One of my new favorite treats to indulge in is the Frosted lemonade at Chic Fil A. It is a simple and delicious treat and reminiscent of a creamsicle but with a lighter lemon flavor. I love the original but as I was buying the lemonade to first make these, I saw the pink lemonade and thought "why not?"
These raspberry frosted lemonade pops are refreshing and so simple to make! You still have a few weeks left of summer to enjoy these and I think you really should go ahead and do that.
I have now made these a few times and have tweaked the recipe each time to the point that I now am really happy with them. These pictures are from the first time I made them and while they were good, I think my newest version is a little bit better.
The main difference in the first few times I made it is the use of fresh raspberries. The first few times I just used raspberry lemonade and while it was tasty, the flavor was just lacking something. Using the fresh raspberries in lieu of the flavored lemonade was just what this recipe needed!
Raspberry Frosted Lemonade Pops
1 1/2 cup vanilla ice cream
1/2- 3/4 cup fresh squeezed lemonade
1/4 cup raspberries
sliced lemons (optional)
Place all ingredients in blender and blend til fully Incorporated. You can add more ice cream or lemonade if you would like, this is one of those recipes that is more to taste and you can play around with to get it exactly how you would like it.
if you want to use lemon slices for aesthetic reasons, place a slice in bottom of cup. Fill cups (or popsicle molds) with the frosted lemonade mixture and place stick in middle of cup. Freeze for at least 4 hours and enjoy!
and as a side note, you can always add a little bourbon to this to give yourself a little added oomph;)
