At our house, we currently have a very prominent count down on our centrally located dry erase board. It’s been there for several weeks, and I’m just as excited to see it ticking down as the kids are. Yep – we’re all excited to greet the last day of school (and we’re nearing single digits)! With summer just around the bend, we’re looking forward to sleeping in, long sunny evenings in the backyard, and summer treats, like these homemade ice pop recipes.
15 Cool and Refreshing Homemade Ice Pop Recipes
I thought that these homemade ice pop recipes were perfect for summer! All of them include at least a little fruit, and some of them include a lot of fresh fruit. What an amazing option for cooling down during the summer.
Imagine how much fun it would be to make some homemade ice pops with your kids! I especially love the idea of incorporating it into another activity, like going to the Farmer’s Market or a U-Pick Farm. I still love remembering going to the U-Pick strawberry farm when I was a kid. (My kids have been a little less enamored with it, but that’s probably because I put them to work.)
My kids do, however, like when we make homemade strawberry jam afterward, which makes me think they would be pretty happy with homemade strawberry popsicles too.
While you could use something like popsicle molds, there are even options just use disposable cups. How fun is that?
Seriously though – make less waste and add to the fun and pop for the popsicle molds, which are not only cool, but they’re pretty inexpensive.
After you whip up all kinds of homemade ice pops, here are some other awesome recipes to try out with your Farmer’s Market goodies:
