fruity and frosty popsicles


What a fabulously easy and delicious popsicle recipe this is!  Fruity and Frosty Popsicles use sweet fruit nectars as the fruity and frosty popsicle ingredientsbase for a simple and fast popsicle recipe.

Then adding any type of fruit you like, ups both the nutritional and yum factors!

This particular recipe uses either mango or strawberry-banana nectar.  You can usually find it in the Latin American/Mexican ethnic section of your grocers in pop-top cans. 

The fabulous thing about using fruit nectars is that they contain most of the sweetness necessary for your Fruity and Frosty Popsicles.

I did add some honey to the recipe though, as some fruits aren’t as sweet as we would like, right?

Fruit nectars are also a bit thicker than most fruit juices, so that makes them perfectly suited to use as a popsicle base.

And when you add some mashed banana to the mixture, that extra thickness helps suspend pieces of fruit in the pops without all sinking to the bottom.

Plus, you’ve got to consider the amount of air inside the ingredients and how to keep your pops from being hard slabs of ice.

For example, smoothies have lots of air whipped inside, so you need to leave more room in the mold for expansion. And alcohol freezes at much lower temperatures than other ingredients, so recipes need to be adjusted accordingly.

So you can see, there’s a little more to making fabulous popsicles than just pouring liquid into a mold.

That’s exactly why I created my “Pop Primer”.  It’s a “cheat-sheet” that will make sure you know exactly how to work with any ingredients you want to make pops with.
