DIY: Popsicles

An Easy-To-Eat Summer Treat By Adam Lansdell We all want something cold to enjoy on a hot summer’s day, which is why frozen pops are typically first to mind when seeking out a simple solution. However, store-bought Popsicles really aren’t very good for you nutritiously and use packing materials that can be harmful to the environment if not disposed of properly. So why not nip those issues in the bud by making your own healthy frozen pops?   What you’ll need:
  • Fruit (your choice)
  • Juice (a flavor complementary to the selected fruit)
  • Choice of yogurt – we recommend whole Greek yogurt as it holds shape best
  • Milk
  • Popsicle sticks
  • Small paper or plastic cups
  • Tin foil
How to: Simply puree your fruit and mix with all other ingredients inside of a pitcher or bowl. Pour mixture into small cups. Place a Popsicle stick in the middle of each cup. Place tin foil over each cup, while making a small hole to accommodate the stick. Place assembled cups in freezer and for roughly three hours. Remove from freezer, discard paper cups and foil. Enjoy!
