It feels like summer out there and if your kids are anything like mine, they come craving popsicles…and often bring the neighborhood kids with them. I love being a house where the kids find refuge from the heat, but I refuse to buy popsicles containing artificial colors and flavors.
I started making fruit popsicles a couple years ago and they are so super simple that it’s almost silly not to make them yourself. There really are no rules to making your own fruit pops, and as with most of my cooking, I kind of just throw things together and hope for the best. But my favorite seems to be these babies below made with orange juice and a mix of kiwi, raspberries, blueberries and strawberries.
- Fresh fruit. Peaches, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries or kiwi are some of my favorites.
- Liquid. Orange juice, blended watermelon, coconut water, etc.
- Wash and slice the fruit. Add to the popsicle molds arranging some fruit along the side if you are concerned about the appearance. Pour liquid into molds and insert the stick. Freeze overnight. When ready to eat, run the mold under hot water for a few seconds to remove the popsicle.
