Hey WTYFGH readers! I’m Chelsea and I blog over at Making Home Base where I share home decor projects, crafts, and a little bit about our military life. I’m so excited to be here sharing a yummy summer treat!
Now that it’s summer we are enjoying our fair share of delicious cool treats. A few weeks ago I snagged a little popsicle mold from Ikea. I thought it would be fun to make our own flavors! For my first attempt I decided to take my favorite summer refreshment and make a popsicle out of it: Lemon Shake Ups!
Lemon Shake Ups are really just a one glass lemonade. Squeeze the juice of one lemon, add a bunch of sugar (we like them sweet) and dilute with water. Then you shake it all up in a jar! Typically, we would just add ice, and a cute little paper straw but for the yummy popsicle version I just poured the mixture into the popsicle molds and allowed it to freeze overnight.
Then all that’s left to do is enjoy! So yummy and SO refreshing for these hot summer days!
- Juice of one lemon
- 1/4 c. sugar
- 1 quart of water
- Squeeze juice of one lemon into a quart sized mason jar. I also like to squeeze a bit of the pulp. Add 1/4 cup of sugar and about 1 quart of water (just enough to fill the jar). Place the lid on the jar and shake it up until it’s mixed really well. Poor into popsicle molds and allow to freeze overnight.
Thanks so much for having me over for a visit today, Mer! I hope you are enjoying these first few months as a family of four! Hugs!
