Fresh fruit Popsicle madness!
This may sound like a frivolous post. But, I kid you not, when it’s 100+F/40+C, in my case, for months on end, there is nothing like an icy fruit popsicle to cool you down in a hurry. I discovered a wonderful passion fruit Popsicle at my local 7 Eleven and been addicted ever since. So why not put them up in your own freezer for a quick and healthy fix on demand.
Found these fantastic molds that cost nothing and with a never ending supply of fresh fruit I’ve been whipping up some pretty awesome and healthy alternatives to the ice cream varieties, which aren’t that refreshing when the heat screams for icy fruity relief.
The possibilities are endless, so let your imagination be your guide.
No recipe required. Basically, a pureed fruit base with a little added juice is all there is to it. Puree the fruit, or several fruits, in a blender or food processor to the consistency you prefer. Chunky or smooth, or process in batches of various textures and mix together before pouring into the molds. You might also stir in some Greek style plain yogurt into your fruit mixture for a “Creamsicle” like effect. If you are using tart fruits the addition of a little sugar may be required.
To unmold a single Popsicle simply wrap your hand around the mold and the Popsicle will release in about 10 seconds, or allow the molds to sit at room temperature to unmold all the Popsicle at once.
That really is all there is to it! ENJOY!
