July 17, 2023
It's easy to see why summer is almost everyone's favorite time of year. From road trips and family vacays to ice cream and watermelon, there's lots to love about the sunny season. During the grey, barren days of winter, everyone longs for those seemingly endless hazy summer afternoons when pool parties, cool pitchers of lemonade, and comfortable shorts are part of everyday life.
Of course, when summer finally comes and the mercury rises a little too much, simply walking outside can make you want to take up residence inside the freezer. Whether you’re dreaming of warm weather or endeavoring to endure it, these vivaciously scarlet, collagen-spiked frozen pops will help you chill out and enjoy the carefree, slower days of summer.
Strawberry Orange Collagen Pops
Frozen pops made with fresh fruit juice can help you stay frosty on hot summer days. Made with our Collagen Peptides, this sweet summer treat is a simple and refreshing way to keep your cool while supporting your hair, skin, and nails.
Wash the strawberries and remove the green stems. Peel oranges, removing as much of the white pith as you can.
Place fruit in the blender. Blend on high speed until fruit becomes a frothy liquid.
If you prefer smooth, less textured pops, strain the fruit juice through a fine mesh sieve. The navel oranges should be seedless, but strain the juice if you do happen to see a seed.
Pour juice into a pitcher or glass measuring cup with a spout. Using a fork, whisk in 1 scoop of collagen peptides until completely dissolved.
Place 1–2 strawberry slices (depending on how large the strawberry slices are) into each pop mold.
Pour juice into each mold, leaving about one-quarter inch of room at the top (the pops will expand some as they freeze).
Place tops of the pop molds onto the frame and slide into the freezer for about 5 hours, or until frozen solid.
If using a mold that does not come with sticks, place pop mold into the freezer for 2 hours. Remove from freezer and insert sticks into the middle of each pop. Place back in the freezer for another 3 hours, or until completely frozen.
Once frozen, unmold pops from the mold and enjoy.
- To store, wrap each popsicle in plastic wrap, place each pop into a resealable bag, or store in a freezer-safe airtight container with a piece of wax or parchment paper separating each pop.
- Pops can be stored for three to four weeks in the freezer before they start to lose their flavor and texture.
