Sparkling Lavender Lemonade Popsicles

Last week I posted about the Lemonade Stand Party that a group of us got together and organized and I wanted to follow up this week with the lemonade popsicles I made. These popsicles are super simple to make and you can either make them with homemade lemonade or use a mix like I did (I used a Lemon Lavender cordial from The Handpicked Home). For a pretty finishing touch I added a fresh sprig of lavender from my garden and used sparkling water instead of regular to make them bubbly.  We’ve still got a few weeks left of Summer and these are a perfect sweet treat to cool down with, or serve them up as a refreshing addition to a dessert bar at your next party.

Fresh sprigs of lavender

Optional: slices of fresh lemon 


  1. Mix up your lemonade to your desired sweetness, using sparkling water instead of regular
  2. Pour into popsicle molds, leaving a little extra room at the top so you can add lavender sprigs and/ or lemon slices, plus the popsicle sticks
  3. Freeze overnight, pop out, serve, and enjoy!

That’s it, told you these were easy to make! 😉

Tip: serve in a container with ice to keep them from melting as fast

Citrus Turmeric Popsicles

How’s everyone handling the heat? I thought now would be a good time to put up a recipe that’s delicious anytime, but especially good when you’re looking for a refreshing treat. I used this recipe as the base with a few adjustments, and was really happy with how they turned out. Adding turmeric to these citrus popsicles gives them a nutritious boost and adds a unique flavour, and as long as you don’t add too much, you’ll only just be able to taste it as a nice compliment to the sweetness of the orange. Add a little mint or basil if you want to experiment with flavour combos a little more. 


2 ripe bananas

2 – 2 1/2 cups orange juice

1 tbsp ground turmeric

1 tsp vanilla extract (optional)


1. Pop all of the ingredients except the turmeric in a blender and puree until smooth. Add another 1/2 cup orange juice if necessary to help the mixture blend well. 

2. Add turmeric a little bit at a time and taste as you go. Add as little or much as desired until you reach the flavour balance you like.

3. Pour the mix into popsicle molds and freeze until ready. That’s it!

Yummy Mummy Monday: Popsicles!

Wow. Summer is in full swing. And it’s hot! 
If you live in the Lower Mainland or surrounding areas, you know what the temperatures have been like lately. And while we definitely appreciate a change from the grey & rain we get for most of the rest of the year, we appreciate a cool treat to help us cool down. What could be better than a classic popsicle? Why not try your hand at making your own healthy versions? Take advantage of all the delicious berries & fruit in season and whip up some healthy sweet treats. Whether you make them for your kids or for the kid in you, these delicious pops are a Summer must- have. 
Each recipe makes 6 popsicles. 
Tip: If using popsicle sticks, freeze for approx 30 minutes before inserting sticks. Allow 3- 4 hours for popsicles to freeze completely.  
Sparkling Fruit Popsicles
A fun way to get your kids to eat fruit!
1/2 cup fresh blueberries
1 kiwi, sliced
1/2 cup fresh pineapple, chopped
1/2 cup fresh strawberries, quartered
Sparkling water or coconut water (for a grown- up version, try with champagne or sparkling wine!) 😉
To Make
Fill popsicle moulds 1/4 full with sparkling/ coconut water, followed with alternating fruit pieces
Fill the rest of the mould with sparkling/ coconut water & tap lightly to remove bubbles
Freeze & enjoy! (the carbonation of the sparkling water is refreshing on a hot day!)
(Tip: Add the fruits by colour to make a rainbow popsicle)
Blackberry Coconut Popsicles
A delicious dairy- free option!
Coconut milk
2 cups blackberries
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp honey
Juice of one lime (optional- but adds a refreshing kick!)
To Make
Wash & strain blackberries, then puree them in a blender. Pour through a strainer to remove seeds.
In another bowl combine coconut milk, vanilla extract, & honey (and lime juice if using)
Pour alternating layers of the two mixtures into the moulds
Freeze & enjoy!
(Tip: If in a hurry, you can blend everything together in one bowl & skip the layers)

Berry Yogurt Popsicles
Enjoy seasonal berries in abundance!
1 1/2 cups yogurt 
1/2 cup milk (sub with coconut milk for a tropical twist)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 fresh berries (strawberries, blueberries, & blackberries are great local options)
To Make
Mix yogurt, milk, & vanilla in a blender
Mix in berries and pour into moulds 
(Like with the blackberry coconut popsicles, you can blend the berries with the yogurt mix if you prefer everything blended)
What’s your favourite way to cool down in the Summer? Have a favourite popsicle recipe? We’d love to know about it!
