggestions!
