Fresh Fruit Ice Pops
You’re never too old to enjoy an ice pop. You are, however, past the age when it’s socially acceptable to walk around with your lips stained a shade of purple that doesn’t exist in the natural world. Skip those artificially flavored pops and make your own using fresh fruit (in just three steps, no less).
4 cups fresh fruit (such as peaches, raspberries or blueberries), chopped if necessary
Juice of 1 lemon
¼ cup agave
1. In a blender, puree all ingredients until smooth. If the mixture is too thick, add water 1 tablespoon at a time until the mixture is smooth.
2. Pour the mixture into an ice-pop mold, filling within ¼ inch of the top of the mold. Place an ice-pop stick into the center of each individual mold and then transfer to the freezer.
3. Freeze until solid, at least 2½ hours, and up to overnight. Run the outside of the mold under warm water to unmold the ice pops. The pops will keep, frozen, for up to two weeks.
