Kids-eating-limeade-popsicles

Who doesn’t love limeade or lemonade in the middle of a hot, sunny day?

The other week, I picked up a bag of discounted limes from the produce market, and had sort of forgotten about them. In the midst of “one of those mornings”, I decided that the kids and I just need to just stop doing our cleaning chores, have a little fun and enjoy hanging out together. I remembered the bag of limes sitting in my fridge drawer and was suddenly inspired to create a recipe for Limeade Popsicles, instead of our standard yogurt/fruit smoothie ones!

Limeade Popsicles
 
Recipe type: Desserts and Sweets
Ingredients
  • ¼ cup fresh lime juice
  • ⅛ cup raw honey (or to taste, depending how sweet you like it)
  • Enough filtered water to make 1 quart or 1 litre
Instructions
  1. Blend ingredients together.
  2. Pour into popsicle tray and pop the tray into the freezer. Wait impatiently for several hours. Dum, da, dum, dum...

 

This would have made 2 or 3 trays of popsicles, but I only have 1 tray. So… we made a tray of popsicles and Mommy enjoyed iced limeade while she blogged! :) It you only have 1 tray like me, definitely cut these amounts in half or simply do as I did and drink the yummy excess.

(Or make a fun craft while you wait- we decided to make these cute and simple binoculars! The idea came from Camp WannaLaffaLotta at Life as Mom, which is a great source for fun things to do with your kids this summer!)

Enjoy! And drip sticky juice all over the patio (and kitchen floor) and do a whole lot of delightful slurping! :)

What types of popsicles do you enjoy making?
