I really enjoy those frozen fruit bars from the market, and thought “I can make these at home”. So I did, and so can you! So after doing some research I found many, many different recipes. One to fit every flavor of Jam imaginable. You can purchase a nice Popsicle maker from Norpro or get one at the Dollar store. You can even use Dixie cups (I think they still make the paper ones) and put a Popsicle stick in the center. Either way these are fun and perfect for a hot afternoon!
Here you go, three different ways to make Jam Popsicles! Keep in mind you can chose to add your favorite fruits and get creative!!! Maybe try a strawberry Jam, lime Popsicle with Mango slices. MMmmmmm…
Strawberry Jam Popsicles
1 pint of strawberries (remove the stem and rinse)
1 jar of LunaGrown Jam
1/4 cup of water
Place ingredients into a food processor and puree. Pour ingredients into Popsicle molds or Dixie cups. Freeze for about 4 hours. If you are using the Dixie cup method you can allow the mixture to firm up and insert your stick, or just eat it like you would an icy! These are similar to frozen fruit bars.
Rica Barreja Popsicles
3 cups of plain or vanilla yogurt
1 jar of LunaGrown Rica Barreja Jam
1 cup of fruit juice (I prefer to use apple)
1 cup of diced bananas
Place the first 3 ingredients into a food processor and puree. Then hand mix the diced bananas into your mix. Pour into Popsicle molds or Dixie cups. Freeze for about 4 hours. This is similar to a Gellato.
Half a Jar of Jam Popsicles
This can be a bit time consuming but it’s fun and colorful!
Set out all the 1/2 jars or unfinished jars of jam you have left (use them before they get old). Prepare your Popsicle mold or your Dixie cups. Take two jars you think go well together and dump them into the food processor, add 1/4 cup of water and mix well. Pour this into the bottom of your molds and do the same with the next jar or jars of jam until you have many layers of different flavored jam ready to freeze. You will get Popsicles with layers of color and flavor. This is similar to an icy.
