Recipe: Raspberry Lemonade Pops

My sister made some raspberry lemonade a few weeks ago, and all I could think of was how refreshing and delicious it would taste on a hot day as a popsicle. I simplified the recipe so they only use 4 ingredients, and I'm so happy with the results.

I made my Raspberry Lemonade pops less sweet and more tart than typical lemonade, because that's the way I like my lemonade. you can easy change up how sweet they are by adding more sweetener or less lemon juice. They could be made using some vodka for a more adult pop, but these ones are kid-friendly!



I recommend using the juice of fresh lemons rather than that stuff they sell in bottles. The taste isn't anywhere near the same, and you'll be disappointed with the results. Remember that the flavours of the Raspberry Lemonade pops will intensify with freezing, so imagine everything just a bit brighter when you taste test the juice.

These popsicles have a gorgeous raspberry colour, and their taste is just as refreshing as you would hope for from a cool-me-down treat on a hot day. The perfect summer treat!
