What is the one way you can learn to love fruit if you aren't a fan? In POPSICLE form :) I mean, really, who doesn't love popsicles? I am not talking about those things that come in a plastic tube that you cut the end of of btw. I am talking about a fruity, sugary, homemade popsicle... yum.
First, you will need popsicle molds. They aren't that expensive, $10-15 will buy you the perfect set. I have this set that I ordered from Amazon, it's by Tovolo, I can't give it enough rave reviews.
This one would be awesome with twisted popsicles...
Ahh I am in love with these ring pops.. how cute... especially for kids!
Raspberry Surprise Popsicles
1/2 frozen clementines, slightly
1 cup frozen raspberries, slightly thawed
1. Place your fruit into a food processor, blend until smooth with no visible pieces of fruit.
2. Pour your fruit blend into your popsicle molds leaving about 1/2-3/4 inch in the top to allow for the mixture to expand.
3. Freeze for at least 6-8 hours.
*Feel free to use fresh fruit - I just happened to only have frozen - you can also substitute oranges for clementines*
This recipe makes 2 popsicles - this means each one counts as 1+ servings of fruit :) If 2 spots in your popsicle mold aren't filled with remnants of an icy pudding popsicle disaster, then by all means double this recipe. See, I told you loving fruit wasn't so bad....
What's your favorite popsicle flavor? Have you ever made homemade popsicles?
