Remember the Kitchen Tea? Well when I was wandering around the shoebox sized isles of Victoria's Basement and chose out the pink popsicle moulds for to give to Lucy, I grabbed a box for me too. Mum used to make fruit juice popsicles for us when we were two years old running nude under the sprinkler.
I can remember it so clearly, we had this ridiculously awesome wading pool and a slip'n'slide, all the implements of a what-do-you-mean-drought? summer. Ahhh the 90's, the serious good ol' days.
Now that we
only sometimes no longer run around nude under the sprinkler, and I don't think you are allowed slip'n'slides anymore, the popsicle is all we have left of our childhood summers. Blend up your favourite red fruits, add some mint and some juice and get licking, I had one for breakfast, and I think I might tomorrow as well.
straight from the horse's mouth
1 cup frozen raspberries
1 cup hulled strawberries
1 cup chopped up watermelon
a few mint leaves
1/2 cup guava juice
Blend all ingredients together in a blender, fill up popsicle moulds, leaving about 2cm at the top (as they expand while freezing) and leave in the freezer for a minimum of four hours, or preferably overnight. If you are finding it a bit hard to remove them from their moulds, run them under hot water for a few seconds and they should slide out easily enough.
