Summer Afternoon Treats: Raspberry Lemonade Freezer Pops

My kids have been out of school now for summer vacation for just under 2 weeks. Despite the unusually heavy amount of rain we’ve been getting every day, we are still getting in a good amount of pool time along with movie, library and bowling dates in the afternoons. We usually have those afternoon dates planned to get out of the heat, however, it seems like these days its to get out of the house and stay dry (in some sense).

This is the first summer break that is actually a real summer “break” for both of my kids. My son is entering 2nd grade and my daughter just finished full-time pre-K and will be in Kindergarten in the fall (sniff, sniff)…so I am truly cherishing the time we have at home to be lazy, take spontaneous trips to the beach or Nonna’s house, and just enjoy our time together without a schedule. The ages my kids are at right now are my absolute favorite, they are basically on the same ‘playing field’ as far as recreation goes – they both can swim full lengths of the big pool at the Y and can play in the deep end together (this is huge!) and they are playing as playmates, not as big brother and baby sister. Just yesterday they were sprawled on the family room carpet playing game after game of Monopoly (the Disney version, thanks Grandma!) and Trouble, their two favorite board games right now. I’m also overhearing very spirited and inventive ‘games’ coming out of their bedrooms involving castles, Barbies and Star Wars…apparently Yoda and Barbie can hang like the best of them.

I am loving it!

With good Summer fun must come a good Summer treat – and everyone loves a good freezer pop don’t ya think? When Driscoll’s recently contacted me and asked me to partner up with them to kick off their Summer berry season with a fun family recipe, not only was I totally flattered but I immediately thought of turning one of my kid’s favorite drinks (pink lemonade) into a homemade frozen treat. My kids love berries of all kinds as well as anything sweet that comes out of that freezer so needless to say they were pretty thrilled with the recipe testing part of this project. 🙂

Head over to Driscoll’s for my easy Raspberry Lemonade Freezer Pop recipe, along with some of my other favorite recipes using my family’s most eaten fruit – berries. Hope you all are enjoying your start to Summer like we are!

  6. Somehow I didn’t realize that your son and my youngest son are the same age. It is such a fun age! Sounds like y’all are having a perfect summer and I’m very jealous every time I look at your pool! Of course the popsicles look fantastic!

  10. These are so awesome, Aggie! I kind of want to call you Aggs, but I won’t.

  11. Our last day of school is tomorrow and I am looking forward to lazy days in the pool..rain or not 🙂 These look amazing!

  13. These popsicles look incredible Aggie! Mmm…I haven’t made popsicles in years but this may be the summer. Glad you’re having a good one!

    Oh yeah, and weather…it’s been so rainy and dreary here this past week or so. Then I remembered it seems every June we have quite a bit of dreary weather before it just becomes the regular afternoon thunderstorms. I couldn’t live somewhere without the sun.

  14. These are so cool, refreshing and pretty! Great little summer treat!

  15. Those photos are seriously gorgeous! Beautiful!!!! And the pops sound so fun to make with my kiddos this summer. Heading over to the Driscoll site now. Congrats on partnering with them….. they were wise to call on YOU. These look delish. What every mom wants for her kiddos ~ real, healthy, delicious food that they will LOVE!!!

  16. these look so fun and delicious! i love how vibrant and refreshing it looks.

  17. These would be so refreshing on a day like today! 🙂

  18. Yum yum! Those looks so tasty! I just recently found my freezer pop mold, so I think I’m going to make these this summer, especially since raspberry is my favorite berry!

    Thanks for sharing!

  19. Hi Aggie,I love the way you left some sliced fruit in these popsicles. You must have a serious need for popsicles for your kids living as you do in Florida. I used to make homemade popsicles for my kids all the time. They weren’t gourmet, they were just frozen apple or grape juice, but they were healthy and the kids liked them. They still heard the siren call of the ice cream truck, though!
