What’s a summer’s day without complaining about the sun and without feeling like you’re going to melt unless you get an icecream? – that second! And what better way to cool down than a delicious home-made Popsicle?

Popsicle recipes generally move around the same technique:

  • mix everything in a blender until smooth
  • add some extra sugar if you want
  • then strain the mix with a fine sieve and push out as much liquid as you can
  • then pour into Popsicle molds and freeze (overnight)

Ta-da!

You don’t even need Popsicle molds, you can use cupcake molds or yogurt containers. As for the “everything” part, here are some summery ideas you could try!

Watermelon Popsicle

Ingredients: watermelon, raspberries, sugar, a little lemon juice.

Strawberry and Basil Popsicle

The trick with this one is to use very little fresh basil (a few leaves), that you boil in a sugar syrup.

Ingredients: Strawberry, basil, sugar

Pineapple and Banana Popsicle

You’ll like this because it’s not overly sweet and because the banana gives it a creamy texture.
