Fruit Juice Popsicles

While it might not be exactly hot here in California yet (sometimes we have to wait until September or even as late in the year as November or December to get truly hot days), I’m 100% on board with enjoying summery treats like popsicles.

I bought a few new sets of popsicles molds recently, and so expect so see more frozen healthy treats around here. I looked specifically for BPA-free popsicle molds. They made this recipe so easy and fun.

Recipe Highlights

Unlike homemade ice creams that often need to be churned before freezing, popsicles really just need to be poured into the molds and frozen for about an hour. If you’re wondering if you really need a mold for popsicles, you don’t! You could always go with the “Dixie-cup and wooden stick technique” if you don’t have a mold like I used.

And, this popsicle recipe couldn’t be easier because I used no sugar added bottled pomegranate juice and a squeeze of lime juice. Two ingredients: that’s it!!!

The pomegranate seeds (also called arils) are just for decoration in my photos, but they could be added to the juice to add texture to the popsicles. I prefer just the juice for this recipe, otherwise I have flashbacks to those jello cups from my childhood that had fruit suspended in the middle. (Who else hated that texture)?

You’ll need about 1 1/2 to 2 cups of pomegranate juice for this recipe, depending on how big your molds are. Also, I wanted to share this awesome research article that discusses how pomegranate juice could be beneficial for chronic inflammatory diseases.
