Have I mentioned that I’m not really eating dairy anymore? I haven’t? It’s not because I don’t enjoy praising chocolate almond milk in my coffee (delish!), it’s totally because if we ever have a brunch date, I want to be able to eat cheese in front of you without you wondering what I’m doing. I’m sensitive that way. Now that I’ve significantly reduced the amount of dairy I eat, two of my favorite summer treats are out: ice cream and frozen yogurt. Dude, I know. No one is more sad than I am. One of the best parts of summer is fro-yo, outside, with friends.
This summer, I’ve decided to embrace the popsicle. Sure, some of them are made with dairy, but I plan on having a batch of sugar-free, all-fruit deliciousness in my freezer at all times. What evokes the essence of summer more than slurping a popsicle and trying not to let the juice run down your arms? Simply seeing a rocket pop makes me feel nine years old again, and this summer, I’m determined to recreate that. I’ve purchased the cheapy molds from Target, but I’d be lying if I said I didn’t have my eye on this fancy business, which freezes pops instantly. Amazing.
I’ve been doing copious amounts of recipe hunting, so I thought I’d share the wealth and try and inspire a few fellow popsicle makers:
- This article refers to itself as the mother of all popsicle round-ups and it really, really is. There’s something for everyone here, including some boozy popsicles and a cereal and milk pop!
- Avocado popsicles? I’m not sure. One of my favorite bloggers, Joanna from A Cup Of Jo, shares her recipes.
- A few recipes from Sarah Von over at Yes and Yes.
- Pina Colada Pops (made creamy with coconut milk! Mmmm!)
- All-natural popsicle recipes.
If you know of any delicious popsicle resources, please, leave them in the comments — I’d love to give them a try!
