08 Jul Homemade Fruit Popsicles
There is nothing better on a Sunday summer evening than homemade popsicles, I can attest to that! What started off as a simple number on a list ended up as a delicious event that I hope to repeat every week. Give these popsicles a shot, all it takes is thinking ahead by a few hours.
This recipe is super flexible. You can change out the juice and fruit for whatever you want. Think of the possibilities, there are dozens! I will post all the new combinations I come up with if you do! Comment on here or email me the recipes you try!
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup water
- 2 cups 100% juice (I used 1 1/4 cup orange juice and 3/4 cup cranberry juice)
- sliced fruit** (I used 2 sliced kiwis and 1 sliced peach)
Boil the water, and dissolve the sugar inside. Place your chopped fruits into your popsicle molds. Add this simple syrup to the juices, then pour into the molds. Make sure all the bubbles are out by stirring or tapping the top of the molds. Place in the freezer, and the popsicles should freeze in a few hours. To be careful, let them sit overnight.
**Next time I make the popsicles, I will use MUCH more fruit, so I can fill the molds almost full of fruit and THEN add the liquid. The frozen fruit was much tastier and prettier, so I wish I had more of it!
