Most of us struggle through Monday, but today I plan to tackle the day with loads of positive energy. Our weekend was an odd one… we were busy, the little guy got sick and I had to fit in work during a horrible rain storm. So, as I said, I will be tackling this Monday and week with an extra dose of positivity; an extra dose of positive vibes and fresh fruit popsicles!
Summer treats are quickly becoming my sons favorite. He’s a huge fan of fresh fruit (all kinds) and while we enjoy fruit and popsicles there’s always a big mess that comes along with it. Today I’ve teamed up with one of my favorite companies to share simple peach blueberry summer popsicles and the best paper towels around to help with the prep work and with the clean up. Grab all the details below!
As I mentioned my son loves (really really loves) fruit. This summer I’ve already whipped up a few fruit treats and this was one of his favorites. It’s a simple summer popsicle perfect for all ages!
When I prep summer perfect treats we always make a mess- it’s part of the territory. For this treat I started and ended with Viva® Towels to make life easier and less messy. While we are Vivia® fans (their product truly is the best when it comes to durability, stretch, strength and flexibility) I haven’t been using them during recipe prep work until now. I chopped the fruit for this popsicle recipe and then allowed them to dry on the towels. I’ll be using these towels all summer long for our messy treats to make life that much easier. Who doesn’t love less mess?
Look at all the fruit! I kinda want to jump through the screen and take a bit myself. It’s really refreshing and a treat that will be calling your name when the temperature hits the upper 90s.
And the photo below would be why we so badly need Viva® Towels in our home! My son is the cutest and so are his messes. I don’t mind cleaning his messes, but I’m not a fan of the mess the husband and I make. Isn’t that funny?
Now let’s get to this really easy recipe so you and the kids can get to making them!
Peach Blueberry Summer Popsicle
Fresh peach- sliced
1-2 cups of orange sports drink
- Pour orange sports drink (or juice of choice) into the popsicle molds about 3/4 full leaving room to add as much fresh fruit as possible. The more fruit, the better!
- Slice a peach and add 1-2 slices per popsicle holder.
- Add in blueberries and top off popsicles with water making sure to hit the ‘fill to here’ line.
- Allow the popsicles to freeze for 7-10 hours or even overnight.
- Be sure to have ample Viva® towels on hand and enjoy!
*I chose to add water to my popsicles to limit the amount of orange sports drink, but feel free to add juice and/or sports drink of choice to the fill line
Pin the image above as a recipe reminder and take a look at the photo below as a reminder of where you can find Viva® Towels at your local Publix while shopping for your fresh fruit popsicle supplies.
The Viva® Towels are smooth and soft allowing for the perfect hand wipe and the Viva® Vantage® Towels are woven which is great for scrubbing and cleaning up tougher messes. The perfect balance.
