Each of our Taste Test Reviews comes with the original recipe and the tester's notes/changes listed with the ingredient list in blue. We hope you enjoy!
Refreshing, tangy, and light, these popsicles are some of the best I have ever tasted. Before making this recipe I always assumed making popsicles was difficult. However, it couldn't be easier! Adding the fruit to the food processor, pouring it in the molds, and letting them freeze, that's it!
Not only do these popsicles taste absolutely delicious, but making them myself I know exactly what I am consuming. I don't have to worry about strange preservatives, sub-par ingredients, or added sweeteners. Fruit, honey, and lime, it doesn't get much better than that! I am now a convert to at-home popsicles. You should definitely give this recipe a try.
