Refreshing Popsicle Recipe
Do these look good or what? Healthy popsicles! I definitely want to make these when the hot weather gets here. I think these would be good anytime, but especially refreshing on a hot day. They also make a pretty presentation when served. Oh ..and guilt free. :)
I am shopping today and will definitely make sure I get the ingredients to make this recipe. We usually have all these fruits in the house during the summer. Peaches aren't ready yet though. ? I'm not a fan of canned fruit, but I suppose I could get the peaches in their own juice. And maybe a little pineapple would be nice too.
It's basically fruit salad on a stick.
Great recipe for the little critters too. :)
3 cups watermelon puree (seedless if possible)
1/2 cup fresh blueberries
1/2 cup chopped fresh strawberries
1 kiwi, peeled and sliced
1 peach or nectarine, diced small
handful fresh cherries, pitted and chopped
Cut the watermelon into chunks and then puree it in a blender until smooth. Set aside.
Set out about 1 dozen popsicle molds (amount needed will vary depending on size of molds). Fill each one with the chopped fresh fruit. Then pour in the watermelon puree until each mold is full to the top. Place a popsicle stick into each one. Place into your freezer and freeze for about 6 to 8 hours.
When ready to serve, run the popsicle molds under warm water for a few seconds and then pull each one out.
