For the past several weeks I have been trying out a number of great popsicle recipes. This popsicle has no sugar in it, it is 100% fruit. I was curious to see if my kids would like them, and it turns out that they LOVED them.
You can use any kind of fresh fruit to make these popsicles. Here are some possibilities:
- Fruit juice
These popsicles worked really well in some small popsicle molds I found at Walmart for .99. If you like larger popsicles, you can find some great popsicle molds at The Prepared Pantry.
To prepare these popsicles, chop up the fruit into small pieces. Place the fruit pieces in the popsicle molds and add a tablespoon of fruit juice (apple juice, orange juice, etc.) into each mold to hold the fruit together. I didn't have any juice on hand but found a can of crushed pineapple in the cupboard. The crushed pineapple worked great with the other fruit, and I poured the juice from the can into the popsicle molds.
I wasn't sure what my children were going to think about these no-sugar popsicle treats. They loved them, and I am happy to let them snack on them knowing they are eating lots of healthy fruit while enjoying a summertime snack.
To serve, hold the popsicle mold under warm running water until the popsicle slides out.
