Calgary’s Popsicles Recipe, Four Ways

The great thing about posicles (aka ice lollies) is that you can pretty much use any combination of fruit to create delicious treats that will instantly make you happy and leave you thinking of long summer days. The other great thing is that basically any smoothie you make can be poured into your moulds, so if you ever have any leftover you can freeze it into popsicles to save it for later.

These recipes are all just a guide as there are so many delicious choices available. Play around with whatever fruits and vegetables look gorgeous at your market. You can buy a variety of fun moulds so how many you can make depends on their size and shape- the quantities below all make six in my moulds.
