Sweet Adventures Blog Hop January: Popsicle Party

I had such a fun time hosting the Sweet Adventures Blog Hop last time that I’m doing it all over again with a new theme – Popsicles!

We’re in the middle of summer here and it’s hot hot hot - what better way to cool down then with an icy treat? Homemade ice cream can be a time consuming process, but a homemade popsicle? Now THAT’S easy. Mix up your flavourings, pour into moulds and wait for them to set in the freezer – and ta da! Popsicle Party time!

  • Yay, so excited, I had plans to try making some popsicles for the first time this month and blogging about it anyway so this is the BEST timing and theme!!

    • Woohoo! Can’t wait to see what you whip up Helen!

  • Dude, I’m in!* Imma create some kinda Paleta or something.

    I take issue with the word ‘Popsicle’ for an Aussie-hosted blog hop though… : )

    *If I have time.

    • Ooo I didn’t even know what a Paleta was! I had to Google it. Sounds delicious!

      And yes apologies for the Americanised naming, Icy Pole Party didn’t have the same ring to it ;)

  • not exactly hot today but im popsicle all the way! love how yours has a real nice burst of colour!

    • It’s suddenly gotten cool hasn’t it, these Australian summers are confusing!

  • Am so happy to stumble upon your blog and can’t wait to take part in the popsicle party.
    It has been awhile I posted since Christmas. This theme is perfect. Weather here in Asia has been crazy hot and cranking up the over seems to be an impossible option now :). Have a wonderful week ahead!! Cheers-Jo

    • Oh I am so happy for you to join us Jo! Can’t wait to see what you create :)

  • This is such a great idea, especially considering how crazy hot it’s been down under … Plus I would never have thought to make posicles without this prompt. But I’ll be calling them Icy poles in my post! ;)
