Fruit salad ice pops with ‘grown ups’ version included

There’s nothing I love more than a dish that looks as good as it tastes. This is an easy go to that is healthy as well. My little sister approves of it and she has a very high standard.

Ingredients

  • Any type of fruit that you want however I recommend citrusy fruits. If you want to use fruits like banana then I would recommend a smoothie pop. I will post a recipe for these types
  • White grape juice or coconut water
  • For the grown up version: white wine, rose or bubbly

Mise en place*

  1. Cut the fruit into slices. This is how the ice pops look so pretty.

Where the magic happens

 

  1. Fill the molds with the fruit. Make sure it’s packed in their firmly!
  2. Fill with the liquid of choice.
  3. Tap the molds so that all the air bubbles are released.
  4. Don’t fill to the top because as we once learned in science class: ice expands.
  5. Freeze for at least 6 hours or overnight.

 

*Mise en place is a term used in cooking which when translated means “putting in place.” These are all the preparations that are done before cooking can take place. I put this in a different section because not only will it save you time and stress, but it helps in decreasing mistakes during cooking.
