It’s time to really “use” frozen popsicles. Beads of sweat pop up on the bridge of my nose when I step from the coolness of my air conditioned house into the Florida humidity. Homemade ice pops are a necessity in the south!
And as we near the end of the school year, I can hear my kids sniffling. We can’t have that. Summer colds suck! I like to make sure my children get plenty of Vitamin C. A simple cold or virus, can throw my daughter into a bad flare as her wonky immune system attacks her knee joints and causes swelling and pain after being “activated” to fight off a normal virus.
A simple cold or virus, can throw my daughter into a bad flare as her wonky immune system attacks her knee joints and causes swelling and pain after being “activated” to fight off a normal virus. Yeah, autoimmune illnesses suck.
And whatever your stance is on the threat posed by the Zika Virus, a little focus on bolstering our immune systems can’t hurt.
This recipe combines a nice little shot of vitamin C with the rehydrating comfort of ginger ale to make a tasty treat.

I based this popsicle recipe on the Orange Spritzers that I used to serve when I volunteered at a non-profit world goods market and cafe as a teenager. The market and cafe went out of business long ago, which makes me sad.
Easy Popsicle Recipe: Mandarin Orange Spritzer popsicles
All you need are three simple ingredients
- mandarin oranges
- 1 can of ginger ale
- orange juice
To make the popsicles:
I added a spoonful of mandarin oranges to each well of the popsicle mold.
Next, I poured in enough orange juice to fill the molds approximately halfway full.
Finally, I topped off the molds with the ginger ale.
Freeze until solid.
Release from the mold by running the bottoms of the popsicle mold under water.
