Power Pops! Green Machine and Mandarin Orange-Mango and Kiwi Popsicles!

It's August, it's hot and it's time for popsicles!  But, pass up the store bought ones or that ice cream truck and opt to make your own!

Great for a snack or for dessert.  Kids will love them as well!  And, this is a great way to get those kiddos to eat both fruit and veggies if you go with the green machine popsicle.

As for the Mandarin orange-mango and kiwi, I used chunks of kiwi that is nice to bite into with the varying texture, but is almost visually gorgeous!

These are so easy to make, I can't wait to try other new recipes!

If you don't have a popsicle mold, try using dixie cups with popsicle sticks.

A trick to getting the popsicles out of the molds is to run warm water on the outside of the mold until they just slide out.
