Strawberry, Pear and Lime Ice Pops
These bright and inviting frozen ice pops will grab any kid’s attention, but who’s kidding whom? The kid in all of us couldn’t wait to bite into these refreshing icy treats; a perfect way to stay cool on a hot day
12 x 2
60 g ice pop molds and sticks
such as D’Anjou, cored and halved
3 ml grated lime zest
45 ml lime juice
50 ml granulated sugar or coconut sugar
550 ml frozen strawberries
Add pears, lime zest, lime juice, sugar, strawberries and salt to the tall cup. Twist the extractor blade onto the cup to seal. Turn the cup upside down and press and turn cup into the power base for 40 seconds, or until smooth.
Remove the cup from the power base and twist off the extractor blade. Pour mixture into ice pop molds, cover and insert sticks. Freeze for 4 hours or until solid. Quickly dip molds into hot water to release pops.
Small (about 2 oz/60 g) paper or plastic cups can be used in place of the molds. Leftover popsicle can be frozen for up to 7 days. 1 fresh lime will yield about 1/4 cup (50 mL)
OPTIONAL NUTRITION BOOSTER
