Fresh fruit and lemonade on a hot summer day is probably the best combination since PB&J in the schoolyard. It’s just as heavenly as it gets, people. And it wouldn’t be me if I didn’t point out how pretty they are. Pretty food makes me happy – as long as it tastes good, too. Thankfully, these are the real deal.
Fresh Fruit Lemonade Pops [Vegan]
- 1 cup water
- 1 cup raw sugar
- 1 cup fresh lemon juice
- 1 pint strawberries
- 1 mango
- small watermelon
- Boil water on stove – add sugar and stir until completely dissolved. Allow to cool a bit before adding the fresh lemon juice – stir and taste test until you are satisfied.
- This one is simple. Slice berries. Add to popsicle mold. Add lemonade. Freeze and be done with it.
- This one is an extra step – aka, juicing watermelon. You can use a juicer or simply blend in your Magic Bullet or similar. Add your fresh, sliced fruit, and fill it up halfway with lemonade and halfway with watermelon juice. Yummmmm.
- Another extra step, but super simple. Blend 1 mango with about 1/4 cup fresh lemonade. Again, add your strawberries then fill popsicle mold to the brim. This one is sooo good – it has great texture.
You may want to start with less sugar if you are not crazy about sweetness – do what is right for you!
