Escaping the Heat with Homemade Popsicles

Last Autumn I picked up this wonderful popsicle mold but didn't get to enjoy it very much before the weather got too cold for popsicles. I pulled it out again for the first time this year a couple of days ago when the temperature started heading up, up, up. 

This weekend was almost unbearably hot so we were very grateful for these refreshing icy treats!

For these popsicles, I used our new juicer and combined: 
2 mangos (puréed) 
1 pint strawberries (puréed) 
4 oranges (juiced)
1 lemon (juiced)

However, they could easily have been made with half as many ingredients. In addition to the popsicles we had an entire pitcher left over which we drank over a couple of days. It was so delicious that I'm planning to get more fresh fruit to juice and freeze this week!
