Summer Fruit Popsicles for Your Winter Freezer #SundaySupper

There’s something about the end of summer that really makes me want to preserve it for those cold, dark days of winter.  Sure we can find more and more produce all year round in the grocery store, but it’s those farmer’s market finds that really POP on your taste buds.

I like to make batches of sauces and soups to freeze for the winter along with lots of popsicles for Mini Me. That girl can lick a popsicle in below freezing weather and follow it up with a hot cocoa chaser!

Watermelon is one of her favorites and so simple to make. Just some pureed watermelon and freshly squeezed lime juice and you have a perfectly healthy treat that mom doesn’t have to say NO to when asked.

There is never a shortage of popsicles in our freezer. I don’t mean the ones laced with sugar and preservatives that are merely food coloring and ice in a plastic tube. I mean high quality, nutritious popsicles made from fresh fruits (and sometimes vegetables). That just gave me an idea I haven’t tried yet. A carrot popsicle!

Some of our other favorites around here include: Strawberry Cantaloupe and Strawberry Kiwi Melon

I also like to make protein-based fudgesicles for those moments when I’d like a little treat, but want to feel like I’m not deviating from my fitness goals.  For those times, I simply turn my peanut butter cup, pistachio or butterscotch High Protein Desserts into a childhood treat!

I’ve also been known to take any of our Family Favorite Smoothies like the Tropical Bomb Pop or the Dirty Banana (all made with fruit) and turn them into popsicles.

I got so excited about all the fun we have turning farmer’s markets fruits and vegetables and other favorite desserts into popsicles that I almost forgot to tell you about all the great recipes Caroline Williams from Caroline’s Cooking  and some of my other friends are sharing this week for #SundaySupper Farmer’s Market Harvesting! Check them out below, PIN them so you can find them and share them with your friends so they can keep their freezers full of good eats for the winter!
