Rainbow Fruit Popsicles and Other Frozen Delights

I am POPPING in to quickly share some of my favorite popsicle recipes (so far)! Last year I got this cool popsicle mold late in the summer, so I didn’t have too long to experiment before the air became as cold as these treats, but here are my favorite 4 recipes I came up with! (Warning, I take bad photos, and don’t have the focus abilities to learn to do it right, so bear with me! Haha!)

This one was by far the most delicious and impressive-looking:

1063601_4644909175677_1498598045_nI just used homemade fruit purees and layered them in either the popsicle tray, or a  silicone freezer tray that came with my Baby Bullet- I thought that made such cute popsicles! For the fruit purees, I just took strawberries, oranges, orange juice, kiwis, and blueberries, and blended up small amounts of each, with a bit of water, to get a pourable consistency.

Then I poured in the first color, popped it in the freezer for 20 minutes, inserted the popsicle stick, and added the next color! I put that in the freezer for 20 minutes, and repeated the process for all the layers until it was all a magical frozen mass.

In order to keep the sticks upright in the baby bullet container, I just made a ‘lid’ out of tin foil, and pushed the sticks through the top!

It took a little bit of time and planning, but was worth it for this cool rainbow effect!

The NEXT awesome popsicle creation I came up with were these delish Root Beer Float Popsicles:

Here is another popsicle idea that was a hit with the kids:

Ohmagosh, this next one is SO GOOD though:

I took equal parts of sweetened coconut milk (You could use unsweetened and add honey or stevia if you roll like that) and orange juice, then I added a few drops of orange extract and some vanilla extract. I stuck some mandarine orange slices in there too, but it was a bit weird, though the kids liked it!

I’m sure I will be creating more and better popsicle recipes soon, so check back for more!

Thanks for reading! Enjoy your ‘popsicolds’ as my kids call them 😉

PS. I don’t get to blogging too much with all these kids crawling on my face etc constantly, so please feel free to visit me on other internet outlets that require less focus, such as
