Ahh, summertime in quarantine! A staycation in your backyard or living room can be a nice getaway with the right ingredients! Get your kiddie pool out and grab those sunglasses because now more than ever, a nice infused popsicle is just what we need to relax. Follow the recipes to a T or mix and match your infused drinks to make the perfect pop ratios! We know that whatever you create will uplift your tastebuds and your mood!
Before you get started, let’s make sure you are set up for success. Here are some game-changing popsicle tips:
No mold? No problem! You can get creative and use other things like silicone muffin tins, dixie cups, or an ice cube tray.
Soak the sticks in water for 15 minutes while you are preparing the puree for your pops. This helps prevent the sticks from floating or moving around.
Set your pops free! To loosen your pops from your mold once they are frozen, run the outside of the mold under warm water. This should slightly melt the outermost areas, making it easier to free your pops!
Dosage: The amount of THC or CBD your pop contains will depend on the size of the mold you use. A good rule of thumb is to keep track of the total amount you put in the recipe and then divide it by the number of pops you made.
Storage: Unless you plan to eat all the pops at once, you may want to store them. Tupperware or a gallon size ziplock bag works well, but it’s a good idea to separate each pop with a layer of parchment or wax paper to prevent them from sticking together.

Blend all ingredients together, pour into popsicle molds, insert the sticks, and freeze for 4+ hours before enjoying.
Strawberry Lemon-Limeade Popsicles

1 lime (zested and juiced- use both!)
1/4c. raw honey
1 bottle of Major Pink Lemonade (100mg THC/bottle)

Mango Chili Lime Popsicles
3 ripe mangoes (peeled & cut into 1/2 inch cubes)
1/2 tsp + 1/4 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 tbsp Chamoy
two pinches of cayenne
3 limes (zested and juiced- use both!)
1 bottle Wildside CBD Mango Tropical Storm infused drink – available at Dockside!
Combine 1/3 of the chopped mango in a bowl with 1/2 tsp chili powder and a pinch of cayenne- set aside. Puree the remaining mango with 1/4tsp chili powder, another pinch of cayenne, plus the juice and zest of the lime.

Happy Apple Chai Cider Popsicles
2 bottles of Happy Apple Infused Cider- available at Dockside!
1c almond or oat milk
1/2 in knob of fresh ginger (peeled and sliced)
2 cinnamon sticks
7 whole cloves
6 cardamom pods
1tsp vanilla extract
Combine all ingredients except for the almond/oat milk in a saucepan. Bring it to a light boil and then simmer for 30 minutes. Remove from the heat and cool completely. Once cooled, strain out all of the chunks. Next, stir the almond or oat milk into the chai-infused cider. Pour into your popsicle molds, insert sticks, and freeze for 4+ hours. Since these pops are more liquidy, you may need to find a reinforcement method to keep your sticks from tilting while you are waiting for them to freeze.
