Have you noticed a trend in our blog posts lately? Yes, we are gearing up for summer with the frozen treats. Today’s frozen goody is a homemade lemon-lime popsicle. We created them with a standard popsicle mold, but the problem always arises that your popsicle mold makes four popsicles, and there are five kiddos in the back yard.
How to make a stock pile of homemade popsicles
What to do? We use these preciously retro rock candy sticks instead of the plastic sticks that come with the popsicle mold. We pushed the stick through the lemon and lime slices first and then inserted them into the mold. Fill each cavity of the popsicle mold with lemonade or limeade, and secure the sticks in an upright position using foil.
These homemade lemon-lime popsicles are equally delicious without the fruit slices. We use the fruit to make them pretty, but it is certainly not required. If you omit the fruit slices, just fill the cavities of the mold with lemonade, and simply cover the entire mold with foil. Push two rock candy sticks through the foil into each cavity, and freeze.
When the pops are frozen, remove them and immediately return your homemade popsicles to the freezer. Now, your mold is empty, and ready to refill. Repeat the steps until you have enough to feed the army of kids in your yard this summer!
