Summertime Popsicles

I’m not gonna lie. The amount of cake and ice cream that I’ve eaten this past month is ridiculous and trust me, it was NOT in moderation. Knowing full well that the rest of the summer is going to be busy for me, I had to come up with dessert recipes that are healthier and easier to make. What better summertime dessert than popsicles!? They take no time to make, are low in sugar, and are perfect if you have kids.

Today, I have Strawberry Kiwi, Mixed Fruit, and Red, White, and Blue Popsicles. (The red, white, and blue is perfect for the 4th of July).

Fruit Popsicles


In order to make these popsicles you either need a popsicle mold (I found mine at HomeGoods and TjMaxx. You can find them at WalmartΒ and Target too!) or you can use disposable cups and wooden sticks.

Instructions
Strawberry Kiwi Pops
  1. Add the kiwis to your blender or food processor. Blend until smooth and set aside in a bowl.
  2. Add the strawberries into the blender and blend until smooth. (Note: Taste both purees to see if they need sugar added. Use the ripest fruit possible to avoid having to add extra sugar.)
  3. Put the kiwi and strawberry purees into the popsicle mold in whatever design you would like. I layered mine, but you could try swirling the two together. (I found it easiest to spoon the purees into the mold. You could also try putting them into a liquid measuring cup and pouring them in. I tried both ways and I made a mess both times!)
  4. Put in the popsicle sticks and freeze overnight or until firm.
Mixed Fruit Pops
  1. Place your fruit into the popsicle mold in whichever way you want. I put in two kiwis (one on top of the other), then some strawberries, and then I filled in the empty spots with blueberries.
  2. Add enough coconut water into the molds to fill to the top.
  3. Put in the popsicle sticks and freeze overnight or until firm.
Red, White, and Blue Pops
  1. Add the strawberries to your blender or food processor. Blend until smooth. Pour into a bowl and set aside.
  2. Add the blueberries to your blender and blend until smooth.
  3. Whisk the coconut milk with the honey.
  4. Layer the popsicles with the strawberry puree in the bottom of the mold, add the coconut milk mixture, then top with enough blueberry puree to bring the mixture to the top of the mold.
  5. Put in the popsicle sticks and freeze overnight or until firm.
