Popsicles!

Hey, everyone. Your favorite nanny here!

The kids’ summer just started and I’ve been desperate to find activities for them to do other than playing on the iPad and watching movies. So, homemade popsicles it is!

We opted for the raspberry limeade flavor to deliciously refresh us on these long, hot days.

The ingredients are simple enough:

  • 1 can Raspberry Lemonade concentrate
  • 1 lime
  • ½ cup raspberries
  • 2 cups of water

In a medium size bowl, juice your lime and scrape in some of the pulp. Then add the raspberries. I gave texture to the popsicles by mildly mashing the raspberries so they were soft but still chunky.

Add your can of Raspberry Lemonade concentrate and the 2 cups of water into the mixture and stir.

Pour the mixture into your popsicle molds and freeze 4-6 hours; or overnight for safe measure.

Wrestle your delicious popsicles out of their molds and enjoy!

This will be my third summer spent with these kids and I’m so excited to share our adventures with you! I know it’ll be a good one, so stay tuned.
