fruit salad ice pops

fruit ice pops

These "fruit salad" ice pops were so fun to make!  We got the idea from this video (via Everyday Food).  We had been wanting to make these since last summer, but only just now got around to it for the popsicle party.

We made these the morning of (they take 6 hours to freeze) and the children were highly involved.  I cut up the fruit and they pushed the pieces down into the popsicle molds.  You can see that they are lovely, even without any special arrangement or skill whatsoever.  We used kiwi, fresh pineapple, and strawberries.  The ice is white grape juice.  They were surprisingly yummy and very popular at the party (although some kids didn't finish theirs).  We also had regular popsicles.  These were just for the fun of making them and because they are so pretty. 

It was so fun unmolding pop after pop at the party and to see how each one turned out.  Unfortunately I was handing them out, so unable to photograph more of them.  They were all pretty, though.  I'd love to try these with more and different fruits, especially blueberries, although I'll always use the kiwis because they are just so gorgeous.

I really love these! They look complicated, so I was surprised to see how easy they were to make. I think I need to try them. I bet mango would be tasty in them too. Are you still in full blown summer mode or does it start to feel more "fallish" soon? I think I might try to sneak these in before it is time for pumpkin pie! Hope you are having a good week.

I'll have to remember this for next summer--getting a bit too cold for popsicles this year (though maybe we could freeze them outside in the winter, and pretend we're on a tropical vacation).

Oh, you're real! You're real!! I, too, am a working Mom who loves the "at home" scene (baking, loving, snuggling, art, etc.). It is so good to see a blog from someone who is in the same boat. Thank you for your honesty about finances and life in general. Have a wonderful day!
