Depending on size of mold, makes 6 ice pops
- 1/4 cup diced kiwi
- 1/4 cup diced peaches
- 1/4 cup blueberries, cut in halves
- 1/4 cup raspberries
- 1/4 cup diced strawberries
- 1/4 cup fresh pineapple juice or orange juice
Toss cut fruit together in a bowl and then spoon into popsicle molds. Pour enough juice so it comes slightly below each rim. (Pops will expand a little as they freeze.) If you’re using paper cups, cover with aluminum foil (to hold sticks in place). Insert Popsicle sticks. Place on a tray in the freezer for 5 hours or overnight. Run under warm water for a few seconds to release pops from their molds. Enjoy!
Ice Pop Molds
When making ice pops at home, you will need a container or mold to hold the liquid while it freezes and a stick to hold your frozen treat while you eat it!
- Homemade Molds: Freeze liquid in a small paper cup with a wood popsicle stick.
- Store Bought Molds: Many shapes and sizes to choose from including rocket ships!
Some store bought molds (like Zoku) even come with their own storage container.
Shop Local: Stock on Hope Street in Providence carries a variety of ice pop molds. StockPVD.com
Folks have been enjoying frozen syrupy treats since as far back as Ancient Roman times but it was not until 1905, when Frank Epperson, an 11-year-old boy from California, discovered the fun of eating this treat on a stick. He accidentally left a glass filled with water, powdered soda mix and a wooden stirring stick outside overnight, and it froze. Voila-the Popsicle was born!
