Summer is just around the corner and popsicles are the quintessential, edible accessory to welcome the arrival of longer, hotter days. But did you know that popsicles were created accidentally? In 1905, 11 year-old Frank Epperson left a cup filled with powdered soda, water, and stirring stick on his San Francisco porch. That night, low temperatures caused the mixture to freeze and voila, popsicles were invented.
More than two billion popsicles are sold annually – some good for you, some not. Today we have a delicious and nutritious alternative to combat the heat and keep your summer bod’ trim. So Freeze! Drop that Fudgsicle. Back away from that Otter Pop. Here’s how to make yummy and healthy popsicles featuring our Sub-Zero Superfoods™ smoothies.
STRAWBERRY BANANA POPSICLE RECIPE
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Freeze Time: 5 hours – preferably overnight
Yields: 5 popsicles
- 1 Sub-Zero Superfoods™ smoothie (We used Strawberry Banana Probiotics!)
- 1 cup Nut Milk (We used unsweetened Almond Milk)
1. Pour 1 cup of almond milk into Sub-Zero cup.
2. Add cup contents to blender.
3. Blend until smooth.
4. Pour the mixture into 5 popsicle molds, dividing evenly.
5. Freeze until firm, at least five hours but preferably overnight.
TIP: To release popsicles from mold, hold mold under warm running water for 15 seconds. Be sure to let the warm water hit the top and bottom of the mold, not just the middle. The goal is to loosen the ends, not melt the middle of the pop. If you melt the middle, your popsicle may break.
NOTES: To make other recipes, repeat directions using your favorite Sub-Zero Smoothie. For our second recipe, we made blueberry popsicles using the Blueberry Protein Sub-Zero.
