Feeling hot? Then how about cooling down with a frozen fruit popsicle fresh from the freezer?
Homemade popsicles are the ingenious summer treat, great for quenching thirst, upping your fruit intake and generally taking the heat out of the day.
What's more, they are incredibly easy to make and need be nothing more than your favourite fruit blitzed with water or fruit juice, set in the freezer and enjoyed whenever it's time for a sweet treat on a blazing summer's afternoon.
Popsicles are incredibly easy to make at home, can be tailor made to your favourite flavours and made from 100 percent fruit.
It's just a case of letting your imagination and taste buds run wild, harnessing combinations and your favourite flavours and colours.
Go for summer fruits and citrus like strawberry and lime, watermelon and raspberry, orange and strawberry or try going tropical with more exotic fruit combinations like coconut and pineapple, banana and blackberry, coconut and mango or floral with combinations like blackberry and rose.
How to make your own Fruit popsicles
The only equipment you'll need to get started is a blender, a mould and some sticks to hold your popsicles. Blend, freeze, eat repeat. It's as simple as that.
