Who says kids are the only ones that can enjoy popsicles? These delicious homemade popsicles are for adults only, healthy and delicious!
I can't believe there are only a few weeks of summer left. I am holding onto it for dear life, but also looking forward to some semblance of a routine once these kiddies go back to school.
So for now, let's just enjoy it with some of my homemade popsicles. Cheers!
Why You Should Make These Popsicles
These are so simple to make, you can easily use whatever fruit you'd like. I chose different types of melons and then added some blueberries for some color.
The beauty of these babies is that they are actually HEALTHY too! They are made with green tea and contain no added sugar (except for the natural sugar that the fruit contains) so these are guilt free too!
I also loved the fresh mint in these popsicles, but you can always leave it out or chop it finely if you'd prefer it. Just remember these popsicles contain wine so they have a little kick to them!
The fruit also has a bit of a kick to them so be careful when you are eating the fruit! But who doesn't need a little kick at the end of summer?
I could eat these all. year. long. I bet you will too.
Recipe FAQ's and Expert Tips
Yes, they will still freeze, they might just melt a little faster which means you might need to eat them a little faster 🙂 Just joking, they might melt slightly quicker but they still stay together for you to enjoy your popsicle.
Don't worry, you can still make these homemade popsicles even without the molds. You can use plastic cups, muffin tins or ice cube trays. The possibilities are endless if you get a little creative!
Always store these in the freezer of course. You can leave them in their molds or you can remove them from the molds and place in a plastic bag, making sure to place parchment paper or wax paper in between to prevent sticking.
