We’re having an “80’s Throwback Summer” as our state slowly pulls out of pandemic life.
*Slip n slides
*Water balloon fights
*Sprinkler fun on the trampoline
*Making potions and lotions out of whatever we can find in the yards around our neighborhood.
Since we skipped right over Spring in Ohio and summer came blazing in, we decided to chill out and add these delicious elderberry popsicles to our bucket list.
Elderberry popsicles are a super quick and easy way to up-level your nutrition during the warmer months. It’s a fun activity for the kids to do all by themselves, too. Try our recipe below!
Elderberry Popsicle Ingredients
*3/4c Trisha’s Elderberries Signature Syrup
*1c 100% Fruit Juice (we like blueberries + coconut water pureed)
*Popsicle mold kit (I prefer the silicone style as they pop out easier: https://amzn.to/373TKPT)
How to Make Elderberry Popsicles
In a bowl, combine all ingredients.
Pour liquid into the popsicle mold. Freeze for 1 hour or until your popsicle stick has a fighting chance to stay upright.
Add your popsicle stick and continue freezing overnight.
Variations to up-level the nutritional value of your elderberry popsicles
- Bring fruit juice to a simmer on your stovetop and dissolve 1T of grass fed gelatin. Add it to the elderberry syrup in your bowl.
- Add the juice of 1 lemon to the mix
- Replace water with coconut milk (this one is super clean: –>https://amzn.to/3eTZQ86) for additional healthy fats. Yes, this will change the flavor a bit.
- Add 10 drops of Concentrace to the liquid for additional trace mineral support: –> https://amzn.to/2BHvWpu
I like to set my popsicle mold on top of a cookie sheet just to keep them upright. I’m a bit OCD about stick straightness – the crooked sticks drive me nuts.
