Fruity Ice Pops
Cool off with these easy summer treats
Frank Epperson popularized ice pops after patenting the concept of “frozen ice on a stick” in 1923. In 1924 he patented the word “popsicle” for all frozen confections on a stick.
This recipe for ice pops is made with real fruit and juice. Because you make the ice pops in ice cube trays, they’re the perfect size for small mouths and hands, and a stick inserted in each ice pop creates an easy handle for your child to hold on to. If you plan to make this recipe with your child, you might want to make a separate batch ahead of time, so you don’t have to wait for your batch to freeze. You and your child can explore the taste, texture, and temperature of the ice pop while your tray is freezing.
