Strawberry Kiwi Vitamin C Ice Pops

Loaded with vitamin C and naturally sweet this spectacular quick and easy 4 ingredient ice pop is everything that you could hope for in a healthy frozen treat. Bursting with flavor from fruit high in antioxidants and vitamin c this popsicle recipe has gotten us through several illnesses this year.  Try it and you'll think its magical too!

A few weeks ago Munchkin came down with yet another seasonal virus and all she would eat is ice pops. I couldn't get her to eat any food or take any vitamins, but ice pops were a thumbs up. I quickly realized that if she was only having ice pops I really needed to make them count.

As you may know "Vitamin C is an important vitamin and antioxidant that the body uses to keep you strong and healthy".

Munchkin definitely needed to be strong and healthy, so I researched Vitamin C and the fruit that pack the biggest punch. Surprisingly, oranges are not the fruit with the most vitamin c. I found many articles (here, here and here) that quote kiwi and strawberries as having more vitamin c than citrus.  So, I was off to create the perfect Vitamin C Ice Pop. out my favorite ice pop mold here that makes these classic looking, perfect every time ice pops. It is pretty compact at only 9"x6"x4" so it takes up very little room in the freeze too. I have 4 of them so I can make a ton of ice pops for parties and long summer days.  LOL

Sure enough, Munchkin thought they were absolutely magical: they are pretty to look at and (naturally) sweet. Not to mention, after devouring several of these she started to feel better so now Mommy and Daddy think they are pretty magical too. LOL
