This post is for readers 21 and over. Are you a popsicle and fruit bar person? We are. We LOVE us some popsicles in the summer, spring, winter, anytime…in fact it could be 5 degrees outside and my kids would ask for popsicles. With all of the food allergies and sensitivities in our house, we can’t do corn syrup or food dyes. And it’s hard to find a popsicle or fruit bar without corn syrup products in them. Believe me, we’ve tried. We actually prefer the Edy’s Outshine bars don’t have any of that junk, are made with real fruit juice. Otherwise, our other option is organic popsicles and $10 for 4 bars isn’t really an option. I at least know the kids are getting some fruit in their snack too for a treat. I am hooked on the Black Cherry flavor. And if you melt it in a glass for the kids , it makes a yummy slushy. Sometimes I will melt a few together and let them mix flavors and they end up with a tropical fruit slushy and Ill add a little something extra to make frozen fruit bar grown up slushy drinks.
Below here are some grown up frosty drinks from popsicles!
I have to admit as a grown-up I like having a treat myself, Here are a few drink “recipes” made with frozen fruit bars. A “splash” refers to about a half of a shot. These can also be made with fizzy water to make mocktails. Melt until slushy:
–2 strawberry flavored bars just until they are slightly soft and mash them with a spoon, and add a splash or two of rum
-2 lime bars and a bit of tequila makes an instant margarita
-1 Coconut bar, 1/2 cup of pineapple juice, and a splash rum would be good with a bit of pina colada…
-2 Peach, a splash of sparkling water and a few sprigs of crushed fresh mint and splash of bourbon
Always drink responsibly! Check out one of my favorite adult drinks with Lillet and orange juice here.
Summer has to be yummy for the grown ups too and these frozen fruit bar grown up slushy drinks are yummy!
