We've been in a bit of a heatwave for the past week or so and I'm completely over it at this point. We don't have central air at our house, so we're always looking for way to keep cool. The boys have been super interested in making homemade ice cream and ice pops this summer.
I want to be able to make ice pops with the kids that are healthy, but they will still love and actually want to eat.
The best part is you can customize these fruity ice pops with whatever fruit you happen to have on hand.
For our fruit ice pops that we made this time, we used banana, frozen raspberries, and grapes.
The boys added fruit into our ice pop mold in whatever order they wanted. I love that they're able to personalize their ice pops.
Once the molds were full of fruit, we filled the molds with Juicy Juice 100% juice! We chose Fruit Punch, but any of their 100% juice will work great. Not adding any additional sugar is a big win for us!
We've made a lot of frozen treats with the kids, but these are by far the easiest! They're ready to put in the freezer in under 5 minutes.
Of course, you do need to wait a few hours for the ice pops to freeze, but it's totally worth it.
And, there's no shame in serving these ice pops for breakfast! After all, they're just fruit and 100% fruit juice!
Talk about a guilt-free treat!
The kids really loved the creaminess of the bananas in their ice pops!
- 1 large banana, sliced
- handful of grapes, sliced in half
- ½ cup frozen berries
- 2 cups of Juicy Juice 100% juice (about 2.5 (6.75 oz) boxes)
- Place fruit inside ice pop molds until full.
- Fill molds almost to top with juice.
- Freeze at least 4 hours.
