This past weekend we experienced record temperatures in Ft. Myers, Florida. It certainly felt like it was over 100, and our air-conditioning was running overtime. I don’t like to be stuck indoors on a perfectly good summer day, so I try to keep cool by the pool with refreshing sliced fruit. It’s even better when the fresh fruit is frozen! One way to enjoy what’s left of summer is to dip your toes in the water and savor a fruity popsicle. Try these fruit juice pops using Kool-Aid and sliced fruit for an absolutely irresistible sweet treat.
To make Kool-Aid fruit pops, I bought fresh fruit to add to my fruit bar molds. For the Kool-Aid lemonade flavor, I chopped up half a lime and half a lemon. I removed the skin and added the fruit to the molds. I used two cubes of watermelon sliced to add to the Kool-Aid Watermelon molds. The entire process took less than ten minutes. After four hours or so in the freezer, I was left with these gorgeous Kool-Aid fruit bars!
The tart flavor of the lemon and lime made this sweet Kool-Aid lemonade bar a summertime delight.
Though, my favorite was the watermelon combination. Watermelon is my favorite summertime fruit, so I knew this pairing would be perfection. I enjoyed this one poolside along with a good book! I need to enjoy the sunshine while I can. Here in Florida, we have afternoon thunderstorms nearly every day that rain out perfectly good summertime activities. I try to enjoy the sunshine before the storm, and these fruit pops are just one to cool off on a warm afternoon.

While there isn’t an exact science to making perfect frozen pops, it is important to be patient. I kept checking mine every hour on the hour…I don’t recommend that! Set them and then forget them until later.
