This is Alessandro, your friendly chef. We hope you enjoyed making simple recipes like the biscuit train and coconut ladoos. It is summer here at Jollydale and we have been harvesting ripe and juicy watermelons since last month. With the help of Calvin the Scarecrow, I have got so many watermelons that I gave all of my favourite residents some special homemade watermelon popsicle sticks. They were really yummy!
Jax and Jane loved the popsicles, and farmer Phil called them ‘Phil-tastic’. The best part is that the recipes are easy to make. However, you need an adult to help you cut and grind the fruits. Get ready with your chef’s hat and an appetite for something tasty, healthy and cool to beat the summer heat.
2. Add some water to the pulp so it becomes more liquid and resembles a juice.
3. Filter the mixture with a juice strainer and collect the juice without any fruit pieces in it. It must look clear, like this.
4. Add some sugar to the clear juice.
5. Pour the juice into the popsicle mould and freeze it overnight. Your popsicles are ready.
P.S: You can replace watermelon with other fruits like mango, strawberry, and oranges.
It’s time to have fun with the recipes now: You can make mixed fruit popsicles by adding little juice from different fruits into the popsicle mold. However, you must ensure that you freeze one layer of juice completely before pouring the next. Otherwise, there is a chance of all of the fruit juices mixing. You would not want to have a mango-watermelon-orange-strawberry flavoured together popsicle, would you?
Keeping all this in mind, whip out your chef hats, make those popsicles and share your photos with us. Popsicles can be very colourful indeed. Well, here is another colourful DIY that parents can help build for their kids. Learn how to make a colour wheel for kids.
