Summer Smart Treat Fat-Free Juice & Fruit Ice Candy

Summer is here, and my kids are always waiting, for summer fun in amusement, water parks, picnics, basically their only season to enjoy popsicle, ice -cream sice-candies, and I really do not like the store bought ones..so this time I thought to be a little more innovative at the same time more healthy & more fun ways to enjoy ice candies. We made these ice candies, by pouring any flavoured fruit juice, we used orange, mixing it with any fresh fruits or just mixing different berries would taste awesome at the same time its healthy, in a ice candy maker..which I bought from nearest walmart. You can be real creative to beat the heat by mixing milk with nesquick, adding GITS Instant kulfi powder to milk..play around with greek yogurt/yogurt instead of milk, blend/churn yogurt and add different flavours to it, like pureed/diced mango, strawberry, saffron-nuts..you can even swirl it around with 2 different color / flavor juices, pour one and let it set....then add fruits..let it set and now add different color juice, pour-in to this ice candy /kulfi maker, freeze and you are done..Enjoy your creativity.....

Want to see the picture how creative we were...here it is.....Lol

Preparation time: 5 mins
Freezer time: 2 hours
Serves 4

Ingredients:

1 C Orange Juice (depending upon how many ice candies you want to make)
1 C Fresh Diced Berries ( I used, strawberry, blueberry & raspberry)

Method:

1. Pour-in your favourite juice with chunks of fruits in ice candy maker & freeze..thats it you are done.
2. What else .....enjoy..these guilt free snacks with your kids.
