Summer is almost here, the weather is warm, and we all need something to cool off from the afternoon heat. Bring on the popsicles! We like to make our own because not only does it give us something to do, but we get to choose what goes in them. No processed corn syrup, gobs of sugar or food coloring here. Instead we chose a rainbow of fruit all held together with some homemade lemonade. They turned out so beautiful and delicious and all natural that I can feel great about giving these to my kids.
Washing the fruit
Rainbow Fruit Popsicles
3 strawberries cut into chunks
1 apricot, cut into small chunks
1 nectarine, cut into small chunks
1 kiwi, cut into small chunks, leaving the seeded center part out
a handful of blueberries
6 purple grapes, cut into chunks
1 – 2 tablespoons agave syrup
1 cup of water
6 popsicle molds
Wash and cut up the fruit, except the lemon. Set aside. Make the lemonade by squeezing the juice from the lemon and adding agave syrup and water. We like ours watered down and not too sweet so the natural fruit flavors really come out. Set up the popsicle molds and begin to layer the fruit. Strawberries, then apricot, nectarine, kiwi, blueberries and finally grapes. Top with the lemonade and place in the freezer for about 2 hours. Serves 6.
