Mocktail Pops are ideal slur-pies for a hot summer day. It is healthy with fresh fruit juice and pulp in it. Adding lime provides just the right amount of acidity. A mocktail turned into popsicles contains two main ingredients – pineapple and pomegranate grenadine.

Grenadine is a very sweet concentrated pomegranate juice with a slightly acidic taste due to the addition of fresh lime squeeze in it. A ready made grenadine is easily available in the stores but I always recommend making grenadine at home. It is easy and more healthy. Home made grenadine also tastes better as there are zero preservatives.

The same is true for the pineapple pulp used in the popsicle. I prefer getting fresh pineapple and cooking the fresh cut pineapples in sugar in place of getting canned pineapples.

I have also introduced a tangy taste to this recipe that comes from using the Indian Chaat masala. That makes this mocktail pops chatpata as well.

My Inspiration for Mocktail Pops

I created mocktail pops for the first time around 5 years back on a hot summer day. Working under warm conditions was really tiring me out. With temperatures above 100F drains your energy level quickly. To boost my energy levels, I created a mocktail which was not perfect but it did the job at the time. Over the next few attempts, I finally came up with a perfect recipe for the popsicles that suited my palate.
