Lemon Mint Mojito Popsicles Recipe

19 July

How to make a homemade popsicles recipe.  These mojito ice pops are a refreshing treat for adults in the summer.  They are easy to make at home.  This is a boozy popsicle recipe, but you can omit the rum for nonalcoholic mojito ice pops.


In the summer, my kids like to eat easy homemade popsicles.  However, I also make myself a boozy popsicle recipe.  


These mojito popsicles are easy to make in about 5 minutes.  They are a delicious summer treat that's refreshing with real lemons and limes and a sprig of fresh mint from the garden.




My kids also like lemon lime and mint, so I make them regular mojito popsicles and reserve this boozy ice pops for my husband and me.


Boozy Mojito Popsicles Recipe


After a long day of working, we like to sit on the patio.  The dogs enjoy being outside, and we can watch the chickens roam around.


I've been known to enjoy a boozy popsicle recipe during the hot summer days.  It's just a little bit of alcohol, so it's perfect for me.


These easy homemade popsicles take about 5 minutes to make, and you can keep them in your freezer for up to 3 months after you make them.


How Do You Make Popsicles From Scratch?


It's easy to make a homemade popsicles recipe.  You'll need a base of either yogurt, coconut milk and chia seeds, or juice.  


Yogurt or chia seed popsicles are creamy and softer.  However, these mojito ice pops tend to get hard like ice.


You'll also need fresh fruit, rum, and a sweetener.  You can learn how to make whole fruit popsicles here.

How Do You Make Popsicles Not Icy?


Any popsicle that is water based, like these mojito ice pops, will get icy and very hard when frozen.  To make a softer homemade popsicles recipe, just yogurt or chia seed pudding.


I didn't think this mojito popsicle recipe would be good with a cream base.  However, adding alcohol to make a boozy ice pops recipe does lower the freezing point and makes these easy homemade popsicles less icy.


What Can I Use to Make Popsicles?


If you make a homemade popsicles recipe often, then I recommend buying a silicone popsicle mold.  I really like this silicone popsicle mold because I can use my own popsicle sticks.  


We always seem to lose any sticks that come with the molds, so it's just easier to buy popsicle sticks and use those.


However, if you don't have a popsicle mold, then you use make these mojito popsicles in one of the following molds:


 


What Can I Use Instead of Popsicle Sticks for Popsicles?


If you don't have any popsicle sticks, you can the following to make this boozy popsicle recipe:


  • Plastic spoons
  • Toothpicks (for small ice pops)
  • Straws
  • Wood skewers


How Do You Get Popsicles Out of Molds?


A homemade popsicles recipe can be hard to get out of the mold.  I recommend dipping the mojito ice pops in cold water for 30 seconds.  Repeat if necessary. 


You can also run the popsicles under cold water for 30 seconds.  Using a silicone mold will also help your mojito popsicles recipe release easier.


Are Craft Sticks Safe for Popsicles?


Unless the craft sticks say that they are food safe, assume that they are not food safe.  Any dyes in the sticks could be toxic.  I recommend using popsicle sticks made for food.


How Long Do Homemade Popsicles Recipe Last is the Freezer?


Once your mojito ice pops are frozen, you can take them out of the mold and place them in a freezer bag.  They will last up to three months in the freezer.





Do Alcohol Popsicles Get You Drunk?


There is about 1/2 tablespoon of rum in each of the pops in this boozy popsicle recipe.  It's not enough to get you drunk from one mojito ice pops.  However, keep out of reach of children and eat them responsibly.


How Long Does it Take for Popsicles to Freeze?


These mojito popsicles should freeze in 4-6 hours.  However, I recommend that you plan on letting them freeze overnight.


Mojito Ice Pops Tips


Although this is a fairly straightforward recipe, here are some tips for making your boozy ice pops recipe.


  • To make watermelon mojito, strawberry mojito, or blueberry mojito popsicles, replace the lemon and limes with another fruit.  You can also replace the lime juice with another juice or add more club soda.
  • Omit the rum for nonalcoholic kid friendly mojito popsicles.
  • You can remove your homemade popsicles recipe from the mold and place in a freezer bag.  They will last up to three months in the freezer.
  • Slice the lemons and limes thin.  You can eat the rind, so there's no need to peel them if you don't want to.
  • Dip the mold into cold water for 30 seconds or let the frozen mojito ice pops sit on the counter for 5 minutes to make unmolding easier.
