Frozen rainbows

Recently, while poking around on Pinterest, I came across an idea for ice cubes made from fruit nectar. (Don’t all great ideas come from Pinterest now?)

Images of iced tea with mango, strawberry and peach ice cubes filled my mind (okay fine, I also considered using them in rum) and nectar made its way onto my grocery list.

Then life got busy and those three cans of nectar have sat neglected in the pantry ever since.

But yesterday, when the nastiest summer cold hit Katie, the nectar finally got put to use…

strawberry nectar, mango nectar, peach nectar, juice

ice pops, popsicles, popsicles made from nectar, homemade popsicles, Zoku Quick Pop Maker

Maybe I’ll just stir my iced tea with a popsicle?

(We’ve had our Zoku Quick Pop Maker for a year now and we love it. Although these are pretty, the Oreo pops we made last summer still leave me swoony.)

    Yum! You are one smart mommy. Especially the rum part.

    What? No blueberry?
    BTW, Sunday? Maddy was wearing the SAME dress and yes, got blueberry popsicle down the front of it. Good thing I was a laundress in another life.

    I sort of want to lick my computer screen.

    I wish we had fruit nectar :) I have sick kids who would love that. The good thing is that the Zoku makes them think even frozen juice is a treat :)

    Ooooh! That looks so great! And yes, I'm beginning to think that all good ideas come from Pinterest. ;)

    Oh, I bet those are terrific when you're under the weather. Or not. :) Hope Katie is feeling better.
