Cantaloupe Ice Pop

274.This summer take luscious, sweet fruits; cantalope, watermelon, peaches, strawberries, melons and berries, and make Ice Pops.  Rather than eating high fat, high sugary ice cream, make a healthy, fruity summer treat.
It is simple and easy to make. 
Cantaloupe Ice Pops

1/2 large cantaloupe, seeded and peeled, cut in cubes, about 2 cups
1 6oz size personal yogurt, pineapple, lemon, lime or your choice (optional)
juice from 1/2 a lime
1/4 cup sugar if needed
1/4 cup fruit juice, orange, pineapple, white cranberry or your choice

Place all in a blender and mix till fully blended.  Taste for sweetness.  If the mixture is too dry, add more juice till smooth.  Pour into prepared ice pop forms.  Or small paper cups.
Cover with holders or,  freeze for one hour and place popsicle sticks into center of each ice pop.
Freeze for up to 6 hours.  Then remove and run hot water on bottom of ice pops till they remove freely.
 They are beautiful and taste so good!!!
They are satisfying, taste fresh and fruity without all the extra additives that are in store bought popsicles.
Use your imagination and choose any fruit.  Experiment and you will surprise yourself how delicious!
Happy Summer!!!
