How to Make Frozen Fruit Bars

Overview

Imagine the delight of your family when you pull frozen fruit bars from the freezer on a hot summer afternoon. Use fruit you grow in your own gardens or purchase fruit in season from the produce section. The fruit combinations you can use to create different frozen fruit bars are almost limitless, and once you discover how easy it is to make these delicious treats you will want to make them often. This recipe makes six to eight frozen fruit bars.

Step 1

Choose the fruits you will use for your frozen fruit bars. Suggestions include blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, bananas, oranges, apples, watermelon, peaches, plums and cantaloupe. Cut the fruit into small chunks.

Step 2

Place the prepared fruit into the blender. Add the honey or sugar and the lemon juice. Process the ingredients until they are pureed. If the ingredients are too thick, add a small amount of water until it will pour easily.

Step 3

Pour the pureed ingredients into the paper cups. Insert a popsicle stick into each cup so the stick is in the center of the cup and is sticking straight up.

Step 4

Place the fruit bars into the freezer in a location where they will freeze without being disturbed. Allow the fruit bars to freeze until they are solidly frozen.

Step 5

Remove the frozen fruit bars from the freezer. Serve the frozen fruit bars by tearing away the paper cups from the frozen bars. Eat immediately.
