Traffic light ice lollies

Description

Colorful and healthy as the only ingredients in these ice lollies are fruit and honey.

Ingredients

2 c
strawberries (or any other red berries such as raspberries, washed and hulled)
2 c
peaches (peeled, stone removed and diced)
2 c
kiwi (peeled and diced, about 6 fruits)
3⁄4 c
honey

Instructions

  1. Puree strawberries and whisk in 1/4 cup (60 ml, about 4 Tablespoon) honey.
  2. Distribute among 12 ice lollipop molds and freeze until firm. It will take 30-45 minutes, depending on the freezer.
  3. Meanwhile, puree peaches and blend in another 1/4 cup honey.
  4. When the first layer is firm, divide the honey sweetened peach puree into the molds. Insert a lollipop stick and freeze for 30-40 minutes or until the peach layer is firm.
  5. Puree kiwis with the remaining 1/4 cup honey. Strain if necessary and pour kiwi puree into the molds. Freeze until firm and ready to serve.

To do stripped ice lollies, just set the layers in a different order.

Notes

You will need lollipop molds, and lollipop sticks. If you don't have them, improvise. paper cups are a good substitute for lollipop molds. Extra thick straws or plastic spoons can double as sticks - although the wooden ones are best, especially if the lollipops are intended for young children. Pureeing fruit is quick and easy with a food processor or blender, besides honey can be added and mixed in from the start. As all the fruit required to prepare these traffic lights is of the soft type, a coarse sieve and a whisk are a possibility.
