Homemade Popsicle / Otter Pops

I found on Amazon the most amazing silicone Otter-Pop molds. The also have plastic disposable bags. They also have silicone Popsicle molds. You can also use tiny paper cups and wooden popsicle sticks. These are so great for fruit that needs being to be used, and a great way to get kids to eat some fruit. You could also add some protein powder. Use your imitation and have fun with them. I didn’t love the texture or look of bananas or applesauce. I did love watermelon, strawberries, kiwi, raspberries, peaches, or mangos. These are fun for kids to help you make them. The sugar keeps them from turning too hard to eat, think ice cubes and how hard they are. I use less sugar for my grandson who does not like sugar. (I know, how does that happen?)

Homemade Popsicle / Otter Pops

2 ½ Cups fruit of choice

6 Tablespoons honey or sugar (can use less)

1 cup water or fruit juice

½ Cup yogurt, optional

Add the ingredients into a blender and process until smooth. Taste and adjust sugar level. Stir until the sugar is dissolved. Pour into the molds. Using a funnel helps a lot, put your finger over the end as you go to the next mold.

Freeze until firm, about 12 hours.

When ready to serve hold the mold in your hand for a bit until they slide out.

Combinations I love

Lemonade / Raspberries

½ Cup Orange Juice + ½ Cup water / Strawberries

½ Cup Orange Juice + ½ Cup water / Mangos

Grape Juice + ½ Cup water

Watermelon / ½ cup sprite and no yogurt

Blueberries / lemonade (can leave the blueberries whole)

Kiwi / Lemonade (can leave the kiwi whole slices)

Pineapple juice / raspberries

Apple Juice / strawberries

*Gluten Free and can be dairy free without the yogurt.
