Make Tropical Berry Pops - for these hot Summer days!

Let's face it this Summer heat has been almost unbearable for most of us!  Children don't even want to go outside to play unless there's a refreshing pool of water to play in.  But there's one way to spruce up these hot days and not only will the children love them but you will too!  What's even better is this is GOOD for you AND healthy as well! 
Tropical Berry Pops
Tropical Berry Pops can be made with your choice of berries and fruit juice.  They're easy to make and lots of fun for the children!

You'll need 2 cups of white grape juice, guava nectar, mango juice or apple juice, an 8 ounce can of crushed pineapples in juice, not water, 1/2 cup blackberries, raspberries, and/or blueberries, 1/2 cup fresh sliced strawberries and/or kiwi fruit and 12- 4oz paper cups or Popsicle molds. 

In a blender combine the pineapples with their juice and the 2 cups of other juice; blend until smooth.  Divide the berries evenly amongst the 4 cups or molds. Pour the juice over the fruit in each, then cover with aluminum foil.  Make a slit in the foil with a knife and insert a wooden stick or plastic spoon into each for handles. Freeze until firm, usually 4 to 6 hours.

You can also use the same recipe but put them into ice cube trays.  Once frozen you can transfer to a sealable bowl or plastic ziplock bag.  Keep them frozen for up to 2 weeks.

Variations might include flavored or plain yogurt mixed with the juice to make yogurt pops!
