As a kid, nothing screamed summer more than the upbeat chime of the ice cream truck and it’s hard not to associate warm temperatures with cold, creamy ice cream and popsicles.
Last summer, I purchased a popsicle mold and began dabbling in making my own popsicles at home. I was amazed at just how easy it is to make your own sweet treats and love the fact that when I make popsicles at home, I know everything that’s going in them and can play around with tons of different flavor combinations.
Some of our favorites from last summer:
- Pineapple mint
- Coconut banana
- Strawberry mango
- Banana chocolate chip
I’m hoping to get a little more creative this year and try my hand at some cocktail-inspired popsicles… But I suppose I’ll have to keep things booze-free around here until after our little one arrives. Since my mojito and strawberry champagne-flavored popsicles will have to wait, for the time being, my summertime beverage-inspired popsicle will be this delicious strawberry lemonade beauty!
These pretty pink popsicles are coming your way today thanks to a collaboration with Silk!
Earlier this week, I made half a dozen strawberry lemonade popsicles with fresh lemon juice, frozen strawberries, vanilla almond milk, a touch of maple syrup and Silk Dairy-Free Yogurt Alternative made with real fruit (and no artificial flavors or colors)! Only five simple ingredients. Not too shabby, right?!
These popsicles are refreshing, lightly sweet, dairy-free and oh-so-creamy thanks to Silk Dairy-Free and lots of blended strawberries. They come together quickly and after popping them in the freezer overnight, you’ll have a flavorful dessert on your hands, perfect for a hot spring or summer night!Print
