A Sweet Way to Cool Down
Popsicle are a sweet way to cool down in the summer heat. Store bought Popsicles have tons of unwanted additives and the healthy organic versions come with a big price tag. It's amazing how simple and easy it is to make a Popsicle. Here are my favorites to tackle the Georgia heat.
Four cups of sweet watermelon, and one large lime. Peel the lime and put it in the blender. Seed the watermelon, and put it in the blender. Turn the blender on and watch them turn into a bright pink juice. Pour the juice into the Freezer Pop Maker, put the cover on, put the sticks in, freeze overnight.
Fresh Peach Popsicle
1¼ pounds ripe peaches, (3-4 medium), halved and pitted
Juice of 1 lemon
¼ cup freshly squeezed orange juice
⅛ cup sugar, or to taste
¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
Coarsely chop peaches in a food processor. 1 cup of the chunky peaches to a medium bowl.
Add lemon juice, orange juice and sugar to taste (depending on the sweetness of the peaches) to the food processor.
Puree until smooth.
Add to the bowl with the chunky peaches and stir in vanilla.
Divide the mixture in about twelve freezer-pop molds (or small paper cups).
Freeze until beginning to set, about 1 hour.
Insert frozen-treat sticks and freeze until completely firm, about 1 hour more.
