Homemade Lemon Lime Freeze Pops
One of my favorite things to do is experiment with frozen treats. Popsicles make a delicious cool-down snack that’s both fun to eat and to share with family and friends. In fact, they’re perfect for playdates on a hot summer day!
Here’s a delicious layer of flavor that includes lemons, limes and a creamy center. They are delicious, sweet, cool and refreshing!
- 1/4 cup lemon juice, fresh squeezed
- 2 cups water
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Vanilla low fat yogurt
- 6 – 5 oz. plastic coated paper cups
- 6 wooden craft sticks
Combine the fresh squeezed lemon juice, water, honey and vanilla extract in a blender.
Bend until all of the ingredients are mixed well.
Fill the six cups a third full and freeze them for at least an hour on a flat surface in the freezer.
Fill the cups a third of the way with the vanilla yogurt. Add the craft sticks to the center of each pop and freeze for at least another hour.
Top off the pops with the remaining lemon liquid and continue to freeze for several more hours and/or overnight.
Removing the Cup: When you are ready to serve the frozen pops, simply clip the edge of the plastic coated paper cup with a clean pair of kitchen scissors and peel it away before eating.
How Many? This recipe makes approximately six frozen pops using the 5 oz. plastic coated cups.
Lime Pops: Substitute 1/4 cup of lemon juice with a 1/8 cup of fresh squeezed lime juice. Want more green? Simply add a few leaves of fresh baby leaf spinach to the blender. It will add a natural green color with out any taste.
Lemon and Lime Squeezing: You can use a citrus squeezer to extract the juice. Or, you can simply squeeze the juice from the fruit by cutting it in half and then rotating the lemon as you squeeze until it’s almost pressed in half. Squeeze the lemon juice into a separate bowl before adding it to the recipe and extract any seeds.
Wooden Craft Sticks: Wooden craft sticks can be found in the school supply aisle at your local Price Chopper/Market 32 Supermarket or local craft store.
