Instructions

Tip number one

My tip is to use frozen fruits, at least for the bottom layers. This way you simplify your job incredibly. If you have fresh fruits only, you have to layer each part separately. Meaning, place the first layer and freeze to continue. Freeze partly only, so you can still place the stick of popsicle at the end.

This is how I do it.
Place black fruits in a blender with juice from ½ of orange. Blend until smooth. Put 1 teaspoon of the black mix into the popsicles.
Repeat the same with the red fruits. Depending on what fruits you have, use the orange juice.
I used only splash of it for red ones (as they were juicy enough). Place 1 teaspoon of each into popsicles.
In a hand blender mix the banana with splash of orange juice. Top the popsicles and place the sticks on them. Freeze them until serving. Done.

Makes 6 popsicles.

Tip number two

For this very combination it doesn’t matter if you have fresh or frozen parts of the fruits. I used fresh only.
First, prepare the top layer. Place all apricots and banana into a hand blender. Blend into a nice porridge texture and taste. I chose sweet banana in combination of sour sweet apricots. Therefore, no extras needed.
Spoon 2 tablespoons of the mix into your popsicle forms and continue.

Place in a hand blender kiwis with 1 tablespoon of honey. Blend to a smooth mixture and spoon onto apricot-banana mix.

Next, blend slices of melon and finish the popsicles with the juice from it. Place the sticks in and let it freeze for at least 3-4 hours. Done.

Makes 6 popsicles.

No rocket science there, always try to mix fresh fruits your local store offers at the time. Once I skipped the apricots and the banana. Therefore, I mixed 2 ripe kiwis, 1/2 small candaloupe and 1 tablespoon of honey. Delicious!

Tip number three

In a hand blend place nectarines and 1 tablespoon of honey. Blend until smooth and then, pour in 1/2 cup of yoghurt. Mix and taste.
Mold the mixture into 4 medium popsicle forms. Freeze for couple of hours and serve.
