Homemade IcePops

all things yummyI know this post is a little late but I eat ice pops all year long & if you don’t well now you’ll be ready to make these next spring. They were so simple to make it was crazy.  My friend & I went to Stop & Shop to buy the ice pop holders & that was the hardest part haha.

IMG_7789Ingredients: 2 cups & tbsp water_ 5 tbsp granulated sugar_12 oz mango peeled,_12 oz fresh strawberries_10 oz kiwis_crystal light packet (if you don’t know oz just use your head & think about how much you think you can get out of each)

To make these simply boil the water & sugar to make a simple syrup. If you think you will want your ice pops to be sweeter add more sugar. Once the sugar is dissolved take take it off the heat & let sit. With the fruit you have decided you would like to use, we used raspberries, mango & kiwi peel & then puree them each separately in a blender or if you have a magic bullet. Then divide the simple syrup equally into each bowl of the puree fruits you have & mix. If you have time you should add one flavor into the mold & freeze for about 45 minutes to an hour. Add the next flavor freeze for 20 minutes & then the final flavor & freeze til completely frozen & ready to be eatten. If you don’t feel like waiting that long (trust me I know I get impatient a lot) then add the thickest puree first then the next thickest pureed flavor & then add the final flavor & freeze.  If they are all the same thickness they might run into each other & not look as pretty but they will taste as yummy.

We also made another type of ice pops where we used crystal light packets.  We used lemonade flavored ones and strawberry caffeine ones.  We made them as you normally would but with less water to make them stronger.  Then we simply put them into the mold threw & threw a few blueberries in. In a few we used some raspberry puree at the bottom & then put the strawberry packet water on top.IMG_7830 all things yummy
