2 Recipes: Home Made Popsicles & Popsicle Mold Link

Popsicles are my favorite cool down treat during the summer. I buy sugar free Popsicles and eat several a day during these hot Texas heat waves.
I thought it would be fun to bring to you Popsicle recipes you can make at home.
Orange and Cream Pops
  • Grated peel of 1 orange
  • 1 quart vanilla ice cream, softened
  • 1 pint orange sherbet, softened
  • 10 craft sticks
  1. Line a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan with plastic wrap.
  2. In a medium bowl, stir the grated orange peel into the softened vanilla ice cream.
  3. Spread half the vanilla ice cream mixture over the bottom of the loaf pan. Spread the orange sherbet over it and top with the remaining vanilla ice cream mixture.
  4. Place the craft sticks into the ice cream about two inches apart in two rows. Cover, and freeze until firm.
  5. Cut into 10 pops and serve. Cover any leftovers, and keep frozen.
    Watermelon Popsicles      
    • 1/2 watermelon, seeded and cut into chunks
    • Chunks of fresh fruit, such as grapes, strawberries, or kiwi fruit
    1. Puree watermelon and pour into Popsicle molds. Drop in chunks of fresh fruit, insert caps, and place in freezer. Serve when frozen.

    Love both recipes for the creamsickle, and the popsickle. Both are different, and so addictive. Love the watermelon one, with the fruit filling, just as much as the yummy creamy one with the vanilla ice cream, and sherbet addition!
    Now, I just have to order a popsickle maker, since I broke my daughter's plastic container, when I opened the freezer, it just popped make things worst, they are not even here. (I'm house and dog watching for them)
