Strawberry-Blueberry Ice Pops

I have been confused lately due to the unusually warm weather we’ve been having here on the east coast. The plus side is going outside with few layers and not feeling cold. On a more negative note, my brain tells me that I don’t have work and that it is already summer. (This is not good since I still have 7 more weeks of school).

In any case, what better way to cool off than with fresh fruit ice pops? I decided to use strawberries and blueberries because that’s what was in my fridge. I put roughly 2 1/2 cups of blueberries and 8 strawberries in a blender with 1/4 cup of orange juice (I used enough orange juice so my blended fruit mixture would be easy enough to pour out of the blender). I did not add any sugar because I like things on the sour side, but I would definitely recommend sugar if you want your ice pops on the sweeter side.

I poured the blended fruit into an ice cube tray, covered the tray with plastic wrap, and put popsicle sticks in each ice cube slot. (I used the plastic wrap so that the popsicle sticks would stay in place. At first, I had trouble putting the popsicle sticks in the plastic wrap, so I used a toothpick to poke a hole in the plastic wrap. With much less effort than my first attempt, I successfully placed the popsicle sticks in each slot).

I put the ice cube tray in the freezer for a few hours, and voilà, homemade strawberry-bluerry ice pops. Perfect for a hot spring day. I dedicate this post to my source of inspiration, global warming.

    I think I am going to try this. Though I am totally against global warming.

      It’s super easy, healthy, and tastes great too! (And for the record, I am against global warming too).

    I’m definitely going to try these this week! I keep buying popsicles to combat the TX heat. These are going to be perfect!
