It is H-O-T in Arizona- simple, refreshing treats are needed!
Why are they so mini? I have a toddler- the big popsicles are just a bit too much for her, but the ice cubed size popsicles are perfect! An added bonus? She is teething and LOVES them!
Now, if you would like to make them a bit more adult you can add a splash of vodka or rum for a BBQ treat (and if you have a teething toddler, the addition is a good one- for you, not them, of course 😉
Blackberry Orange Mint Popsicles- Makes about 12 ice cube popsicles
1.5 cups freshly squeezed orange juice (approximately 4 oranges)
1/2 cup of blackberries
1/2 cup of water
Small handful of chopped mint leaves
Ice Cube Tray
Popsicle sticks (I got the mini ones at Michaels)
Crush the blackberries (a mortar & pestle or a fork will do)
Mix ingredients together, pour into ice cube tray.
Lay tin foil on top of ice cube tray and make small slits with a knife to insert the popsicle sticks.
Freeze and Enjoy!
You can add sugar or agave nectar if you like, but trust me- the sweetness is there! These popsicles are so easy to make- and without the dyes, additives and sugars of the store bought ones.
I have many different varieties- all using fruit for sweetness. I think I am going to make a apple-spinach-blueberry one and Kalia will never know the difference!
You probably wouldn’t notice but I am telling you- I have small white paint marks on my thumb and finger and you can see a bandaid from a DIY injury. My hands were not made for foodie pics!
If you enjoy, I would love your comments, sharing and pins, thank you!!
