Fresh Orange Strawberry Popsicles

Fresh Fruit Popsicle

My son and I have been experimenting with homemade popsicles again and we discovered another yummy combination........ pureed strawberries and fresh orange juice!

Here's the recipe:

Fresh Orange Strawberry Popsicles

Ingredients:
4 oranges
8-10 strawberries
2 Tbsp sugar

Directions: 
Juice the oranges and strain the juice.  Add 1 Tbsp sugar and mix well. Set aside in a refrigerator.

Wash strawberries and pick off stems.  Puree them in a blender or food processor.  Blend in 1 Tbsp sugar.

Pour strawberry puree into popsicle molds to fill the bottom half of the molds.  Place in freezer for about 1 hour.  Take out popsicle molds and pour orange juice mixture to fill the molds.  Place popsicle sticks or popsicle mold handles into the molds and freeze for an additional 2 hours.  

Orange Strawberry Juice Popsicles

Run the molds under hot water for about 30 seconds to get the popsicles out of the molds.  Then all that's left to do is to sit outside on the back porch and enjoy them!

  1. Great idea. When I read this I had a flashback to my childhood when my mother would freeze fruit cocktail in Dixie cups with a stick. We thought they were grand fun. Alas, when I think of this now, I realize most (although not all) canned fruit has little vitamin content left. But there's something really fun about eating a common food frozen... Kept us quiet and happy for a while anyway.
