I must tell you a little bit about how this flowers in popsicles thing happened. I was driving my kids to school and I said “mommy wants to make popsicles, what flavors can you pleeeease dream up for me?” Before I knew it delightful + tantalizing ideas were dancing around. All of a sudden my daughter screamed out FLOWER POPSICLES!!
And that is how this all happened.
I often dream up wild ideas for popsicles.
You guys have been huge fans of my Lemonade Cucumber Spa Pops. Those make you feel like you are at the spa even when you are not. My Spring Bouquet Pops can whisk you away to a fancy shower, tea party or wedding…even if you are at work in your photo studio 12 hours a day!
These are super fun for warm spring and summer days.
They would be a fun and surprising treat served at a bridal or baby shower.
You can customize the colors of the flowers to suit the color theme of your party.
Do you think a bride could walk down the aisle holding a bouquet of popsicle flowers?
Perhaps…if she doesn’t mind them dripping on her wedding gown…
You can also write sweet little messages on the popsicle sticks.
Just be sure whatever flowers you use are indeed edible and organic.
I used these Star Ice Pop molds. In case you want the same ones.
Have you ever had edible flowers? They are such a fun, colorful and surprising way to add uniqueness to a recipe.
What is your favorite popsicle flavor?
- 16 ounces Cold Water
- 1 ounce Orange Blossom Water
- 1 teaspoon Lemon Juice
- Plain Stevia Drops or your favorite natural sweetener to taste (Honey would be great too) I used one full dropper of stevia.
- a handful of Organic Edible Flowers, rinsed and remove petals
- Have pop molds handy and make sure you have room in your freezer. Combine water, orange blossom water and lemon juice. Sweeten to taste. Pour mixture into molds. Freeze without sticks and petals for about 1 hour. Remove from freezer and add flower petals. You can push them into the molds with the help of a long, skinny spoon or pop stick. Make sure the flowers are scattered throughout the pops. Add sticks and freeze for 2-3 hours more until solid.
- You can use dixie cups or purchase pop molds at our Amazon.com store
