From Honor Fabun: Super simple, icy treats to cool you down. I’m partial to Meyer lemons so that’s what I used to make these lemon ice pops.
From Plant-Based on a Budget: 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!
The Easiest Popsicles
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 them once, you’ll probably know the recipe by heart and do them without even thinking about the measurements next time.
With simple and easy recipes like these, you can play around with many different 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
And so on! 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. Give them a try!
