Kiwi Banana Popsicles (And a blogging milestone)

Before I get to yummy popsicly things, I must announce: 

This is my 800th post!!  Can you believe it!?  800!!!

Ok, so a few of those are drafts forever lost in draft land and never to be published but I am declaring 800 the official number. 

I started this blog in May of 2007.  Dale was almost 4.  Alan was 6 months old and waiting on a liver transplant. Tyler?  Tyler who? And baby number four? Get outta here!  

So, in celebration, or really, just because we start Bible school tomorrow and I am tired and this is easy, I share with you... 

Kiwi Banana Popsicles

4-6 kiwi, peeled
1 banana, peeled
1-3 teaspoons lemon juice
1-3 tablespoons sugar (or honey)
approx 1/4 cup water

Plop the fruit into a blender, add lemon juice and blend until smooth.  No banana chunks allowed!  Add water until the mixture is a good pouring consistency, but still nice and thick.  I don't think there is one right answer here.

Pour into paper cups or popsicle molds.  Mine were firm enough to support a popsicle stick after 15-20 minutes.  We didn't try peeling away the cup and eating them until the next day, but several hours ought to do it.

Tyler loves them!  The back-yard hose down afterward, however .... not so much. ;)

How did you get the stick to stand up in the cup? I would like to make some of these for my grandchidren.

Wait until the popsicles are about halfway frozen. It took mine about 20 minutes, and they were small cups. A couple leaned a little bit, but not bad at all.

Thanks! I'll try it.
