One of the best things about summer is all the fresh, seasonal produce! These homemade ice pops are full of sweet summer fruit and lots of great vitamins too. The combination of kiwis, peaches, and strawberries provides plenty of Vitamin A, C, and D, plus potassium, folate, and fiber!
2 cups strawberries, washed and hulled
2 cups sliced peaches
6 medium kiwi, peeled and chopped
honey to taste, if desired
Pure strawberries in a blender. Add a squeeze of honey for extra sweetness if desired. Divide evenly among 6 large popsicle molds. Each mold should be about 1/3 full. Rinse your blender, then pure the peaches, adding a squeeze of honey if desired. S-l-o-w-l-y pour peaches on top of strawberries. If you do it too quickly, they will bleed together. I bet you can guess the next step ... Rinse your blender, then pure the kiwi adding a squeeze of honey if desired. Pour the kiwi on top of the peaches. Add your ice pop stick and freeze. Watch your kids eat them faster than they can melt!
TIP: To loosen the ice pops from the mold, run under hot water for a few seconds. The ice pops should then slide out easily.
