Summer Fruit Popsicles


Fresh Fruit Popsicles

 

At this point in the summer I recommend you get your hands on all the wonderful fruits you
can like blueberries, strawberries and peaches. With them you can start to make different recipes
that you may store away like jams or freeze for another time like pies, and popsicles.  This is a
great way to enjoy the taste of summer even when there is a chill in the air.

 

 

Orchard

 

I visited a local orchard and had a great time picking fruit to be used in different recipes.
I have already made my Peach Crumble and today’s recipe is summer fruit popsicles.
All you’ll need is a blender or food processor, fresh fruit and some orange juice.

 

 

Fresh Fruit from the Orchard

 

2 cups strawberries, sliced
2 cups blueberries
2 cups, peeled and sliced peaches
3/4 cup orange juice or water

 

Fresh Fruit Popsicle ingredients

 

In food processor blend strawberries and 1/4 cup orange juice and set aside. Blend blueberries
and 1/4 cup orange juice and set aside. Blend peaches and 1/4 cup of orange juice and set aside.

You can make so many combinations of popsicles. Choose to mix all the fruit together, do
single fruit pops or make a design.

 

Fresh Strawberry Popsicle

 

For your one flavor fruit pops pour single fruit mixture in a popsicle mold and place popsicle stick
in center of mold, pressing a third of the way down. Freeze for at least 4 hours. Take molds out of
freezer, run under hot water to loosen and enjoy!

 

Popsicle Designs

 

To make a striped design popsicle there are a few more steps. Pour one flavor of fruit to fill a third
of the mold (you can use measuring spoons to make sure each mold has the exact same amount
of fruit).
Place mold in freezer for at least 4 hours.
Pour another fruit to fill another third of the mold and place popsicle stick in the center.
Freeze again for at least 4 hours. Finally, add a third fruit (or the first flavor you added) and fill the
rest of the mold. Place back into the freezer for another 4 hours.
Remove and run mold under hot water to loosen.
This sweet treat is fat free and a great way to enjoy all the tasty fruits of the summer season.
