Our Table: Homemade Popsicles

Nothing says summer like an ice cold popsicle.  Fudgesicles, Creamsicles, Rocket Pops, Push Pops…I love them all.

On a recent beach vacation with my family, we decided to try our hand at making our own pops.  We started with these Gummy Bear and Sprite ones.  They were a huge hit with the kids!  Even though they weren’t exactly my fave, I was inspired to come home and try some different popsicle recipes.

The 4th of July is this week, and these pops are the perfect way to show your patriotism.  These are a super healthy alternative to the Rocket Pops of our childhood.

These are my favorite of the bunch.  All three were delicious, but it’s really hard to beat anything that contains Oreos.  These are a pudding style pop versus a fruity pop like the other two.

I can’t think of a more refreshing way to enjoy a cocktail than in a popsicle form. I saw these Peach and Bourbon Pops on one of my favorite sites, Ashley Brooke Designs, and I immediately added the ingredients to my grocery list.  I followed her recipe exactly, and they were so. good.  They would be great to serve at a summer cookout.

In full disclosure , mine didn’t turn out nearly as pretty as ABD’s.  I think maybe the alcohol was making it not freeze very well?  Even though they weren’t pretty (at all) we still thought they were delicious!  And in case you couldn’t tell, that is not an original photo…I wish!

I highly recommend you try your own pops at home.  I plan to whip up these strawberry banana ones, these fudgesicles, and definitely margarita ice pops!
