For me, summer breaks have always meant long hours spent at the pool, early morning walks on the beach, and barbeques. Each of those summer activities included some form of delicious iced cold beverage or treat. I seriously love ice cream, popsicles, frozen yogurt, lemonade and iced tea. My dad used to take me to a local frozen yogurt shop after he picked me up school. I would get a small cup of vanilla frozen yogurt with a topping of my choice, which was always gummy bears.
My favorite summer time beverage is pink lemonade. It is sweet, tart and absolutely delicious. When I think of pink lemonade, images of the containers of Country Time Pink Lemonade Mix always come to mind. My mother would bring home those containers every once in a while and we would mix up large jugs of pink lemonade. To this day, I still enjoy having an iced cold glass of strawberry or raspberry lemonade at a Summer BBQ.
This week’s Sunday Supper theme is the Summer BBQ and I couldn’t resist creating a delicious frozen version of one of my favorite summertime drinks. If you haven’t figured it out yet, I am completely in love with raspberries. I thought it would be fun to create a raspberry lemonade popsicle using fresh squeezed lemons and pureed raspberries. Of course, that combination is rather tart so I added some honey to sweeten the pink lemonade. To make these popsicles super creamy, I mixed in Greek yogurt (but you could use regular yogurt).
- 1-1/2 cups raspberries (two 6 oz. packages)
- 1 cup lemon juice, freshly squeezed
- 6 tablespoons honey
- 1-1/2 cups plain Greek yogurt
- Puree ¾ cups of raspberries in a blender. Push the puree through a fine mesh sieve in order to remove the seeds from the pulp and juice.
- Combine raspberry puree, lemon juice, and honey. Whisk together until thoroughly mixed. Add yogurt. Mix until smooth.
- Add remaining raspberries to ice pop molds. Divide raspberry lemonade yogurt mixture evenly among ice pop molds. Place in the freezer for at least 6 hours.
