RecipeLooking for a cool fun summer snack? These lemonade popsicles are just the thing! Lemonade mixed with coconut milk and your favorite fresh fruit will keep you refreshed all summer long. A perfect treat for the kids too!

Make these popsicles your own! This recipe has three simple ingredients. I’ll walk you through how to choose them so you can make your favorite combination!

Creamy Lemonade Popsicles

Servings: 8

Time: 15 mins to prep, freeze overnight

Difficulty: easy

LEMONADE

Homemade Lemonade is the preferred lemonade to use for these popsicles. You can use my super easy and delicious lemonade recipe provided below. It makes an entire pitcher, but if you’re just using it for popsicles then divide the recipe into fourths.

I suggest using Meyer lemons for your homemade lemonade. They have a softer sweeter taste however regular lemons work just as well.

Store bought will work. I tested this recipe with store bought lemonade. Out of all of my popsicle versions, it created the most diluted lemon flavor.

COCONUT MILK 

When I was testing this recipe I noticed that the type of coconut milk is important. For the creamy white (as seen in this picture above), you need to use full fat unsweetened coconut milk. You can buy this in a can. I like the 1/2 lemonade and 1/2 coconut milk look, but you can add more coconut milk if you want your entire popsicle to be white and creamy.

You can use a less-fat coconut milk but you will not see the thick white creamy section of the popsicle. It will separate from the lemonade more so that most of your popsicle will look like a slushie rather than a creamsicle. The only thing that changes is the texture but the flavor is the same.

FAVORITE FRESH FRUIT

Use your favorite fruit in these popsicles! You can have fun with it by mixing a few different fruits together. Strawberries and blueberries are great matches to lemon. Just make sure you cut up the fruit so that it’s bite size!

INGREDIENTS

1 cup Lemonade (Meyer Lemons preferred) See Simple Lemonade recipe below

1 cup Full Fat Coconut Milk

Fresh Fruit (optional) cut into bite size pieces

DIRECTIONS

In a blender, combine your lemonade and coconut milk together. Blend about 30 – 60 seconds until the mixture is homogeneous.

In your popsicle mold, add in your fruit. Pour your lemonade coconut mixture into the popsicle molds all the way to the top.

Recipes

Make sure to only add in a few pieces of fruit so that your handle/stick can go all the way into the popsicle.

Recipes

Add in your popsicle handles. Freeze overnight.

The Next Step

The Yoga District 200 and 500 hour teacher training certification programs, registered by the Yoga Alliance are unique in their emphasis on diversity of teaching styles studied, personal attention, and trauma sensitive yoga. It's no coincidence that Yoga District is regularly voted the leading studio in the nation's capital, and that most of its classes are taught by graduates of its training program. As a full time yoga school, small group trainings are led up to eight times a year by a dedicated faculty including Jasmine Chehrazi, contributor to the Harvard Karma Yoga Project teacher training, teacher training faculty at George Washington University, Yoga Alliance Standards Committee Advisory Board Member, Yoga Activist Founder, and Yoga Service Council Advisory Board Member. So take your practice and community involvement to the next level by joining a training. There's a reason why our graduates call the training "transformative."
