Homemade Popsicles

The trick to homemade Popsicles is to determine the amount each Popsicle mold holds and then figure out how much liquid you're going to need to fill all your molds. For example, each of my Popsicle molds hold 1/3 cup so I need 2 cups to fill my six molds. With this, you can then begin to think creatively about what kind of Popsicles you are going to make. Be sure and also make room in your freezer for the molds.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup peaches and their juice cut up
  • 1/2 cup berries
  • 1/2 mango diced
  • Zest of 1 lime
  • 1/2 cup plain organic yogurt
  • 1-2  Tablespoons honey or sugar or more to taste

Instructions

  1. Place all the ingredients in the blender or food processor and puree until smooth. Depending on the sweetness of the fruit, taste the puree to see if it needs a little honey or sugar. If it needs it, add 1 Tablespoon honey or sugar and taste again. Add another Tablespoon if desired. Puree the mixture for another 30 seconds to ensure everything is combined.
  2. Carefully pour the liquid in each popsicle mold until it's about 3/4 full, set the sticks in place and put the molds in the freezer for 3-4 hours or until firmly set.
  3. To remove pops, squeeze the sides of the mold, twisting them slightly, to dislodge popsicle. If necessary, rinse the outside of the mold with hot water.
