I used to eat fruit popsicles, but nothing close to these. Today I ate three of them. Yes, I didn’t make a typo, I ate three of these popsicles.
I’ve been thinking like “why hadn’t I discovered them before?”
I admit that other than the great taste, I love the healthy aspects of this delicacy. No sugar at all and only fresh fruit. If it was sweetened, I’d control myself…but why should I avoid eating another fruit (small) portion?
I used kiwi, pineapple, blueberies, strawberries and peaches. I intend to try other flavors, even if this one is just perfect. I used the oranges I had home that are very sweet as it’s final season and I can only repeat myself that I am in love with this Summer treat ;-D.
I found this recipe on Nami’s Just One Cook Book blog. I prepared it immediately, just the time to go to the market to buy the fruits. I didn’t even have popsicle molds nor sticks – I used plastic glasses and barbecue sticks!
Just wash and cut the fruit in small pieces and wash the blueberries. Place them into the molds/glasses and fill them with orange juice until cover the fruit pieces. Place the sticks in the middle, sticking into a hard fruit. Otherwise, a good trick to place it in the middle is to cover the mold/glass with plastic wrap and make a hole in the middle where to place the stick (the plastic wrap will hold it in the middle of the popsicle). Freeze until these fruit popsicles solidify. Then just refresh yourself and delight your taste.
