My kids love popsicles in all of their melting, dripping, sweet-tasting glory. I usually buy the all-fruit varieties so that my children get some vitamins while slurping their “‘cicles.” Now and again we decide to make our own. It’s a fun, creative, kid-friendly activity; we get to explore different flavor combinations; and I know first-hand how nutritious the ingredients are.
Fresh Fruit Popsicles
You could take your favorite fruit juice, add lemon juice, and toss in whatever fresh fruit you happen to have on hand. Here’s the combination I tried:
1 cup apple juice
¼ cup lemon juice
1 cup bite-sized pieces of fresh strawberries, peaches, and grapes
Mix ingredients together and freeze in popsicle molds.
