Pomegranate, Raspberry, and Nectarine Popsicles

I forgot to show you this recipe for Pomegranate, Raspberry, and Nectarine Popsicles I blogged about over at Tablespoon a couple of weeks ago. They are my new favorite treat for summer, and I don’t have to feel guilty about eating them. The kids love them too!

Madeline really loves popsicles right now and it’s been so darn hot, I don’t blame her! Do you have any homemade popsicle recipes you love that are semi-healthy? What is your favorite hot weather treat?

Pomegranate, Raspberry, and Nectarine Popsicles

a goodLife {eats} creation

Ingredients:

8 ounces pomegrante or pomegranate-nectarine juice
8 ounces frozen raspberries
4 ounces peeled and diced white nectarine
8 three ounce sized dixie cups
8 popsicle sticks
foil

Directions:

In a blender or small food processor, combine the juice, raspberries, and nectarine. Puree until completely smooth and no chunks remain. Divide mixture evenly among the 8 cups. Cover each cup with foil and stick a popsicle stick through the middle of the foil. Place in the freezer and chill until frozen. Approximately 3-6 hours, depending on the original temperature of the puree.

To remove the popsicles from the cups, discard the foil and pull the stick. If you have trouble, you may run the outside of the cup under warm water for a second.

Note: I recommend chilling the juice and nectarine first for faster freezing results.
