Simple and Healthy Fruit Salad Ice Pops

Avigail and JuJu are here for “Bobby Camp” and we are having a ball.  The weather has been hot and getting increasingly humid again.  I wanted to prepare a healthy, beautiful and colorful ice pop as a refreshing treat for them on these last hot summer days.  They love fruit and this recipe really hit the spot!

I chose to use unsweetened iced tea as my liquid base with a variety of mango, berries, nectarine and kiwi as my fruits.  You can easily adjust this recipe to  use any variety of juice or soda as your liquid base and just fill with your favorite summer fruits.

I cut a variety of beautiful and delicious fruit into small pieces…

I layered the fruit into some dixie cups and filled the gaps with some unsweetened homemade Iced Tea.
