Here in Ottawa, the temperature has been crazy! Today it is supposed to get up to 36°C (96°F)!! That is the hottest summer I have seen in a long time. In other parts of the world, especially the lower United States, I have read that the temperature can get up to 47°C (117°F)!! That is just crazy. After seeing the struggles of my friends, and looking for frozen popsicle recipes to help keep my family cool over the summertime, I decided to share my list of homemade popsicle recipes. If you have younger kids, they will have a blast making these recipes for popsicles.
Recently, my kids surprised me with a Zoku. This is one amazing little machine. If you do not know what a Zoku is, it’s a frozen treat maker. You place the gadget in the freezer and let it freeze, usually about four to seven hours depending on your freezer. Then it is ready to make popsicles. After you pour your juice, mix, chocolate, or whatever in the Zoku, you place a stick in there and the popsicle will freeze in seven minutes or less!!! That is a popsicle in less than ten minutes. I was very surprised and happy when my kids gifted this lifesaver to me. That also meant it was time to search all over Pinterest for Zoku popsicle recipes. I added some to the list of simple homemade popsicle recipes below.
