All Fruit Ice Pops

My son and I made these ice pops the other day, which was a fun activity on its own, to enjoy on a rare San Francisco hot day like today. I bought ice pop trays at our local 5 and dime, but you can make these in baby food containers and eat like Italian ices, or stick a popsicle stick in a dixie cup to freeze. You can make this with really any fruit, we just used whatever we had in the fridge. We used oranges, strawberries, and blackberries. You can add vanilla yogurt to these too if you like (dairy is still not a friend of mine yet in this pregnancy so we left it out). These ice pops are a great snack for you and your toddler (12+ months) to enjoy.

What you need for this fruit combo (again you can use any fruit you like):
Makes 6 small ice pops
3 large oranges freshly juiced (or store bought orange juice)
1 to 2 handfuls organic strawberries
1 to 2 handfuls organic blackberries
1 tbsp honey

Squeeze oranges into a bowl (or use a hand juicer, my son loved this) make sure to remove seeds from juice bowl. Set orange juice aside. Blend strawberries, 1/2 tbsp honey and a little water until smooth and set aside. Blend blackberries, 1/2 tbsp honey and a little water and set aside. You should have 3 separate bowls of juice. Using a ladle, spoon, or you could pour straight from bowl, begin to layer the juices into ice pop containers until they are full. Place in freezer until frozen (we left ours in over night), and then enjoy! If you are planning on using vanilla yogurt leave out the honey, you don't want them to be too sweet.
