Fresh Fruit Popsicles #recipe from author @DarylWoodGerber

I'm off on an adventure with my 13-year-old grandson to Disneyland. We're having a marvelous time and I'll share pictures next week, but that means I'm not around to leave many comments today. Hope you don't mind. I don't get to see him one-on-one very often, but when I do, we have a blast! We walk the same pace; we talk about everything. He's a very cool kid an I'm blessed to have him in my life. 

Eli loves supporting my writing efforts!
he's a good reader.

So I'm off to Space Mountain and Guardians of the Galaxy and all worlds other for the remainder of the day.

Enjoy what ever brings you fun!

Here’s a quickie recipe, perfect for the kids anytime of the year but particularly at a BBQ. I found the Mickey popsicle holders at a local store but I know you can find them on Amazon and elsewhere. So cute!

Fruit Pops with Fresh Fruit

2 cups fresh strawberries or raspberries
¼ cup apple juice
2 tablespoons honey
½ lemon, squeezed (no seeds)
1/8 teaspoon salt

Rinse your frozen popsicle mold (four 5-6 ounce)

Combine all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.

Pour the mixture into the popsicle molds. Place in freezer for at least 5 hours.


Savor the mystery!

  1. Such a refreshing fruit pop recipe/treat. Keep having a marvelous time in Disneyland!

  2. Keep enjoying Disneyland and your grandson! Sounds like a wonderful pop recipe.

  3. Excuse me, but how on earth do you have a 13 year old grandson? Did you have children of your own at age 10?!

    Handsome young man. Have a blast!

    1. Ha! Libby, this is my step-daughter's son. My husband was previously married with two kids when I met him. They are adorable adults now and I'm blessed. My son with Chuck does not yet have children. But, ahem, I'm old enough to have grandkids! ~ Daryl

    2. Grandkids, yes. But a 13 year old seemed extreme!
      Hope you are having a great time.

  4. Have a fantastic time! Disneyland with grandkids is the best!!!
