{Allergy-Friendly} Fruit Ice Popsicles

It’s here, the unofficial end of Summer.  (Sigh.)  The kids are (mostly) back to school and the barbecues will be in full force this weekend.  Before getting back into the swing of things don’t forget to take some time this weekend to soak up the last of the long summer days and nights.  

We have been making these fruit popsicles all summer with another batch going into the freezer today; I cannot think of a better way to celebrate the summer than with these delicious and easy-to-make fruit popsicles.

I am a big fan of homemade desserts including ice cream and popsicles.  I love that you can control the ingredients and never really mess up when you combine different fruits together for these tasty treats.  And with food allergies finding safe frozen treats isn’t so easy, these are “top 8” free and you can control what fruits to add based on any other allergies.

I purchased these ice cream cone molds at HomeGoods (also available to purchase on Amazon) and we have been getting much use out of them this summer for both popsicles and ice cream.  You can use any kind of popsicle molds you have on hand or you can also fill little cups with the mixture to make spoonable water ice, whatever you prefer.

I use my Vitamix for these which makes the process super simple.  Any blender will work of course.  I basically combine all ingredients and mix away.   And my secret to making them creamier is using a frozen banana in the mixture!

While mixing I stop and tamper down the mixture frequently.  After a few minutes it becomes the correct consistency to place into the molds.

I then spoon into the molds and freeze!

I love that making these is faster then making a trip to the grocery store, and more healthy of course with no added refined sugar.  You can control the ingredients as you like and add in veggies too.  I usually toss in whatever is in the fridge or freezer and they always turn out delicious.  You can substitute the apple juice for your favorite milk as well for an even more creamier option.
