The days are getting warmer (dare I say hot) and a cold popsicle is a welcomed treat mid day. Sure, we’ve had our fair share of Otter Pops this summer, but as an adult there’s only so many of those I can consume.
Here’s a few questions people have asked about homemade popsicles
Can babies have homemade popsicles?
If you are using a fruit/other ingredients that is already in your child’s diet, a homemade popsicle is a perfect treat for them during the hot summer months. It is also a great idea while they are teething as the cold helps sooth their gums. You can see how we made some teething popsicles here. Also grab some teething popsicle molds.
How to keep homemade popsicles from sticking?
The easiest way to get homemade popsicles out of their mold is actually really easy. One they have fully set up in the freezer, dip them into a bowl or sink of warm water for just a few seconds and your popsicles should slide right out. When dipping them, don’t go all the way up to the stick otherwise your popsicle may release from the stick, and we don’t want that!
How to make homemade popsicles creamy?
There are a few ways to make a creamy popsicle. Obviously the most common would be with some sort of dairy; Yogurt, Milk, Heavy Cream etc. Another way would be to use a creamy fruit like a banana. Obviously a banana would affect the flavor, so you could also use something creamy like an avocado which has a more mild flavor than a banana.
Is homemade popsicles healthy?
The answer to this strictly depends on the popsicle you choose to make. You can make them entirely of fresh fruit and even add in veggies; which of course would make them healthy. You can make them a little more “unhealthy” by adding in the heavy cream, sugars, artificial flavors etc. Check out all the recipes and decide which one is on the “healthy” scale that fits your wants.
