Raspberry Lemonade Popsicles
Refreshing summer popsicles to beat the heat. Made with fresh Raspberries and homemade Lemonade, this is a must try this summer.
Summertime equals cool treats. Nothing like beating the heat with a homemade popsicle made with fresh ingredients like this Raspberry Lemonade Popsicle. Made with fresh Raspberries & homemade lemonade with freshly squeezed lemon juice. Made with just three ingredients these come together so easily and are always a hit. This time of the year, our refrigerator is stocked with homemade popsicles. A great way for the kids and adults to cool down after being outdoors on a bright sunny day. If you love citrusy tangy flavors, then this one if for you.
Those little hands are my 5 yr olds. He loves making things with me in the kitchen. I started engaging him in the kitchen early. you can check out my post on 10 Ideas how to engage kids in the kitchen, here. So making these popsicles is a part of our summer fun. My observation is that when kids get involved in making something, they look forward to the end result and enjoy the end product even more. It’s not only rewarding to them but for us too. Now that he is 5 he helps me by adding the raspberries in the blender. A few attempts at squeezing the lemons before he passed them on to me for the final work. Adding the sweetener and then finally pushing the blender button to get the right consistency.
Like I mentioned earlier these come together very easily, it’s literally making a raspberry puree. Most recipes involve straining the puree to get rid of the seeds, but I like to keep them as raspberry seeds are a great source of dietary fiber, fatty acids and antioxidants. Add freshly squeezed lemon juice and a healthy sweetener like monk fruit extract and then finally water. Pour the liquid into popsicle molds and enjoy these delicious Raspberry Lemonade Popsicles in a hot sunny day. The flavors are sure to tantalize your tastebuds. These are super yum!!! Try it yourself!
