Frozen Fruit Pops

"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."

    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.
