We are hot on the heels of summer and I couldn’t be happier! I’ve been wanting to delve in to the world of popsicle making for quite some time and I’m even more excited after seeing just how simple they are to make yourself. Today is a fun day around here at Tried and Tasty. Popsicles.
I don’t buy them often, mostly due to the artificial colors, unpronounceable ingredient list, and cost. When I realized that all you need is just an Ice Pop Maker and your favorite fruits I was sold. I didn’t even need any additional sugars (the fruits are sugary enough). If I were to add more sweetener, my choice would be a bit of honey! I used organic strawberries (are you familiar with the Dirty Dozen & Clean Fifteen? You MUST check out my Clean 15 vs. Filthy 15: When Organic Matters post!) and a lemon. That’s it. Easy peasy right?
