Popsicle or ice pop is a liquid based frozen treat. It’s made from fruit juice or milk shakes. You can make them using any combination you like.
Its one of the best things to have during summer. Most of the fruits blend well to form a popsicle. Its an ultimate frozen treat on a normal day or any gatherings. It’s basically a heaven on a stick!
You can use any pulpy or watery fruits, berries or pineapple if you like. Some fruits may be sour. You can add sugar or honey to sweeten it as per your taste. Make purees of each fruit separately. Never grind them watery when you want to layer different juices separately. One juice will get into the other juice if its watery.
My kids love having it this way instead of having it in the form of a fruit. If you have aged or diabetic people at home, you can make the juice without adding sugar and freeze it. Add sugar to the ones that you feel is very sour.
Chill out with our frozen treat and have fun under the sun!
Ingredients that I have used
Grind the mangoes and sieve it. They have fibres in it. I added 2tbsp water and honey and grinded some of the mangoes. I grinded some using milk.
Next I grinded watermelon with 4 mint leaves. It’s an awesome combination. Adding mint leaves is optional. Since the watermelons were sweet, I haven’t added sugar to it. I added 2 tbspn lemon juice to it to enhance the flavour with little sourness. I didn’t add water to grind the watermelon. Its already watery and so cannot be layered. This is to make plain watermelon popsicles.
I grinded the strawberries without water but added very little sugar. You can substitute sugar with honey if you want.
I grinded the kiwis with very little water because I couldn’t grind it plain.
I grinded blueberries adding little sugar. I have sieved it. You can add honey if you want. You can use grapes instead of blueberries too.
Popsicles taste good not only when they are sweet but also little sour. These mangoes are slightly sour or else you can add little lemon juice to it.
Next I mixed the milk with homemade Nutella. You can even use hot chocolate. Don’t use a whole glass of milk together. Mix the Nutella in little milk first. Sieve the milk so that it doesn’t have any lumps in it
Get rid of the extra water in the curd and whip it by adding honey or little sugar.
I have grinded the orange juice last else it will taste bitter.
To make the popsicles I added 2tbsp of mango first, then 2tbsp of thick strawberry, 2tbsp thick kiwi juice. This is done with 3 flavours.
I made the next one using just watermelon juice. Stir it well before pouring into the mould. It would be thick at the bottom of the glass.
Pouring the Nutella milk to one of the mould which is my lil son’s favourite.
Let’s alternate the fruit mixes in the other moulds.
Adding 1tbsp of mango milk, 1tbsp strawberry, little kiwi, little watery orange juice over it.
You can layer it in any flavours you want.
Pouring the curd mix to one mould. You can add any fruit to it. I am adding blueberry to it now. You can swirl it using a stick to get a marble design.
Layering curd and mango in the next mould. You can do it any way you want.
Fill the rest of the moulds layering the juices alternately. If you don’t have a popsicle mould with you, you can use a steel glass or even an ice tray and use toothpicks or any stick.
In the last moulds I am layering fresh fruits. Adding some blueberries, finely chopped strawberries, mangoes, kiwis or any you like.
I made a lemonade with cold water, lemon, mint and sugar. Pour this over the cut fruits popsicle mould.
Cover the moulds and keep them overnight for best results or at least overnight.
Insert sticks inside the holes and freeze them till they are done.
Once they are done, hold the moulds under running water for few seconds and then slowly demould it by pulling them out.
It doesn’t stay out for long since they are made of fresh juice. Have it as soon as you take them out of the freezer.
