Look! I made you dinner!
You could have it as a snack if you wanted to, but the best summer days are the ones where ice cream, popsicles, and other cold treats are perfectly acceptable as meals. You know the days I mean, right? It’s like the summer version of having breakfast for dinner.
These are ridiculously easy to make, and you know that if I’m saying that, kindergarten classes everywhere could handle it.
The strawberry lemonade popsicles have two ingredients. Two! There are more letters in that word than there are ingredients! Simply cut the stems off of a few strawberries, throw them in your blender or food processor with a few squirts of lemon juice, and you’re almost done!
I chopped up a few extra pieces to throw in and make my popsicles chunky, but you’re free to skip this step if that weirds you out a little. You could also add a little bit of honey or sugar if you wanted to, but these are most likely sweet enough on their own depending on the taste of your strawberries.
For a really sweet snack, I suggest the fudgesicles.
I poured a cup of milk (I used coconut) into a mason jar, added a packet of hot chocolate, a scoop of PB2, some chia seeds, and a reasonable (to no one) amount of chocolate chips. Shake it all up and pour it into your popsicle mold.
Don’t be alarmed if you see some chunks – the chia seeds will swell a little and help make these more of a fudgesicle consistency instead of just some frozen milk.
Stick them in your freezer for a few hours and then stick them in your mouth!
You can make just one, or you can make them both! And if you don’t approve of popsicle dinners, try one for dessert. Totally laid back. Just like summer. 🙂
