Cold, delicious fruit freezer pops are easy to make on a whim.

Ingredients:

• 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
• 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
• 2 ripe pears, peeled and quartered

Instructions:

1. Place all ingredients in blender, and blend until smooth.

2. Pour mixture into freezer pop molds, and place in freezer until frozen.

Note: The pears in this recipe could be swapped for many different fruits, like peaches or apples. Some fruits, such as berries, might require an extra base like Greek yogurt or almond milk to get the proper consistency. Or try a combination of several fruits. Try different extracts and flavorings other than vanilla, or leave out flavorings altogether and just enjoy the pure taste of fresh fruits. You can also add some diced or sliced fruit into the molds before pouring in the blended mixture so there are fruit bits in your freezer pops. Experiment with what is available to you.
