Tropical Fruit Pops


Funny how my 3 year old asked Popsicle for breakfast.I don't blame him, the heat and humidity was intense and so was the thirst.And having enjoyed these the day before in mid afternoon heat,little buds assumed must be OK to eat them whenever thirsty.Not that these are no good to start the day,but he still had to take his milk and cereal for starters and pops for dessert.

Acai-Coconut-Papaya-Banana Pops
Papayas,kiwis,mangoes,bananas,pineapple,coincidentally had all the tropical fruits in hand to give a very tropical touch to the fruit pops.A real summer indulgence,you could enrich the fruit pops with variety of real fresh fruit puree ,deliciously adding a daily serving of all natural fruits and fiber in your diet,void of artificial colors or excess sugar.



Acai-Coconut-Mango-Pineapple Pops
Layering the pops in different fruit flavors seemed daunting at first,then figured that semi-freezing each fruit layer then proceeding with next layer and finally immersing the stick over the last layer and then freezing completely.Evidently the method worked beautifully,the vibrant pops caught my kiddos attention instantly and of course they were not satisfied with one.

I recently took out my pop molds too. I even have the fancy molds which layer colors one inside another. I'll try your combos on it to see how it turns out :)
I especially like the idea of coconut in pops....would be super creamy, I imagine :)
