To give these icy snacks a creamier sorbet-like texture, partially freeze the fruits before pureeing. Substitute other berries and fruit as you like, but always use some banana in each mixture for good consistency. I got this from Country Living(1992). Cook time is freezing time.

  • 2 bananas, peeled and halved
  • 2 very ripe kiwi fruits, peeled and halved (you may sub peaches, grapes, mango, etc.)
  • 23 cup strawberry (fresh or frozen, or other berries of your choice)
  • 12 cup orange juice
  • 3 tablespoons light corn syrup

Directions

  1. Several hours or day bdfore serving prepare fruit purees: Place bananas, kiwifruit, and fresh strawberries in freezer until partially frozen and firm.
  2. (If using frozen strawberries, allow to thaw slightly until just softened.) Pour orqnge juice into glass dish or pie plate; freeze until almost solid.
  3. In food processor with chopping blade or blender, combine 2 banana halves, 1 tbls.
  4. corn syrup, and the orange juice; process until mixture is smooth and pureed.
  5. Divide between two 3-ounce metal timbale molds, two 5-ounce paper cups, or any 3-ounce popsicle molds.
  6. Puree kiwifruit with 1 banana half and 1 tbls.
  7. corn syrup; divide mixture between 2 molds or cups.

Delicious and we loved having three flavors of fruit pops! I used bathroom size paper cups and made 12 fruit pops. Thanks for sharing -- we will be having lots of these this summer!

These were delicious! Really refreshing. I used mango instead of kiwi but otherwise made it as directed. Thanks Sharon for a great summer time treat.
