What could be more fun than a bright striped rocket popsicle?
I am lucky to have children who eat and try most things. Even though they are far from picky eaters it’s always good to find recipes that give them extra helpings of fruit and vegetables and this is one of those recipes. Most commercially produced fruit Popsicles are made of lots of sugary water dyed bright colors – no fruit in sight and packed full of those dreaded e numbers – Rémy reacts particularly badly to blue dye so we try to avoid it at all times. He decided that these rockets were the perfect sword…
They are super easy to make – I used Naked fruit juice from the supermarket – Mighty Mango, Blue Machine and Green Machine – but you can also make up fruit smoothies from scratch. However, since you don’t need that much it seemed like a lot of work – plus the juices are all natural and 100% juice. With a little planning ahead you’ll be ready for blast off and that extra serving or two of fruit in no time.
Fruit Popsicle How To:
1 Blue Machine Naked Juice
1 Might Mango Naked Juice
1 Green Machine Naked Juice
12 small pieces of kiwi
6 Rocket Pop molds
1. Place a couple of blueberries in the bottom of each rocket pop mold and add a layer of the blueberry juice – 1/3 of the way up the mold. Freeze until solid, about 30 minutes.
2. Place a couple of raspberries on top of the frozen blueberry layer and add the mighty mango juice up to 2/3 of the way up the mold. Freeze until solid, about 40 minutes.
3. Place a couple of kiwi pieces in the top of the mold and add the green juice to almost to the top of the mold, you need to leave about 1/4 inch. Place the lid on top – this becomes the holder/stick for the Popsicle. Return to the freezer until completely frozen, at least 2 hours.
4. Remove the cover by running under hot water for a few seconds and enjoy!
