Tropical Popsicles and My New Cute Bag!

I made these for my son the other day! Yes... it is still popsicle weather here, although 102 is much cooler than 115! When you have fresh fruit on hand, popsicles are very easy to make and are still a healthy choice for a cool treat! We all loved these. They were the perfect amount of sweetness without any added sugars. Enjoy! :)

Ingredients:
1 peach, peeled, pitted and sliced
1/2 cup pineapple, cubed
1 banana, sliced
1/4 cup orange juice

Place all ingredients in a food processor and puree until smooth and liquid. Pour into popsicle molds or ice cube trays with popsicle sticks. Freeze for at least 4 hours or overnight. Serve and enjoy! :)


Oh... I also wanted to show off my new bag I won from Gabrielle's giveaway:

Isn't it super cute?! I love the yellow! It reminds me of sunflowers (my favorite)! :) Gabrielle makes lots of different bags. This one is a reusable grocery bag. I think it is so pretty! Almost too pretty to use as a grocery bag! I am planning on using it to tote around things in my house up and down the stairs. Check out Gabrielle's site if you are interested in purchasing some of these lovely bags! :)

I tried to make my son popsicles once and I couldn't get them out of the container thing I put them in so they could freeze. It was even one made for popsicles. I don't know what I did wrong. Grrrr.

Love the bag!

Cute bag! Can you post her site, the link isn't working ... I wanna browse!

And yum-O on the popsicle! I usually just pour juice in those things, the lazy way!

Gosh, it's already fall weather here in Missouri. Too bad, I love summer. The popsicles sound really good. The bag is adorable.

Mama Mel said...

Lisa Anne- Sometimes I just leave the popsicle molds on the counter for a couple of minutes, then try pulling them out. I still get stuck popsicles sometimes...

Andrea- I was having trouble opening Gabrielle's site too. Don't know what's going on. But, the site url is www.shopwisebags.com

Sara E- I think I found these in the dollar section at Michael's! "Safe" plastic too! :)

Sorry, we changed our url to:

It should forward but it is not working unless you put the exact old site address. Thanks for the shout out and I'm so glad you love the bag!!!!
