When the temperature hits 70 degrees, I start dreaming about popsicles. While store-bought ones are good, I prefer ones made at home. Fresh fruit, creamy milks and chocolates along with summer vegetables make some of the best tasting popsicles around. Here are some great popsicle recipes from around the web for your enjoyment.
Summer Berry Popsicles
Girl on the Range's Summer Berry Popsicles are the perfect summer popsicle. They take just a few ingredients and a bit of patience to make. The simple flavors of summer berries such as blueberries, blackberries and strawberries with coconut milk and a hint of honey make a delicious dairy-free treat. Freeze in layers for a show stopping popsicle.
Nutella Coconut Popsicles
Katherine in Brooklyn offers up a chocolatey treat with her Nutella Coconut Popsicles. Reminiscent of the childhood favorite, Fudgesicle, these popsicles have a more grown-up flavor. Dipped in chocolate once they are frozen with fun toppings like nuts, coconut and sprinkles, these will be a hit in your house. Bring these out at your next backyard BBQ!
Blueberry Lime Yogurt Popsicles
This is a favorite popsicle in our house, mainly because I let the kids enjoy them at breakfast. The fresh blueberries, creamy yogurt and just a touch of honey make the Blueberry Lime Yogurt Popsicles healthy enough for first thing in the morning but tasty enough to want all day long. Sub in your favorite summer berry for great delicious flavor.
