It’s HOT out there! This week, I used my new Vitamix to make a refreshing, cool treat that is actually good for you and keeps you hydrated in the heat. I found this recipe in the cook book that came with the Vitamix, and I was glad that I tried it, and hope you will be too.
Summer Blush Popsicles
½ cup (120ml) water
3 cups (400g) grapes, red or green
2 Tablespoons (30ml) agave nectar or honey (optional)
2 cups (300g) frozen unsweetened peach slices (I used fresh peaches)
1 cup (150g) frozen unsweetened raspberries (I used fresh raspberries)
1. Place all ingredients into the Vitamix container in the order listed and secure lid.
2. Select Smoothies program.
3. Press start
4. Allow machine to complete programmed cycle, using the tamper to press ingredients into the blades.
5. Pour into popsicle molds and freeze.
Preparation time: 10 minutes
Yield: 4 ¼ cups (1L)
Note: You can still make this even if you don’t have a Vitamix. If using a different blender, simply add ingredients and blend until smooth.
