Love summer desserts, but it's too hot outside to heat up the oven and start baking? On days like these, I just use a blender and freezer instead! Fruit ice pops are one of those easy-to-make, healthy but delicious summer desserts I always love to enjoy. Healthy, but delicious! Here are two quick and easy recipes:


1) Banana And Strawberry Fruit Ice Pops


A classic in our home, and I believe the easiest fruit pops, too! To make banana and strawberry fruit pops, you'll only need three ingredients:

  • bananas, cut in slices
  • a large cup of frozen strawberries
  • a drizzle of lemon juice


INSTRUCTIONS:
Toss in the blender, mix and pour into ice pop molds. Refrigerate for a few hours. Enjoy!

A totally easy way to make a summer dessert, and a no-fail recipe for kids to enjoy! The above recipe is dairy free, thus also safe for those kids who need to stay away from dairy products.

2) Orange And Yogurt Ice Pops


It is a variation of the above recipe, only a bit less sweet. The mix of citrus and yogurt  - a top taste for a hot summer day, when you're just back from the beach!

INGREDIENTS:
orange
a spoonful of brown sugar or honey
yogurt (plain or vanilla)


INSTRUCTIONS:

Peel and slice an orange, toss in the blender, add honey, mix and pour into ice pop molds, to fill half of the mold. Pour yogurt over that. Refrigerate for a few hours.

In our home, we kids have a blast when they are allowed to make mixed versions - that is, adding a bit of each mixture to each single ice pops mold. Tons of fun!

No Ice Pop Mold? No Problem!

Even if you have no ice pop molds at hand, this shouldn't stop you. There's tons of alternatives for molds, like small paper or plastic cups, tiny baking tins, small yogurt containers, or ice cube trays. 


Can't wait for fruit pops to freeze? Solution!


Especially with toddlers, it can sometimes feel so long to wait until the pops freeze! Here's a quick tip, one of the best shortcuts for me: use the ingredients that have already been frozen, and then you won't need to wait at all - blend and toss in small cups, and enjoy!

We do that quite often, and kids find it awesome, too! We used blueberries for this one.

  1. Yum! I love these ideas! The only blended fruit popsicle I've ever tried making was straight-up watermelon, which was delicious. I tend to do striped yogurt popsicles or juice (with or without fruit chunks in it): http://www.cucicucicoo.com/2015/08/how-to-make-striped-popsicles-and-fruit-popsicles/ But I will have to try blending fruit, also because we have a TON of it right now! :) Lisa
