Homemade Popsicles Make For a Sweet Treat


Popsicles can be a reminder of fun summer days while hanging out with friends. They serve to keep people cool and as a sweet treat while helping to get all the fruits for the day.

They bring memories of hot summer days in tank tops and shorts with the sun beating down and chasing after the ice cream truck to satisfy the craving of an icy delicacy.

Popsicles burst with flavor, promising a wonderful, messy next few minutes. The juice of the popsicle melting down fingers as you try to finish all off is suddenly the only worry on the mind, a scramble for cleanliness. So jump into the pool to try and wash off the rivers of sweetness running down your hands.

Popsicles are a fundamental part of childhood that can easily be brought into adulthood.

A popsicle is more than just sugar on a stick, it can also be something healthy to enjoy. Perfect for after a long day at work or as a treat for kids, this quick overnight freeze will satisfy all cravings.

This treat is definitely something that can be a party treat or something to share with friends. You can bring back fun, exciting childhood memories of hot summer days, just be quick to eat it or it will end up all over your hands.


  • Apple cider (1 and 1/2 cups)
  • Mixed fruit (frozen any kind you want)
  • Ice (1 cup)
  • Vanilla yogurt (1 package)


  • Blend ingredients together.
  • Pour into popsicle trays.
  • Let the trays freeze overnight.

To make this recipe dairy free: try substituting the vanilla yogurt for fruit sorbet. Trying a dairy-free substitute to this classic makes it even easier to feel light on the feet after devouring the mess that is summer’s favorite recipe. It is also easier to eat more of the popsicles before the sensation of being too-full sets in. You are welcome, sweet treat lover.
