Frozen Fruit Pops

4 hours to freeze Serves: 12

It is a tasty, healthful and inexpensive way to take advantage of whatever fruit is seasonally available. Use single fruits or combine several for special "house blends."

Blender or Food Processor

  • 1 ripe honeydew melon
  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 2 pints ripe strawberries
  • 1/4 cup honey or sugar

1. Help children peel, seed, and cut fruit into chunks. Put fruit and honey or sugar in blender in small batches and purée. (Pops will taste less sweet when they are frozen. )

2. Ladle the purée into popsicle molds and freeze for at least 4 hours or until frozen.

3. Purée can be frozen in plastic ice cube trays. Poke popsicle sticks into place when the pops are almost frozen so that the sticks will stay upright.
