Cherry Strawberry Ice Pops

icepopsIt has been so hot this week in NYC. Don’t get me wrong, I am not complaining. I will take this heat over the winter we had any day. However, I hate that when I take Emmi out of her stroller, her hair is matted to her head and she is soaked with sweat. So, I decided to take matters in my own hands. I blended cherries and strawberries with some water and a touch of raw agave poured the mixture into molds and a few hours later had these delicious Cherry Strawberry Ice Pops to cool everyone off. Super simple and delicious. But let me warn you, Emmi got so excited to eat this, she kept grabbing for the ice pop and it got everywhere. I should have thought twice before wearing a white tank while feeding it to her. So I suggest, dark-colored clothes if feeding this to kids under 2 :).
