It’s heating up out there and that means we’re always on the hunt for ways to cool off! My kids love ice cream and ice pops but as a mom, I’m looking for easy treat ideas that work for me as I’m making better choices. This easy orange berry ice pops recipe is fresh and healthy. The kids can help you make them, but I’m not sure you’ll want to share them once they’re ready! I call these my “mommy ice pops” and do my best to keep them to myself!
Mixed Berry Ice Pops Recipe
Grambo and I have both been sharing about some changes we’re making in our lives. Changes for the better! We’ve been getting more active again and focusing on making better choices when it comes to what we eat. But that doesn’t mean I don’t have my usual sweet cravings! I do! I definitely do! That’s why options like our Orange Berry Ice Pops are great for us!
I’m a huge fan of citrus and berries. Grambo loves a glass of orange juice in the morning too but sometimes the high acidity gets to her a little bit. So we were happy to try Simply Orange Low Acid!
The new low acid option has the same benefits as regular Simply Orange Juice (never sweetened, concentrated or frozen, with no added preservatives, colors or artificial flavors), while also providing a good source of calcium and has a smooth, delicious taste that’s the next best thing to fresh squeezed. It’s a great way to start the morning with a healthy breakfast!
But Grambo and I also wanted to have a sweet treat. So while our Simply Orange Low Acid has been great on its own, we wanted to try it in this easy ice pops recipe to see how we could enjoy it in other ways!
What You Need:
- 2 Cups fresh washed strawberries
- 1/4 Cup fresh washed blackberries
- 1/4 Cup Simply Orange Low Acid
- 3oz Dixie style cups
- popsicle sticks
What You Do:
- Place strawberries and Simply Orange Low Acid into blender and blend for about 30 seconds.
- Place a few blackberries into each cup.
- Fill cups with your blended strawberry mixture and add a few more blackberries.
- Place a popsicle stick into the middle of each cup and place in the freezer (if you have a hard time getting your sticks to stick straight up, wait an hour after they’ve been in the freezer).
- Freeze for several hours, pull down on the side of the cup and your ice pops will pop right out!
So basically, I wanted to eat all of these orange berry ice pops! I’m looking forward to making them again, perhaps with different berries this time! I’ll have to pick up some more Simply Orange Low Acid though because Grambo and I drank it all! Justin didn’t even get any! Oops!
So if you love the taste of orange juice but you’re sensitive to acid, Simply Orange Low Acid is a great choice! It’s never concentrated, never sweetened and never frozen (unless you make your own ice pops)! But it has a great smooth, mild, and delicious taste!
Whether you love it with breakfast or use to make some fun and easy recipes like we did, it’s a great way for adults to enjoy orange juice again. You can share with the kids, of course, but you might want to keep this for yourself! It’s that good!
