4rth of July homemade Popsicle!

Hello Beautiful people!

Happy 4th!!! and if you are reading this after the 4th I hope you had a great one!! ๐Ÿ™‚ and if you are outside of the u.s then you can still enjoy this as an AWESOME summer treat ๐Ÿ™‚

One thing I’ve noticed about holidays on my vegan lifestyle is that… I am often left out because I don’t enjoy certain creamy snacks!!! but I have kind of learnt to bring my own snacks to events…

But what kind of snack could possibly be good for a hot summer’s day? well.. POPSICLES!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

now I don’t like buying popsicles when they are just so easy to make… without all the added sugar and stuff like that… so once again I turned to Gemma’s Youtube ๐Ÿ™‚ Gemma makes Awesome desserts and I have been obsessed with her dairy free stuff!!!

I will leave a link to her popsicle video below, which is where I took the original pic and ingredients from as well !!!

I used my NutriBullet and it worked just fine and for the popsicle container I just got from my local grocery store!! it was 3-4 dollars!!

I think you can just use whatever fruit you have and start experimenting! but here are some fun ideas from Gemma’s Channel ๐Ÿ™‚
