Fruit Popsicles 

Raise your hand if you love Popsicles. Yep, that's what we thought. Easy to make and fun to eat, these frozen treats are a summer staple. This recipe makes colorful, layered pops that are perfect for keeping cool when the weather gets hot. Tip: Whip these up right before bedtime, and they'll be frozen by morning.

Materials

  • blender
  • half of a seedless watermelon, cubed
  • fine-mesh strainer (optional)
  • 1 small bowl
  • 1 mango, cubed
  • 1 kiwi, peeled and cut into roughly 1/4-inch slices
  • Popsicle molds and sticks (this recipe makes about 8 Popsicles)

instructions

  1. Load the blender with the cubed watermelon and purée until the fruit is smooth.
  2. If you notice any errant seeds or chunks in the purée, you can run it through a fine-mesh strainer as you transfer the watermelon juice to your bowl.
  3. Rinse out the blender, then purée the mango until smooth.
  4. Fill the Popsicle molds about a quarter of the way with the mango purée. Slide a slice of kiwi into each mold, then fill the rest of the way with the watermelon juice. Insert the Popsicle sticks.
  5. Transfer the Popsicle molds to the freezer for six to eight hours.
  6. To serve, run the Popsicle molds under warm water for a few seconds. Then pull each Popsicle out to eat.
