The weather forecast calls for 80+ degrees for the next week or so, and make-your-own ice pops seems like a perfect topic for parents everywhere.  This recipe comes from a magazine published by BJ’s Wholesale Club. They’re fun to make with your kids, and as they are little more than pureed fruit, you can feel good about letting them enjoy an ice pop at any time.

Blend 3 cups cut-up fresh fruit, 1 tbsp. of sugar, and 1 tsp. of lemon juice

until smooth.

Pour into 4 or 5 oz. dixie cups, insert popsicle sticks into center,

and freeze on a flat surface for three hours, or until firm.

These can really be made with any variation of fruits, and are a great way expose your kids to some new flavors they wouldn’t normal try.  To find out what’s new in our kitchen, stop by, or become a fan on Facebook.  Happy cooking!
