Remember how great a popsicle tasted on a hot day when you were younger? That pleasure can be yours again with these very tasty adult popsicles. They’re perfect for a hot afternoon!
Remember sucking on a popsicle, trying to lick the juice before it all melted? You invariably ended up with it dripping off your chin. It tasted so refreshing and good.
When you eat a popsicle now, it feels a bit too sweet but just as much fun to eat. There’s a new trend out there aimed at changing your plain orange popsicle for something a bit more dynamic.
Adult popsicle recipes are as easy to make as the ones your mother used to make for you but the flavours are much more mature.
These are not the popsicles you should be sharing with the kids but your girlfriends will love them when you’re sitting poolside.
They feature alcohol and other tasty adult treats like coffee. Whip up a batch for your next afternoon with friends or enjoy them solo on a hot day with your book while soaking up some sunshine.
You could also get really naughty and share them with your favourite man. All of these can be made in the popsicle mold of your choice.
