Popsicles

We've had a reprieve from the extreme heat for a week but it's returning - starting tomorrow temps are to be over 100 for at least the next 10 days, a couple days showing 107-110 - yikes. We're under a Red Flag Warning for fire danger - there's always fire danger but with the extreme hot and the windy conditions fires could be explosive........I hate fire season........

So, today after being excused from jury service for the day I stopped by the store and bought some popsicle molds. I cut up kiwi, a white peach, strawberries and added some blueberries to the mix. A friend  recently sent me a link to how to make these, I think it was off Martha Stewart's website but don't quote me on that.

I stuffed the molds with fruit. I cut mine in small pieces unlike the instructions online. They'd be really pretty with full size pieces but I think harder to eat.

Here's I've poured in white grape juice to the top of the molds. I'm sure any kind of juice would work, or maybe even pureed fruit - yum, a thought for the next time.

And here they are getting ready to go in the freezer. Can't wait to try them....hmm, wonder how long it will take for them to freeze.

Hmm, I wonder if root beer would freeze well. Does anyone else remember enjoying root beer popsicles growing up? They were one of my fav's. When one of these molds empties I might have to give it a try.

I already checked online to see if I have to show up for jury duty tomorrow - good news, no trials so I check again late tomorrow to see if I have to go in on Thursday.  There was a trial scheduled for tomorrow but maybe they settled out of court sometime today. Looks like I'll be weaving tomorrow - whoo hoo.

  1. Yes, I remember root beer popsicles! And those fruit ones look positively yummy. Looks like a lot of fruit buying at the farmers market Thursday. ;-)

    1. They weren't frozen enough tonight to do the taste test so I'll have to do it tomorrow - they have to be yummy with all that fruit.
