How to Have a Sweet Summer! | Berry Lemonade Popsicles

Beauty, DIY, Fashion, Hauls, Lifestyle, Recipes, Reviews, Trends

What’s a summer day by the pool without something cool and refreshing to go along with it?! Instead of simply drinking my favorite beverages I decided to incorporate them into a delicious ice pop! Here you will find how to make your very own strawberry lemonade, white cranberry and raspberry treats. Enjoy!

You will need:

  • A juice of your choice
    • I went with White Cran-peach from Ocean Spray, it’s not too sweet and has a super refreshing flavor.
  •  Lemonade
    • I chose to use a strawberry lemonade k-cup which I brewed with my Keurig and let chill in the refrigerator before adding to my pops.
    • Of course, you can use any pre-made lemonade of your choice or better yet, make your own!
  • Fresh Berries for flavor and decoration
    • I chose raspberries because they are just so pretty!
  • Popsicle molds
    • If you don’t have these handy, they can be substituted by using small cups (like Dixie cups) and popsicle sticks.

What to Do:

  • I was hoping to create a layered look on my ice pops so first, I poured my lemonade into the molds and let them sit in the freezer for about 2 hours until the consistency was no longer slushy.
  • After that I simply poured my White Cran-peach juice on top, which gave the pops a fun “color-blocking” look.
  • Before placing the ice pops back in the freezer I cut some raspberries into small pieces and placed them into my mixture.
    • This later left the pops looking super cute and tasting extra delicious!

I definitely recommend making your own DIY ice pops! They can be so easily tailored to the flavor preferences of you and your friends. Perfect for mid-summer barbecues and pool days, I can’t wait to make more of these! If you end up making your own summer treats like these, leave a comment below and let me know what flavors you chose to combine!
