Homemade Popsicles

  • Strawberries
  • Mango

Preparation of homemade popsicles

  • Slice the strawberries in the small bits and do the same with the mangoes (watch video illustration)
  • Blend both fruits separately until smooth and pour them into separate bowls.
  • Lay out your popsicle maker or ice-lolly maker like some call it
  • Pour in either fruit about halfway through each popsicle maker and fill the remaining half with the other fruit
  • Seal tightly with the cover that later works as a handle and place them in the freezer for up to five hours for a good outcome
  • To be able to bite into your homemade popsicle, you can get a bowl of water and place the frozen popsicle in it for up to one minute. A slight pull should bring out the popsicle easily.

There you have it, homemade popsicles in easy steps. Go ahead and make yours :)
