As the temperatures soar, nothing feels quite as refreshing as a summer Popsicle. The perfect mixture of sugar, ice and fun, these bite sized treats can be tonnes of fun to make and enjoy with friends. Here are a few easy breezy popsicles to try making at home.
Strawberry & Yoghurt
Blend together the following ingredients
1 cup fresh strawberries, roughly chopped
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 cup Greek yogurt
Mix some of the strawberries with the sugar until a soft mixture forms. Add the mixture to the remaining strawberries and the lemon juice and mix in a blender to form a smooth puree. Pour the mixture into a mold. Bananas or mangoes are equally delicious and nutritious substitutes.
Grapefruit & Vodka
Mix together the juice of one grapefruit, 12 strawberries and 150 ml of Vodka in a blender. Pour the mixture in to a mold and freeze for at least 6 hours. This is a great alternative to cocktail a for your next picnic with the girls!
