Icy cold popsicles are an old-fashioned summertime delight. We love to make them with all our favorite juices—Watermelon or Melon, Peach, or Blueberry, or almost anything blended with Lemon or Lime. Healthy deliciousness on a stick!
When creating your own blend, remember that juice freezes hard, so you’ll want to include pureed fruit to soften the texture. Try Strawberry-Cucumber, made with pureed fresh cucumber, crushed frozen strawberries, lime juice, lime zest and honey. Mango-Coconut is a tropical treat, using Mango juice and fresh fruit puree, and, just the tiniest pinch of cinnamon for warmth.
Of course, if your garden is overflowing with fresh herbs, you can make freezer pops using a couple strongly brewed cups of your favorite herbal teas. Chamomile-Honey is sunny and light. Lemon-Thyme is another lovely combination, or try substituting in Basil, Mint or Verbena. Experimenting is a joy—and you can always try out new flavors by making a few ice-cube testers.
For the prettiest ice pops of all, however, set edible flower petals—or whole blossoms—adrift. Pansies, marigolds, violets, roses, nasturtiums, borage—or the smallest blossoms from your fresh herbs.
Cool off, share—and enjoy!
