These orange popsicles are bright and refreshing. With just two ingredients and no refined sugar they are a great healthy treat the whole family can enjoy.
These fresh homemade orange popsicles are a great alternative to store bought pops. Made with freshly squeezes orange juice and natural honey, they are naturally gluten free and free from refined sugar. The wonderful color of these ice lollies are completely natural with no artificial colors.
They are a great to have ready in the freezer when the kids want a treat and you want to give them something healthy!
Oranges: I use fresh oranges in this recipe to keep these an easy and healthy treat. Oranges can vary in their flavor and sweetness. What every oranges you use make you its a type you're happy to eat on its own.
If you can't get fresh oranges you could use orange juice. Look out for fresh juice that's not from concentrate and with no added sugar. Bottled juice is usually sweeter than freshly squeesed so you may need to dilute it with some water to suite your tastes and reduce the amount of added honey.
Honey: a little honey adds some sweetness to these popsicles without refined sugar. You can taste the honey in these popsicles so I reccomend using a mild tasting honey you are happy to eat on its own.
If you would rather not use honey you can replace this with regular white sugar or with maple syrup. If using maple syrup keep in mind you will likely be able to taste this in the popsicles.
How to make orange popsicles
Cut the oranges open and juice the oranges. You want enough juice for about X cups (600mls).
Add the honey and stir well until all the honey is dissolved into the juice.
Hot tip: make sure there is room in your freezer for your popsicle molds before you try to fit them in, or there will be tears!
Pour into popsicle molds, add sticks and freeze for at least four hours or until firm.
How to serve
To serve remove from the molds and enjoy!
How to store
These popsicles will store well in an airtight container with some baking paper between them to stop them sticking together for up two months, but I doubt they will last that long!
