Raspberry Limeade Popsicles (2 ways!)

Raspberry Limeade Popsicles - Rebekah and her Ramblings. A cool and healthy hot summer day dessert! I know I’ve said it recently, but it is as hot as sin out there. Like I sweat sitting inside. I sweat walking from my car to the mailbox. I sweat IN MY CAR. I love love love ice cream, but when it’s hot outside, a popsicle is sometimes a bit more refreshing since they are lighter.  I love raspberries and these popsicles bring those two things together reallll nice. Gluten free and I have 2 ways for you to make them based on your preference!!

Raspberry Limeade Popsicles 

Yield: 6 popsicles
Prep Time: 5 minutes                    Freeze Time: at least 6 hours

What you need:

  • 3/4 cup lime juice
  • 6 tablespoons sugar
  • 3/4 cup raspberries (I used frozen)
  • 1 .75 cups water

Directions (first way)

  • Blend everything together in a blender until smooth and sugar is dissolved
  • Pour the mixture into the molds and freeze for at least 6 hours
  • This makes a smooth, not chunky popsicle, but will be kind of foamy. Part of the popsicle will be a bit creamier (these are the ones I took pictures of at the top)

Directions (2nd way)

  • Raspberry Limeade Popsicles - Rebekah and her Ramblings. A cool and healthy hot summer day dessert!Mix the sugar and lime juice in a medium sized bowl, stir until the sugar has dissolved
  • Add the water and raspberries
  • Using the back of a spoon, gently crush the raspberries against the side of the bowl and continue stirring until the raspberries are softly crushed and blended. Taste for flavor
  • Pour the mixture into the popsicle mode and freeze for at least 6 hours
  • This will create a chunkier (at the bottom) popsicle – you will taste the seeds, but can also eat the raspberries
