Fruit Popsicles

I'm already hearing chatter about the end of summer, but I refuse to accept the idea that the days of popsicles and trips to the pool are over.  At the beginning of the summer, I purchased a Zoku Popsicle Mold and we've been having homemade popsicles all summer long.  I sound like a broken record at this point, but you know I like my desserts less sweet and when you make popsicles at home, you can reduce the sugar or omit it entirely.  The other "vessels" for popsicles that are perfect for Blythe are Kiddzo Reusable Ice Pop (essentially you can make Otter Pops at home).  The Kiddzo molds are less messy for Blythe, but harder to clean and fill.

I feel a little lame, but I don't have a recipe for popsicles to give you because my approach is to take whatever fruit I have on hand, blend it with coconut water, almond coconut milk, or juice and freeze it! I got the idea to make a layered popsicle from these Tie Dye Popsicles, but I could only manage two layers (which you achieve by making one layer, freezing it until partially frozen (15-20 minutes)).  I'm going to try these Coconut Milk Fudgesicles this weekend, but the popsicles pictured are one layer of strawberries and blueberries blended with coconut water and one layer of watermelon.  Nothing fancy, but they do the trick on a hot summer afternoon. It's not too late for summer 2016 and you know it will be hot well into September anyway!
