Rose Popsicle – we need these to beat the heat, to survive harsh summers, to keep kids happy in their summer vacations, and to remember the taste of CHUSKI which hubby would not let me have anywhere.
wow, so many reasons to make a Popsicle. I am sure you all must have been convinced on the first line itself.
Popsicles are so easy to make. Just make some fruit shake or juice and freeze it in Popsicle-moulds and your popsicles are ready.
I have made Popsicles with orange juice (they tasted just like an orange bar), mango shake, banana chocolate shake and these Rose Popsicles with Roohafzah sharbat.
My kids love to drink Roohafzah sharbat. But with the temperature reaching 50 C drinks have failed to provide much relief. So hubby gave this idea of making Roohafzah popsicle to make kids happy.
You can see how hot it is Rose Popsicles started melting even before I could click the snaps.
How to make Rose Popsicle
Preparation time: 5 minutes
Ready to eat after 6-8 hours
made around 8 popsicles
2 cups of water
4 tbsp Roohafzah or any other Rose syrup
2 tbsp sugar
4-5 mint leaves
Note: You can add lemon juice also to it if you like.
To make Rose Popsicle
Mix sugar and water. Add Roohafzah sharbat and mix properly. Fill the Popsicle molds with sharbat. Add some chopped mint leaves to it and keep in the freezer for 6-8 hours to freeze.
If you do have popsicle molds you can either make them in kulfi molds ( like I did) or disposable paper cups.
Just fill the molds/ cups with Roohafzah sharbat and cover it with foil. Freeze it for 2-3 hours.
Make a slit in the foil and arrange stick in it. It should be partially frozen so that stick remains in its position. Freeze again for 4-5 hours.
