berry blast popsicles

Last summer I purchased a few popsicle molds but never got to using them. This summer, I am using them constantly.  I’ve tried 3 flavors already and I am excited to try new ones.

This weekend, I whipped these berry blast frozen pops and we enjoyed them while lounging pool side. I made these according to my taste and also thought of enjoying them for after dinner.

I didn’t want them to taste like dessert, but more of a healthy frozen treat.

Berry Blast Popsicles

6 cups fresh strawberries

– 1 ripe banana

– 1 acai superfruit pack (I get these from Costco)

– juice of 1/2  lemon

– 1/2 cup almond milk

– honey for sweetener, to taste (since the berries were already sweet, I used 2 tablespoon honey for the whole batch)

Blend all the ingredients until smooth and put in molds. Freeze until completely solid, at least 3 hours.

If you add more milk, the frozen pops will taste more icy than creamy. For next time, I want to omit the milk and add another banana, to get rid of the icy texture completely.
