It’s getting really hot here and every single day its a challenge to think of new ways to prepare something refreshing and cooling to beat the heat. As a kid I have memories of making mango iced lollies with mango juice in ice cube trays as mangoes are in abundance in every Indian household during the scorching summer. The late afternoons were mostly spent in sucking on those juicy yellow lollies, chatting with friends and this used to be my favourite summer activity. For me homemade Popsicles are what great summers are made of .
And as I searched frantically for a healthy summer treat for kids on the net, I came across this refreshing and colourful fruit based frozen treat on Pinterest which was sure to please the kids as well as adults. Just one look at the fruity, bright Popsicle and you would any day ditch the store brought ones.
If you are a sucker for sweet and fruity treats then there’s plenty to love about those DIY Watermelon, Kiwi, Coconut Popsicle. As for freezing the pops you don’t need a Popsicle tray or a special kit, a variety of kitchen items like a muffin tray, Dixie cups, parfait glasses or the ice cube trays will also do the trick. And as for keeping the Popsicle stick in place an easy peasy way is to cover the glasses or cups with a sheet of aluminium foil and poke the stick through for placement.
All in all its a fun summer treat which is an absolute hit with the kids…so go ahead and make your summer awesome. These colourful, fruity, healthy Popsicles go to the 40 th Foodie Monday BlogHop for which the theme is Summer Coolers.
