We absolutely love these fresh and creamy lemon ice pops! They are creamy and sweet but super refreshing at the same time. These are great to make in batches so you always have a delicious treat to cool down available to you. Trust us, they will be gone in less than a day!
Summer is a great time to bring out the ice pops. I don't know about you, but when I see all those colorful treats in the grocery store refrigerated cases, it makes me want to run outside and make them myself!
This summer we decided to try some new flavors and these creamy lemon ice pops were a hit. The fresh juice keeps them extra sweet and they are super refreshing on a hot summer day.
Plus, they are super easy to make! All you need is your lemon juice, some maple syrup, and some creamy coconut milk. Just freeze them in ice pop molds overnight and ta-da! Tasty homemade treats.
We hope you enjoy this simple recipe as much as we do!
The Easiest Ice Popsicles
Similar to a lemonade popsicle, this recipe couldn’t be easier. It has only three ingredients and three steps. You’ll need 1 ½ cup of plant-based milk (you can use whichever you prefer), ½ cup of sugar, and the zest and juice of one lemon.
Mix all the ingredients, pour into your popsicle molds, and freeze until solid. Easy peasy!
Once you prepare these creamy lemon popsicles once, you’ll probably know the lemon popsicle recipe by heart. You'll be able to make them without even thinking about the measurements next time the kids ask for them.
Healthy Fruit Popsicle Variations
With simple and easy recipes like these, you can play around with many different healthy popsicle variations as long as you stick to the basics.
In this case, we would need 1 ½ cups of plant-based milk, the sugar and then we could substitute the lemon juice and zest and maybe add one or two more ingredients.
Let’s come up with some ideas, shall we?
Mango juice + coconut milk
Plant-based yogurt + vanilla
Pineapple juice + coconut milk
Peach Juice + Plant-based yogurt
The combinations are endless and you can simply choose the fruit or veggie juice that your family likes best.
You can get creative and experiment with many different combinations and add ons. If you’re up for it, you can add some fruit pieces to the mix, like berries or mango pieces.
These popsicles are a perfect treat to prepare together with the kids. Get the kids in the kitchen and show them how to make lemon ice pops. They'll love helping and be excited to give them a try!
