Grape Slushy Pops



It's popsicle season people!  Whatever name you have for them (ice pops, freeze pops, popsicles, frozen treats, you get the idea) there isn't much better on a hot summer day.  Guess What??  It's easy, healthy and affordable to make your own.  We use reusable molds, I highly recommend getting some (we found ours at our local Whole Foods Market and on Amazon).  You can also use disposable cups and popsicle sticks but be sure to add the sticks after about 45 min to an hour of freezing so they don't tip to the side.  The girls and I made these the other day and they were wonderful, refreshing and have a great slushy texture. I cannot wait to share more of our creations this summer.


Grape Slushy Pops - 9 Months+
Ingredients:
2 cups Grapes (we used red & green)
1 cup Orange Juice
1/2 cup pure Coconut Water

Wash your grapes.  Add all of the ingredients to a blender and whizz.  If you do not have a high powered blender that is okay, it might just take a little while to get the grapes blended up.  Pour the liquid into popsicle molds and freeze for about 6-8 hrs before eating.  I find rinsing the molds under a little hot water for 5-10 seconds will help them pop out easily.  The girls ate these up so fast I didn't even get one picture of them eating them.  Time to make more.
