File this one under “why didn’t I think of that before?” While I was brainstorming for this week’s recipe for our summer popsicle series, I didn’t need to look further than the cup I was sipping out of. All summer, my favorite drink is the Arnold Palmer- the perfect combination of lemonade and iced tea. This is by far the easiest popsicle recipe you will ever make (although you can make it a bit more complex by making your own homemade iced tea and lemonade.) For a twist, you could follow this recipe for basil lemonade (or another type of fresh herb.) Arnold Palmer popsicles are a great treat on a hot summer day.
- 1 and ½ cups lemonade (store-bought or homemade)
- 1 and ½ cups iced tea (store-bought or homemade)
- Mix lemonade and iced tea together and pour into popsicle molds. Freeze for at least 4 hours.
- Alternatively, for a striped effect, you can freeze one layer of lemonade or iced tea at a time, and then pour on the second layer after an hour or so.
Here are the recipes from the first two weeks of our summer popsicle series:
