The hottest part of summer has yet to come. Battle the August heat with fun and creativity. An easy DIY project the whole family can enjoy. Especially one that you can eat!
Homemade popsicles are a staple for summer fun. I do it with my family and you probably made some with yours in the past as well. As simple as they are to do, I struggled for some time to make any that didn’t turn out a bit boring. Maybe you had that problem too. Or Perhaps you are looking for variety from past summer delights as I always do. Whatever experience (or lack thereof) you may have, making popsicles is not an activity you want to miss out during the hot season.
Lucky for you, I found recipes that are bursting with flavor and rich sweetness that leaves your mouth watering. No more bland popsicle attempts. No need to spend money on overpriced ice cream. This summer you will have the best tasting and looking popsicle desserts.
There are two recipes for this DIY project. The Healthy version…and the not so healthy one. No shame if you choose the latter, I did. Sometimes you got to treat yourself. Whichever you decide, both will be fun and delicious options for your family and friends.
Without further delay, your next summer DIY project.
Here are the following ingredients needed for the healthy recipe:
- Any juice of your preference (In the video it recommends honeycrisp apple juice, pomegranate juice, and pure coconut water.)
- Any fruit of your preference (In the video it recommends blackberries, raspberries, strawberries, and grapes.)
- Popsicle molds
For the more sweet tooth folks, follow this recipe:
- Any lemon-flavored drinks (Think Sprite or Minute Maid.)
- Any kind of gummy candies (In the video it recommends Haribo’s Gold Bears, Trolli’s crawlers, and Airheads’ Xtremes.)
Both recipes require to be refrigerated for at least 24 hours.

Hope you have fun with this DIY summer popsicle project with either recipe you chose. Make it with your family, share with your friends. Before you know it, you will be the talk of the neighborhood. They are great for parties, family picnic at the park, a treat after a good workout, quality time with the kids, etc.
