If you live in Nashville surely you’re familiar with Las Paletas, our local gourmet popsicle dealer. They’re delicious and absolutely creative in their flavors (all made with real fruit and natural ingredients).


But… they can be a bit pricey. So I decided to make my own. Hubs and I make smoothies at home all the time so this was a simple adaptation. I blended up a mix of way-too-many kinds of frozen fruit (we buy bags of frozen fruit and freeze our own bananas), sugar, and water. Then I carefully spooned the mixture into my popsicle molds. Easy peasy!


Might as well make yourself a smoothie while you’re at it…


Afterall, it takes a while for the fruit-sicles to freeze.

    I’ve been wanting to make our own ice-pops for awhile. Unfortunately the huge slab of frozen wedding cake is monopolizing my tiny freezer:(

    Love your page!

    Fellow E. Nashvillian here just stumbled across your blog. I’ve been meaning to try my own Peletas rip-off. Alton Brown has 2 tricks for his melon sorbet: (a) some lemon juice makes fruit flavor burst since it becomes muted when cold, and (2) a little vodka can soften the texture to a mostly-water desert by helping keep the crystalization under control. I’d probably start with only a tblspoon for 6 pops.
