Popsicle Recipes

Down here in Florida, it’s getting pretty hot out, so it’s time for some cold sweet treats! To make popsicles, you’ll need a silicone mold. This is the one I use.  You’ll also need a blender. If you are in the market for a new blender, I recommend Vitamix. I have the Vitamix 5200 and I love it. It is expensive, but I doubt I’ll ever have to buy another blender!

Now for my popsicle recipes…Here are some flavor combinations I have enjoyed. If you discover some of your own, please share them in the comments! The instructions are the same for each recipe: put everything in your blender and blend until smooth. Pour into your mold and freeze for several hours.

Note the tips on using dates and cashew nuts in your blender. Both will blend up much faster if you pre-soak them for at least 20 minutes in hot water. Use this same trick when using cashews or dates in smoothies or salad dressing recipes.
