It’s a hot week in the northeast! I think Pennsylvania is trying to prove to me that it can do summer just as well as Texas.
My husband came along to the track yesterday for the warm up jog and that was enough for him. He cheered on my 6 x 800s and jogged the cool down home. We were both melting!
So our favorite way to beat the heat these days?
L loved helping grandma make these simple layered fruit bars. All you need is a blender and popsicle molds.
Layered Fruit Popsicles
- 1 c. kiwi
- 1 c. mango
- 1 c. strawberries
- 1/8 c. water for each
Puree the kiwi with 1/8 c. water and pour into the bottom third of the popsicle molds. Puree the mango with 1/8 c. water and pour as the middle layer. Puree the strawberries with 1/8 c. water and fill the molds to the top. Place popsicle tops on and freeze until set.
There is no need for added sugar. They are sweet, colorful and delicious!
