Make Your Own Summer Popsicles

Summer without popsicles? No Way! What if, to find some relief from the heat, we rely on some fresh fruit instead of on artificial syrups? Here is a very easy (and super tasty!) recipe to prepare some homemade summer popsicles from Miriam Lepore.

For a watermelon popsicle, we will need:

Let’s first create a syrup by melting the sugar in the water and boiling it. Once boiled, turn off the fire and leave it to cool. Cut the watermelon, remove the seeds and blend it with the mixer. Now, mingle the result with the cold syrup. Pour the solution in the plastic glasses and put them in the freezer for two hours. Remove them from the freezer, insert the wooden sticks and leave them cool for other 4 hours. Our popsicles are now ready: you just need to break the plastic glasses and enjoy their freshness!

For a lemon popsicle, we will need:

The procedure is very similar to the one illustrated above. Melt the sugar (more in this case, to counterbalance the lemon) in the water and leave the solution to boil. Squeeze the lemons and remove the seeds. Mix this with the syrup, pour it in the plastic glasses and put them in the freezer for two hours. Then, insert the wooden sticks and leave them cool for other 4 hours. Break the glasses and…yummy!
