Nectarine and Strawberry Pops

33

Ice pops made with real fruit beat anything you'll find in the freezer case or on the ice-cream truck -- and it only takes a few minutes to get them into the freezer.

Ingredients

  • 1 pint (2 cups) strawberries, hulled
  • 4 nectarines (1 to 1 1/2 pounds total), halved, pitted, and cut into chunks
  • 1/2 cup sugar

Directions

  1. In a blender, puree strawberries, nectarines, and sugar until smooth. Pressing with a spoon or rubber spatula, pass mixture through a fine-mesh sieve into a glass measuring cup (discard solids).

  2. Pour mixture into eight 3-ounce pop molds. Insert sticks, then freeze until firm, at least 4 hours and up to 1 week.

Cook's Notes

Straining the puree is worth the extra minute or two. Your pops will be nice and smooth -- free of nectarine skin and strawberry seeds.
