Why Homemade Popsicles Rule
There are lots of reasons to make your own frozen pops at home.
First of all, they can easily be made healthier. It’s no news that a lot of the store-bought versions aren’t exactly the healthiest, since they tend to contain high amounts of added sugar, artificial flavors, etc.
Homemade popsicles on the other hand, made from natural ingredients will come out way more nutritious, and healthier, and can easily be tailored to the diet of your choice (vegan, keto, low carb etc).
Plus, they’re also cheaper on the long run. Once you have the primary equipment set up, you can make tons of yummy pops, in different flavors and without any stress or extra cost.
Not to mention there’s lots of room for creativity, testing and experimenting, so you never get bored.
