Creamy 3-Ingredient Limoncello Popsicles

Maybe all that Limoncello clouded my judgement, but, y’all, these super easy, dairy-free, Creamy 3-Ingredient Limoncello Popsicles were “Mama Mia goooood!” Try ’em and see for yourselves?

Easy Limoncello Popsicles

It’s funny, but that evening when my daughter and I found ourselves in a teeny-tiny hotel room with an even more teeny-tiny shower in Rome (Italy), I remembered thinking, ooh I cannot wait to be back home in my house – in my bed – in my shower. But, that was before morning dawned and we began our wandering around that gorgeous city. Now – home will never be the same for me (of course that might have something to do with the fact that this soon-to-be-empty-nester is hoping to put this house on the market and move…but that’s a story for another blog post).

Limoncello Popsicles

I gotta admit, while we were in Rome, we had a hard time keeping our eyes on our feet. The marvelously carved statues on every corner, the architecture, and the gloriously multi-hued fading walls had us mesmerized. So mesmerized that me walking into poles became a daily occurrence! Thankfully, there’s no evidence of this as my daughter was laughing too hard to record anything -thank you for little mercies eh?! While we were in Rome, we also took a few day trips with a tour company called City Wonders Tours. Our first was to a little town called Ravello via the Amalfi coast, and our second was to Sorrento after first exploring the Pompeii ruins. It was on these trips that Cesare and Claudio (our tour guides on each trip) introduced us to some of the best Limoncello I’ve had. Yes, I said us – over there the legal drinking age is 18 and my daughter constantly reminded me of the old adage “while in Rome…”

Amalfi Coast

One of the Limoncello shops we visited handed us samples of Limoncello and Limoncello Crema (which is Limoncello mixed with milk, sugar and vanilla) and explained that the Limoncello there was so good because it was made using the ginormous Femminello St. Teresa lemons, aka Sorrento lemons, that we seemed to run into on each street corner in Amalfi and in Sorrento. Cesare (one of our passionately food-obsessed tour guides) told me to try Limoncello poured onto gelato cos it was just “Mama Mia goooood!” He also told me where to get my hands on some Limoncello Ricotta Cake. Now – I tried the former and I gotta say, he was right: gelato + Limoncello = “Mama Mia goooood!” But, I never quite made it to the store he mentioned to pick up some of that cake…which means I need to go back – right?

St. Teresa lemons aka Sorrento Lemons

Now, I didn’t want to get blacklisted by U.S. Customs so I didn’t bring any Femminello St. Teresa lemons lemons home though I wish I had, but I did bring home some Limoncello and Limoncello Crema and used a bit of the Limoncello to make these super easy, Creamy 3-Ingredient Limoncello Popsicles. I just used evaporated coconut milk, sugar and Limoncello. Y’all, am not sure if it was the Limoncello talking after all the “taste-testing” I was doing – but, these here Creamy 3-Ingredient Limoncello Popsicles sure were “Mama Mia goooood!” ….and am thinking I will need plenty of these over the next few months as I begin the daunting task of going through all the accumulated stuff in this house as I try to get it presentable to sell…wanna come help? I’ll pay you with Limoncello Popsicles?

  1. Oh geez, you don’t have to make that offer twice! I’m a sucker for good limoncello, and I’ll be down there in a jiffy! I figured you guys were off in Italy, and it sounds like you had a bunch of fun. I’m so happy for you! Italy is one of my favorite countries in the whole world, and I totally know what you mean about the incredible architecture in Rome. I can’t wait to hear more about this trip! (Also, isn’t it funny how small the hotel rooms and showers are in Italy? Ours kept getting smaller with each stop we made!) Anyhoo, love this idea of limoncello popsicles. Perfect for these hot summer days! Also, there’s a house for sale down the street. Just sayin’. 🙂

    1. Haha – come on over, my friend, I’ll put our Limoncello Rationing System on hold just for ya! 🙂
      We are back – got back last Tuesday – and had 2 days of college orientations to attend as soon as we got home.
      You aren’t kidding about the smaller rooms and showers – I thought it was just cos we were in Monti – close to The Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore – but from what you say, doesn’t look like location had anything to do with it. From all the places I’ve been – I loved Italy too – definitely one of my favs – we weren’t back 24 hours before Lil S and I started researching our next trip there! I have so many pictures and stories…over the next few months or so I’ll try and unwind ’em on here or via email… btw – hoping to hear about y’alls trip too…
      Oh…and also btw – this place down the street from y’all comes with 24 hour access to y’alls kitchen? If so am putting a bid in pronto! 🙂 Happy Monday David!

  2. Oh my, yes, Limoncello on gelato is the best! And you MUST try that limoncello ricotta cake. I had one when I was in Italy and oh m god so good. Damn. Now I’m craving it and may have to try one at home! And maybe have one of these popsicles while I do it 🙂

  3. wow your Rome trip sounds incredible and yes you do need to go back for that cake, I will have to go with you :).
    Perfect timing for these delicious popsicles, I could use one right now

  4. OMG, I am SO jealous!!! I hope you guys had a BLAST in Rome! From the sound and looks of it, you definitely did!! I love love loooove limoncello, so these popsicles are BRILLIANT! I could easily devour a few dozen of these tart beauties! Pinned! Cheers, friend!
    P.S. I’ll be thinking about you! I know it must be hard watching your mini me go off to college. All the hugs and lots of love your way! XOXO

  5. Ah Rome. Gosh now you’re taking me back Shashi! When I was a student in the 1990’s my friends and I bought inter-railing tickets and traveled about Europe with our rucksacks and a shared tent. They were wonderful days and I so long to take Lynne to see Rome (and all the other European cities we ventured too).

    Love these Limoncello Popsicles! In fact I was only just talking about Limoncello and my Rome adventures on Saturday night at our favourite local Italian Restaurant. I even persuaded Lynne to try a Limoncello (she really didn’t need persuading) and she loved it!

    Glad you are both home safe and sound and looking forward to hearing all about your adventures!

  6. WOW!! I love these pops girl! And all the pics. Awesome. Have never seen a lemon quite that BIG!!! I’m so glad you got to enjoy this trip together, so important. So these limoncello pops are brilliant, as the Brits would say. Spent a good bit of time with my in-laws who are both Brits – during the interim of our two houses, so maybe it’s rubbing off. Will def. have to try these delicious pops my friend. Having just moved twice in the last month, I will pass on my best moving tips. Garbage bags drawn up around hanging clothes and coats, and shrink wrap. Shrink wrap can be found in the moving department at Home Depot and so inexpensive and easy to use. It comes on a hand held roller and you wrap around anything that doesn’t have a cover (baskets, etc.) or things that you just want to keep together for the move. It was a lifesaver for our us. XO

  7. These delicious adult pops sound so refreshing. Limoncello is so lovely to sip on in the afternoon while watching the people passing by on the cobble stone streets of Tuscany or as a ice lolly on your balcony, no matter where you are in the world.

  8. First of all, Shashi, your pics have been GORGEOUS! Can’t stop looking at your IG stories! So so pretty!! What a trip of a lifetime and it only reminds me that hubby and I have to go to Italy, like, yesterday!
    Love lemon anything so these are right up my alley. That limoncello cream sounds amazing and the perfect treat as does these pops! And so simple to make! Pinned, of course.
    P.S. where ya moving? That’s gotta be kind of exciting, right??
    Have a lovely weekend, my friend! XO
