Homemade Fruit Bar Popsicles

Summer is in full swing in our house. The kids are on summer break, and we are enjoying many pool days. Homemade fruit bar popsicles make a great cool down summer treat while making sure you have zero food waste.

Homemade Fruit Bar Popsicles

 We had some leftover fruit that I was going to use to make a Memorial Day charcuterie board, but I was too tired that weekend. We simply just did too much and overextended ourselves. So, I brought just the fruit to the pool with family, but not everyone was a fan of the blueberries and raspberries. I do not like food waste and did not want it to go to waste. So, I decided to create these fruit bar popsicles. I searched that internet for fruit smoothie recipes and then altered the recipe to fit my needs. 

Here's What I Used:

About 3 cups of fresh fruit

1 cup water

6 oz. vanilla yogurt

silicone popsicle molds

And here's what you do:

Clean your fruit, make sure all stems are off. We used strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries. Some were a little mushy, but not too mushy. Throw all ingredients in the blender and then once well blended, pour into silicone popsicle mold. Put in freezer for about 4 hours. Makes about 9 popsicles depending on mold you used. I actually used the silicone molds from a previous craft, and I couldn't find my popsicle sticks, so I had no sticks. But what I ended up doing was taking lollipops and putting them in the middle of the popsicle. My hubby and kids thought it was so smart and yummy.

You can add honey to make it sweeter if you would like. You can change up the type of liquid you use and even the yogurt. This was simple and what I had on hand. I started with a smoothie recipe knowing I would have to use more liquid, but I altered it more than expected and am sharing because I was so happy with the results.

Have you ever made popsicles? What is your favorite summer treat?
