Have you ever tried to reason with a 3-year-old? It’s amazing how fast they can trick you into something.
“I am three years old so I want three crayons!”. That is my youngest daughter’s recent argument for everything.
Everything has to be in threes. Three bedtime stories, three loveys to cuddle while sleeping ( even though they always end up on the floor or under her bed ), three baby carrots at a time on her dinner plate, three more marshmallows… oh boy, I could go on and on! Right now she is in her terrible two’s phase, although it seems to linger a bit if you ask me… 🙂
So what does it have to do with ice pops? Absolutely nothing, but I find myself tired in the end of a hot day and craving a satisfying and cooling treat.These pops are just that!
After the success of my no-bake cheesecake and whipped milk ice cream, I made a list of more no-bake desserts for this Summer. Ice pops were one of the top treats.
I used limes instead of lemons, because I am slightly obsessed with them recently. I made so many dishes featuring this gorgeous green citrus fruit that I just can’t wait to share them with you! I plan to make you lime-obsessed too! 🙂
These ice pops are so easy to make and so addicting! I hope you will give them a try. You will find them to be a nice change from lemonade. They are kiddos-approved because of the fruit slices and man-approved for the taste.
Limeade Ice Pops with Strawberry and Kiwi
3/4 c water
1/2 c lime juice
1/4 c agave, honey or simple syrup ( I used lime scented simple syrup from making candied lime peels )
8 strawberry slices
8 kiwi slices
In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together water, lime juice and syrup.
Place fruit slices in pops molds.
Carefully, pour the liquid over into molds.
Freeze until solid, 6 hours or overnight.
To release, run mold under warm water for few seconds.
