Pomegranate popsicles (summer special recipe) – A super tasty ice pops recipe of pomegranate & lemon juice. Not only for kids but a treat for whole family.
Here’s a simple 3 ingredient recipe of mind blowing popsicles to cool down yourself this summer. I totally forget to make these yummy popsicles until I saw Masterchef India season 4th episode where Neha made a similar “chuski” and was eating it all over the places 🙂 The very next day I couldn’t control myself and made these popsicles in no time. It hardly take time to essemble all the ingredients and then rest of the work is anyway done by freezer. So in hardly 10 mins + few hours of deep freeze and the pops are ready.
These ice pops are quite popular across the globe. They are known by different names like “popsicles” in US and Canada, “ice lolly” in UK and Ireland, “ice block or ice pole” in Australia/New Zealand etc and “chuski” or “gola” in India. Normally ice pops are made by freezing flavored water or fruit juice around a stick. Sometime artificial coloring is also added. However today’s recipe is free of all artificial flavors. All natural good for health ingredients are used in these pretty looking ice pops.
