Tips

  • I use a silicone popsicle mold here, as it it so much easier than using the plastic ones! I used to have plastic ones and I would always struggle to get the popsicles out unscathed. I highly recommend getting one of these silicone popsicle mold if you like to make popsicles. The only thing to be careful of is to make sure that nothing is touching it while they set up in the freezer, as you can cause the popsicles to freeze in an odd shape if the silicone has been indented!
  • The silicone popsicle mold also comes with little plastic sleeves to put your finished popsicles in, which I thought was kinda cool. But, if you already had a mold you can make your own sleeves with plastic wrap or just put them in a ziploc bag. Just be careful when freezing the popsicles as if you put them all together in something, they will all freezer together! So, if you remove them from the molds be sure to wrap them individually so you can easily get one out of the freezer when you want.
  • I use fresh lemons in this recipe, which is key! Make sure your lemons are ripe and juicy.
  • I use organic cane sugar in this recipe, this is the same as granulated white sugar, but it's just organic. I highly recommend switching to organic cane sugar, as it's so much better for you and it tastes better too.
