Fruit for popsicles

INGREDIENTS

Strawberry Rhubarb 

  • 2 1/2 cups diced rhubarb 

  • 1 1/2 cups diced strawberries

  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar

Coconut Lime

  • 1 (13.5-ounce) can full-fat unsweetened coconut milk

  • 1 cup cream of coconut

  • 1 tablespoon finely grated lime zest

Mango 

  • 3 cups diced mango 

  • 3 tbsp lime juice

  • 4 tbsp granulated sugar

  • Tajin or other chili seasoning for garnish

RECIPE PREPARATION

Strawberry Rhubarb 

  • Place a medium-sized saucepan on the stove over medium heat. Add the rhubarb, strawberries and sugar. Stir until ingredients are combined and sugar has dissolved. Cook for about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until fruit is broken down. Remove from the heat and let cool for about 10 to 15 minutes before pouring into popsicle molds with popsicle sticks. Freeze for 6 to 8 hours or overnight. You may need to run the molds under warm water to help release the pops. 

Coconut Lime

  • Combine ingredients in a bowl and whisk together. Pour into popsicle molds with popsicle sticks. Freeze for 6 to 8 hours or overnight. You may need to run the molds under warm water to help release the pops. 

Mango

  • Puree mango in a blender or food processor. Stir in lime juice and sugar. Pour into popsicle molds with popsicle sticks.  Freeze for 6 to 8 hours or overnight. You may need to run the molds under warm water to help release the pops. Dip frozen pops in tajin or chili seasoning.
