With summer coming up, I thought I would share our easy-peasy fruit popsicles. The fruit we use depends on what is the least expensive, most in season and our moods at any given time during the summer. Even my super picky girl who turns her nose up at most fruits will eat them in popsicle form. Heh, heh, heh…
Freeze in any shape popsicle mold you have. Or pour in paper cups, partially freeze the mixture then add popsicle sticks, so the sticks stand upright.
makes about 8 2-ounce popsicles
2 cups pureed peeled and pitted fruit**
1 to 4 Tablespoons sweetener of choice
1/2 to 2 Tablespoons lime or lemon juice
**Note: You can puree fruit very smooth or coarsely depending on the texture your family likes. For really thick purees like mango you may want to use 1 1/2 cups fruit and 1/2 cup juice, water, coconut milk or liquid of choice.
Mix fruit puree with the amount of sweetener and lime or lemon juice needed to taste. Pour into popsicle molds and freeze. I find it takes at least 2 hours to freeze solid enough to un-mold, depending on the size and shape of the popsicle mold.
In mango pops I like to use coconut milk to thin the puree and stir in large flakes of unsweetened coconut before freezing. Yummy!
