| For this homemade popsicle recipe you will need 6 popsicle molds + 6 popsicle wooden sticks |
Let’s talk about homemade popsicles for a second, because it is the season for cold snacks that are wholesome and delicious and good for you; and this popsicle recipe loaded with mixed berries fits the bill perfectly.
Really, anyone can make these popsicles, you just need some popsicle molds, a mini food processor like this or this , frozen or fresh berries, a2 Milk® and a little bit of citrus juice. I also added a little splash of vanilla extract because let’s be honest: vanilla does make everything better and just elevates things to a really special level.
Tough you can use fresh fruit, you’ll notice I used frozen berries in this popsicle recipe. Reason being is that your popsicles will be frozen way faster than If you were to use fresh fruit. Almost instant gratification, and who can say no to that right ? Especially If you have company or a couple of kids waiting around for that special refreshing treat.
Note worthy: to easily remove the Popsicles from their molds make sure to run them under some warm water for a minute or so before wiggling them out of their shell. Also a great idea is to serve them on ice If you are entertaining a crowd, that way they will stay nicely frozen a while longer, especially if it is scorching hot outside.
It’s been a while since we talked about a2 Milk® and today’s popsicle recipe is the perfect occasion to remind you all why I love it so much.
