The Shady Porch: Easy Frozen Fruit Pops

Easy Frozen Fruit Pops

It's summertime, and that means cold treats! I still love to hear the jingle of an ice cream truck because it brings back the memories of how every child in the neighborhood would all sprint to his or her Mom for money, and then to the ice cream man, anxious for that frozen treat...usually a bomb pop. Well, today, though I do NOT have that familiar tune playing from the top of a big white truck, I DO have Easy Frozen Fruit Pops that are yummy and healthy...and you will be as popular as the ice cream man ever was...promise! You do not need pop molds; you can use small paper cups with Popsicle sticks/craft sticks instead. The hardest part at our house is simply waiting for the pops to freeze. The flavor possibilities are vast...we are experimenting with different fruit combinations this summer, too.
Easy Frozen Fruit Pops





Ingredients:
3 cups strawberries
2 kiwis
3-4 T. honey or agave (your preferred sweetener works, too.)

Directions:
1. Puree thawed or fresh strawberries in a blender/food processor. Add the honey (or whatever sweetener you choose) to the strawberries and blend.




2. Peel and chop kiwis by hand. We like chunks of kiwi in the pops but you can puree it as well.



3. Add the chopped kiwi to the strawberries and stir.
4. Pour the fruity blend to the top of the molds and insert stick. 


5. Place in freezer for 4-6 hours. (note: with fruit puree, the outer portions may appear frozen sooner, but the full time allows the popsicle to freeze to the stick or handle.)
6. To remove each mold: quickly dip pop mold into a bowl of warm water; firmly, but gently pull the fruit pop out of the mold. 
7. The easiest step of all - Enjoy!
