DIY Popsicles Part II

June 16, 2015

Let's have a Popsicle parrrrrrrrr-tay!


In honor of staying cool in this disrespectful heat, I'm starting a new summer series which will hither forth be known as, The Popsicle Party. I will be sharing a new frozen treat every Friday this summer, and of course, you can link up with me to share your favorite recipes.

As I told you in the initial DIY Popsicle video, I have been having a ton of fun making new combinations with my Foodworks Ice Pop Makers. Last time I shared two healthy and easy recipes (Strawberry Cheesecake and Orange Strawberry Smoothie) and a Root Beer Float pop that I tried to justify as a healthier option (read about that HERE). Today, we're going to try 3 more delicious mixes inspired by my favorite summer desserts and drinks: the Key Lime Pie Pop, Grapefruit Pink Lemonade Pop and the Blue Lagoon Mocktail Pop.

Each of these recipes is 3 ingredients or less and takes less than 5 minutes to put together. The hardest part for me is waiting for them to freeze, because they're all edible in their original form, but I promise it's worth it. The recipes are below.

Blue Lagoon Mocktail Pops

This is an oldie (to me), but goodie! I did a whole blog post on the Blue Lagoon Mockails (here), and figured out that it makes an amazingly flavorful popsicle.

  • Hawaiian Punch Berry Blue Typhoon Single Drink Powder
  • White Grape Sparkling Water
  • Ginger Ale
In a 16 oz cup, mix 1 full package of the single serve drink powder with equal parts of the sparkling water and ginger ale. Stir the drink until all the powder has dissolved, then pour it into the ice pop maker. Freeze until solid, then serve.

Key Lime Pie

In case you didn't know, I have an ongoing love affair with cupcakes, cookies and pies. One of my favorite life discoveries is Key lime Pie Flavored yogurt. Add some crushed graham crackers, and immediately decieve you sweet tooth with this healthier option.
  • Key Lime Pie Yogurt
  • Finely Crushed Graham Crackers
  • Juice of a Key Lime
Mix the Graham Crackers and Key Lime juice together until it's crumbly. Scoop 2-3 TBSP of the yogurt into the popsicle mold, then layer the graham cracker mix in top. Alternate layers until you get to the top. Leave about 1 inch of space from the top to allow the liquids to expand. Freeze it, then eat it... Unless you made it for other people, then you should be a great hostess and share it with them first.

Grapefruit Pink Lemonade

This is my newest favorite summer blend. It's quite literally the perfect blend of sweet and tart. It's simply frozen perfection.

  • Pink Lemonade
  • Fresh Grapefruit Juice
  • Sugar (optional)
Combine equal parts of Pink Lemonade and Grapefruit Juice. Add sugar, if necessary. Mix the drink. Freeze and serve.
