Homemade Berry Lemonade Pops are low in sugar and are a great summer snack for kids! This recipe is easy to make with watermelon, lemons and blueberries. Sponsored by In The Raw.
Lemonade is one of those things that screams SUMMER! You can drink it year round, of course, but you’ve got to admit that it makes you think about hot summer days. My kids only have a little over three weeks of school left and that means it’s time to start thinking about summer vacation.
The official kickoff to summer is Memorial Day weekend. We aren’t sure what we are going to do this year, but our plans will definitely include food, friends, and fun.
I wanted to make a fun summer treat that would be perfect for Memorial Day and I decided on these Berry Lemonade Pops.
To make these Berry Lemonade Pops, I use Stevia In The Raw® Bakers Bag as the sweetener. Stevia In The Raw is part of the In The Raw® family of sweeteners, which also includes Sugar In The Raw®, Agave In The Raw® and Monk Fruit In The Raw®.
Stevia In The Raw Bakers Bag is a great way to reduce sugar and calories in baked goods, and it measures cup for cup just like sugar.
First, make some lemonade by mixing together fresh, squeezed lemon juice, Stevia In The Raw and water. Set this aside.
I made these berry lemonad pops using 6 molds that hold 1/2 cup each. The amounts that fit into your molds might be slightly different. If you don’t have the molds for the frozen pops, you can use paper cups instead.
The first layer is watermelon lemonade. Blend together watermelon cubes with lemon juice and Stevia In The Raw.
Pour 2½ tablespoons of the mixture into each pop mold. Place in the freezer for about 30 minutes.
The second layer of the berry lemonade pops is lemonade cream. Mix three tablespoons of vanilla yogurt into a cup of lemonade.
Pour 2 1/2 tablespoons of the mixture into each pop mold. Place in the freezer for about 30 minutes.
The final layer is blueberry lemonade. Blend together blueberries and lemonade
Pour the mixture into the pop molds until they are full and you can see the layers of the berry lemonade pops.
Add the plastic sticks to the berry lemonade pops that came with the molds. Freeze until solid, for 6 hours or overnight, depending on your freezer. If you prefer to use wooden sticks (or if you are making the pops in paper cups), place the pops in the freezer for a couple of hours to harden a bit and then insert wooden sticks.
Return to the freezer until solid, for 6 hours or overnight, depending on your freezer. Loosen the pops by running them under hot water or if you are using paper cups, simply peel the cups away.
My kids shared these berry lemonade pops with their friends and they all said they loved them. They commented on how sour, they were but said they like them that way. Their favorite layer seemed to be the middle “lemonade cream” layer.
