Peanut Butter Banana Frozen Yogurt Pops with Chocolate Drizzle
Hey, hey! It’s Memorial Day! Yay, Yay!
First I just have to, no want to, say thank you so much to those who have served our country…
You guys are brave and you seriously rock!
Since in my mind it is summer, that means only one thing, strawberries.
Lots and lots and LOTS of strawberries, and watermelon and nectarines and blueberries. Ok, fine obviously all summer fruit is racing through my mind right now. Honestly, I can not get them out of my head. Fruit and ice cream, seem to be the only thing I want to cook/bake with right now.
Oh and burgers.
Hope you don’t mind.
I thought there really was no better way to kick off summer than with fresh homemade strawberry-basil limeade. Yeah, you heard me I said limeade, it’s sweet and sour and so thirst quenching.
It’s the new lemonade. All right, not really, but it’s just as good!
I got a thing for limes. They rule and so does basil, so I put them together.
I am a genius. Right?
Then I made these ice cubes.
Ice cubes with fruit in them. Now that makes a pretty drink. Just freeze the fruit in some tequila (you can skip this if you would like) and lime juice, this obviously makes some extremely fun and oh so summery ice cubes! There’s not all that much tequila, because well obviously, the tequila does not freeze, but when I mixed just a few tablespoons in with the lime juice it worked like a charm! Just a fun little (very harmless) little kick.
I just love these ice cubes, I mean come on. Tell me these are not the prettiest looking ice cubes you ever laid your eye on? Yeah, I think I am crushing on them hard. Get it “crushing on them”.
No? Ah, I know. I need to not try not to be funny because I have not a humorous bone in my body. Watching or rather listening to me try to tell a joke is the most uncomfortable thing. Luckily, I gave up trying a long time ago. Trust me this is best for all of us, just ask my brothers.
Other than waiting the hour for the ice cubes to freeze this is the easiest thing ever. Five minutes prep and your done.
That’s an awesome summer recipe and seriously you probably can’t get to the store and back in under an hour. Well, at least there is no way I can do that. My grocery store trips tend to be an hour and a half round trip, two hours if I have to stop at Einstein’s to get bagels. Ugh.
The only thing is if you want your water to be well, sparkly and carbonated, you have to drink these right away. If you are not interested in drinking the whole thing right then and there I suggest leaving the strawberry-basil-lime mix in the fridge. Then just add a little of the mix to a glass and pour in fresh sparkling water. This way you can drink it whenever you want. Or you can also just skip the sparkling water all together and use regular water, but come on sparkling water is so good with the limeade.
It is awesome an awesome little summer drink!
Do the sparkles.

This looks so delicious, I can’t wait to make it. How much does this recipe typically make?
Thank you, Julia!! This should make about one regular size pitcher, so maybe close to a gallon.

Thank you so much!
I’ve been seriously toying with the idea of having people over this weekend just so I have an excuse to make these ice cubes, Tieghan! I love that they are so pretty, but also genius for keeping the drink from getting diluted in the hot weather.
Haha! You should do it!
are you even old enough to enjoy to tequila ice cubes? :o) Thanks for linking up to Tasteful Tuesdays at Nap-Time Creations. This will be featured this weekend at my Fun Summer Ideas round up… come on over and check it out. Be sure to grab a featured button to proudly display as well! Emily @ Nap-Time Creations
Haha! No, I am not an honestly I do not drink AT ALL(not my thing, but I LOVE to cook/bake with it). I made the ice cubes for my family and only used a tablespoon just for fun, so there was barley any tequila in ours!
Thanks so much for the feature!
Drinks like this is why I love berry season.
This looks so good and refreshing! I love the color!!
I love the color too! Thanks Jeni!
Those lime half ice cubes? Genius. Love them! 🙂
Thank you for sharing at Marvelous Mondays this week!
Thanks so much Carrie!
