How To Make Apple Cider Pops
Today’s recipe isn’t much of a recipe. It’s more of an idea. A how-to.
A bit of background:
A popular food item at the Minnesota State Fair is the cider pops in the horticulture building.
People line up for the treats – just $1.50 a pop – which are just frozen apple cider, in ice pop form.
But you definitely don’t have to go to the fair to enjoy these refreshing treats.
And you can enjoy them all year-round.
Where To Buy Ice Pop Molds
I found these disposable ice pop molds on Amazon: Frozip Ice Popsicle Molds
A bag of 125 was about $10.00.
There are many other options on Amazon – some larger, some longer, some cheaper, etc.
How To Make Frozen Apple Cider Pops
- You’ll need apple cider (desired amount) and disposable ice pop molds.
- Use a funnel to pour apple cider into freezer bag. Fill bags to fill line.
- Once you’re done filling the bags, place in the freezer for 3 hours to freeze completely.
Other Uses For Disposable Freezer Pop Bags
Got leftover bags? Here are some other uses for them:
- Make other flavors of ice pops: Any fruit juice can be made into a frozen ice pop. Grape juice, apple juice, cranberry juice, etc. You can also mix juices.
- Make yogurt pops: Puree frozen fruit, yogurt, and sweetener (here’s a simple recipe) and freeze.
- Make frozen iced latte pops: Make your favorite latte recipe – coffee, milk/cream/sweetener – let it cool, and funnel into bags to freeze.
- Make frozen hot chocolate pops: Make your favorite hot chocolate recipe, let it cool, and freeze.
- Make frozen sangria pops: Fill the freezer pop bags with sangria. If you include fruit, cut it small enough to fit into the bags.
These bags can also be used for snack bags or for storing small amounts of chocolate chips, nuts, etc.
