Fresh Fruit Popsicles
Popsicles are one of the most versatile cold treats you can make. Using flavored sugar water, fresh fruit, fruit juices or just about anything you can dream up, the flavor combinations are endless.
One of the great things about this recipe is you can make it based on which fruits are in season. In addition, you can use it to make flavored ice cubes to float in lemonade or other drinks.
2 cups white grape juice
3 kiwi, sliced thinly
6 strawberries, sliced thinly
18 -20 blueberries
Equally divide fruit among popsicle molds.
Pour grape juice into each mold to fill to given “fill” line or leaving about 1/4 inch space at the top.
Add popcicle sticks & cover.
Freeze several hours or overnight.
When ready to serve, run a small amount of warm water over mold to loosen the popsicles.
Makes 4-8 popsicles, depending on the size of your molds.
Tip: You can use any combination of your favorite fruits. Blackberry, raspberry, peach, mango and grapes work well. Just ensure you slice them thin.
You might also want to try using lemonade or apple juice instead of grape juice.
