Most popsicles are either creamy or fruity. Even though a good number are a blissful union of the two, creamy popsicles usually have a higher quantity of yoghurt while fruity ones have a higher amount of fruits. Popsicles are as bright as lollipops. They have different colours and flavours too. However, while the former is eaten frozen,  the latter is consumed at room temperature. The best part of making popsicles for me is that kids love it. Thus, they can have it in place of candy or ice cream.

How To Prepare

Rinse and peel the pineapple.  Measure out the quantity you need and set it aside for later use. Rinse and peel the watermelon. Take the quantity you want and put the rest away. Add all the ingredients into a clean blender. Blend till it’s pureed. Pour the pureed mixture into a Popsicle mold. Please, make sure you don’t fill the mould to the brim; leave room for expansion. When all the moulds are filled, add the sticks. Place in the freezer for six or more hours. Check the popsicles. If they are ready,  take the mould out of the freezer. Remove the popsicles from the mould by running the bottom of the mould in warm water. Oya, sit down and enjoy your treat. In conclusion, popsicles are a great way to eat fruits. Try and make some today. Sources: Wikipedia Live Eat Learn Featured Image Source: History
