The perfect healthy, frozen treat Raspberry and Kiwi Ice Pops!
With summer comes the heat. Instead of cooling down with a bunch of ice cold treats that are full of extra sugar and junk, keep it simple. With a little bit of pureed fruit, ice pop molds, and a bit of time you will be enjoying these deliciously cool raspberry and kiwi ice pops!
Directions for these super simple raspberry and kiwi ice pops:
For the Raspberry:
- 1 cup raspberries (fresh is best, but frozen works fine too!)
- 2 Tbsp lemon juice
If you are using fresh raspberries, you do not need much of the lemon juice. Use a little lemon juice to add some flavor to the raspberry and kiwi ice pop. Blend the berries and lemon in a blender until smooth. Fill each ice pop compartment 2/3 of the way full, leaving room for the kiwi.
Place the lid on the ice pop, and let the raspberry freeze for about an hour.
After an hour, proceed to the next step.
For the Kiwi:
- 2 Kiwis, peeled and diced
Blend until smooth. Once the first layer is slightly frozen add the kiwi layer. Top with the lids and put back in the freezer for a couple of hours.
With just 3 ingredients, a few hours, and an ice pop mold you can make these naturally sugar free raspberry and kiwi ice pops. The link I have provided for the ice pop molds have a few options to choose from. You can get a mold that is shaped like a regular ice pop, or you can get a smaller version, one that looks like a fish, or ice pops that come out in the shape of astronauts and space shuttles.
I love having these on hand for the kids. They are free of any added sugar, have zero food dye, and are as close to the source as you can get. Make a batch or two at night and they will be ready for the next day. These would also work really well for a teething tot!
You could also make different varieties of ice pops. Try out different fruits that are in season like strawberries, blueberries, and even watermelon. Let your kids pick out their favorite fruit. Get them involved and have them help you wash the fruit and put everything together. These raspberry and kiwi ice pops are so easy to make. The hardest part is waiting for them to freeze!
