It’s been scorching in Sydney and all across Australia as the heat surges to its 40s. Adelaide was just declared the hottest city in the planet last week as temperatures soared to 46.5* and the tennis players at the Australian Open can’t escape from what is summer in Australia. I’m not complaining though. I love summer and everything that goes with it – Australian flies and all.
It's summer and stone fruits are a plenty! Sometimes I get overly excited at my local fruit and veg shop and just buy buckets load. Sadly, with the heat most fruits soften quickly than normal at room temperature. So some of these were put to great use - home made fruit pops or popsicles. They're healthy, all natural and great to combat sweet cravings in the summer heat.
And a big thanks to Swah for hosting this month's Sweet Adventures Blog Hop! Check out her elegant white tea, pomegranate and mint popsicles!
To make these popsicles, we used plastic cups and wooden disposable forks.
4 peaches, pits removed
250g strawberries, hulled
juice of 4 valencia oranges
1-2 cups water
Using a blender, mix/process the fruits then add the orange juice slowly. Add the water as much or as little as you want. We used all 2 cups.
Pour into small plastic cups. Then place in the freezer for 30 minutes. When the popsicles are slightly firm, place wooden disposable popsicle sticks or wooden disposable forks.
Freezer overnight or for at least 6 hours.
These popsicles definitely brought out the party mood in our home.
