With Spring officially here and the temperature warming up,
I'm guessing many of us will be eating popsicles quite often.
Personally, I like to make them myself to control the ingredients.
And one of my favorite kinds is to use simple lemonade!
You can use whatever lemonade you'd like,
be it homemade or store bought - both kinds will work.
I tend to make my own using this recipe
then simply use molds to make my popsicles!
Cut your lemons in half and start juicing...
Squeeze the juice out of ALL your lemons.
I did a total of a dozen.
Measure out the amount of lemon juice you need.
And toss all the discarded lemons.
Of if you have a compost throw them in there!
Measure out your sugar and make your simple syrup.
Get your lemon juice, simple syrup and water ready to combine.
Then mix it all up in a big pitcher.
Fill your popsicle molds almost all the way full.
If you're using the tops that came with them, add them now.
If you're using popsicle sticks, freeze for about an hour
and then insert the sticks so they stay upright.
Freeze overnight to make sure they're completely solid.
Package them up and give to family and friends.
And of course enjoy one yourself!
