F is for Fresh Fruit Popsicles

F - fresh peace popsicles

We were given a some fresh peaches and they are so yummy! However, we had more than we could possibly eat before they went bad. We had to do something with them. When looking for ideas for summer fun, I stumbled across a recipe for fresh peach popsicles from The Idea Room. This was it! We were going to use our fresh peaches for this.

F - cutting peaches

 

We started by teaching E how to cut up peaches. Then we put the quartered peaches into the food processor.

F - juicing lemons

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Next, E juiced a lemon and added that.

 

 

 

 

We added about 1/8 C of sugar, though we seriously debated about honey instead. Next came 1/4 C of orange juice and 1 tsp of vanilla.

F - filling molds

 

 

We blended it all up, J helped add it to our popsicle molds, and popped them in the freezer.

 

 

 

 

Now we were at the hard part…waiting.

Finally, they were finished and we got to eat them. Good, fresh, and healthy. We’ll make these again and we’ll probably try some other fruits as well this summer.
