Rainbow Popsicles

INGREDIENTS
  • 2 kiwis
  • 10 large strawberry halves
  • 1 mango, roughly chopped
  • 30 blueberries, roughly
DIRECTIONS
  1. Working with one fruit at a time, puree in a small food processor.
  2. Rinse the machine out between fruits.
  3. Carefully spoon layer by layer of your fruit into each popsicle mold.
  4. I didn’t freeze layer by layer because I thought my layers stayed nice but if you want absolute perfect lines then feel free too.
  5. Cover mold, add sticks and freeze for at least 5 hours or overnight.

TIP: Run the molds under warm water to loosen up the popsicles.

NOTE: The fruit amounts are approximate; depending on your mold you may need a little more or a little less. You can always add a little water or yogurt to stretch the amount.
