I've been seeing homemade fruit pops all over Pinterest for months. I've pinned a bunch of them, but never got around to making them. Not because they're difficult or anything...in fact, they're crazy simple to make....I just never got around to buying the damn molds!
I went to Amazon and found a 6 pop mold I liked for $18. I put it in my cart, but then something happened and I forgot about it. Glad I did because when I popped into Job Lot the other day, I remembered them and found 4 pop molds for $2.99 each...I grabbed 2.
You can find fruit pop recipes everywhere it seems...I used these particular recipes because they showed up in my eMeals weekly menu. Perfect timing. I still have a bunch from Pinterest I want to try though.
Anyway, as the title says, they're super simple to make. Normally, for the watermelon pops, I would have purchased pre-cut watermelon, but the commissary doesn't sell containers of already cut fruit, so I bought a watermelon and cut it myself. If you buy the cut container though, all you've got to do is throw those chunks in the blender and you're good to go! Jesse loves the watermelon pops...personally I prefer my watermelon whole, but that's just me. The strawberry yogurt pops were my favorite. Jesse hasn't tried that one yet...he better hurry though cause there's only one left ;)
Oh, and just a bit of advice...to easily remove the pops from the mold, just run some hot water over them until the slide out. Works great. Some take a little longer than others, but they all come out eventually :)
Have a great day!
