I am moving back to Cambridge/Somerville in a couple weeks. Though I am happy to be going “home,” I’m dreading the move. I HATE moving. The actual move day is horrible, but it’s the packing I can’t stand – and the unpacking. In an effort to avoid these unpleasant things, I’ve turned to the kitchen. Since it is too hot for me to want to use my oven, I decided to make paletas or popsicles. Few things taste better on a hot day then a popsicle.
With just three simple ingredients (and no added sugar), these all fruit pops are easy to whip up.
Blueberries and pomegranates make the perfect combo with their anti-oxidant, super-food superpowers. Not to mention, they taste good. I threw in plums as well, but any other fruit would do – next up, blueberry peach?!
makes approximately 10 three oz popsicles
3 cups blueberries
1 cup plums, pitted and chopped (or other fruit)
1/2 cup pomegranate juice
3 oz plastic cups and popsicle sticks, or popsicle molds
Blend together 2 1/2 cups blueberries, plums, and juice, until smooth. Add in remaining blueberries and pulse a couple times (you want some fruit chunks).
Pour into cups on a baking sheet. Put in freezer for 30 minutes. Insert popsicle sticks and freeze until solid. Enjoy or put into plastic bags and eat as you please.
