((i scream! you scream! series)) SEVEN easy popsicle recipes



We are shuffling posts around and I think I've finally found the "flow" for weekly posts. Giveaway posts will now be on Thursday until further notice :)


It's time for round two of this fun little series. This week, it's all about popsicles!




Each of these recipes make 1-3 popsicles, depending on size. I didn't want 6 of each, just wanted to sample some fun gourmet popsicle recipes! You can totally adjust each ingredient proportion to taste. Just wing it!

oh, fudge!  
(my favorite! makes 4-6 & was adjusted from this recipe)
1/2 cup coconut milk
2 bananas
2.5 tablespoons cocoa powder
1 teaspoon of vanilla

combine ingredients in blender & pour into popsicle molds.  option: add some peanut butter or chocolate chips.


layered lemonade
blood orange juice
mango lemonade
strawberry lemonade
oj
lemonade

add a splash of one type of juice & freeze for a half to a whole hour before adding next juice. continue until you have achieved desired layers. No, I didn't mean for this to look like candy corn. 

i love you berry much
1/4 cup coconut milk
1/4 cup strawberry yogurt
1 banana
handful of frozen or fresh berries 
(i used blueberries, raspberries, blackberries & strawberries)
1 tablespoon honey
splash of oj

combine ingredients in blender & pour into popsicle molds. variation: use different fruit and yogurt flavors. 


mocha-coconut 
(that's fun to say)
1/2 cup mocha cappuccino protein drink (i used bolthouse farms from sunflower market)
1/2 cup coconut milk
1 teaspoon coconut torani syrup
1 banana

combine ingredients in blender & pour into popsicle molds. option: leave 1/4 inch at the "base" and add sweetened coconut flakes after an hour of freezing. 


there's always money in the ((coco))-banana stand
1/2 cup coconut milk
1-2 bananas, depending on how much you like bananas
a sprinkle of berry (blue) jello mix
splash of coconut rum (yes ma'am.)
1 teaspoon torani coconut syrup

combine ingredients in blender & pour into molds. you can certainly exclude jello mix. i just wanted some color! 


pineapple protein 
(not my favorite because of the whey powder in the smoothie, but it's healthy!)
1/2 cup protein zone naked juice
1 pineapple ring
1/4 cup coconut milk
1 teaspoon torani coconut syrup

combine ingredients in blender & pour into popsicle molds. 
option: put a pineapple ring in for decoration or leave 1/2 an inch and after an hour of freezing add chopped pineapple! 

cherry limeade
pour premade cherry limeade into mold. minute maid & hubert's both make great ones! option: slice two pieces of lime and add to each side for some pizazz. 


Enjoy, friends. Have a popsicle party! 




love.

The popsicle molds I used are from World Market
Popsicle Sticks from Joann using this DIY: Painted Popsicle Stick DIY
For the two smaller popsicles, I used "condiment cups" that can also serve as cupcake liners.
