The weather’s warming up, which means it’s time for all sorts of fun, yummy summertime treats. I broke out my popsicle mold today to make these juice and fresh fruit ice pops that I first saw on Pinterest last year.
These were a HIT with the boys! Jack actually said, “Please make these juice pops every day, Mommy.” They’re super easy to make (slice fruit, put into mold, pour in juice, freeze), are only a few calories per pop, and fool kids into thinking they’re getting a decadent treat when, in fact, they’re just having some frozen fruit encased in a tiny bit of juice. I think most adults would find these pops a bit boring, but they can be a refreshing way to get some fruit on those hot, sweltering days.
Fresh Fruit Ice Pops
- Any fruit of your liking, thinly sliced
- Any juice, preferably clear (like apple or white grape)
- Popsicle mold
Fill popsicle mold loosely with sliced fruit. I used strawberries, watermelon and oranges.
Maybe next time I’ll make a grown-up version where instead of juice, I use margarita mix and tequila instead. That would be amazing!
