Blackberry and Grape Popsicles are so satisfying to make because they are quick, refreshing and impressive. Everybody loves a popsicle! So cool.
I love popsicles in the summer. Not only eating them but also making them because they are so easy and rewarding. Today I combined sweet seedless red grapes with a little bit of blackberries and got the best fruit mixture!
Blackberries grow wild all over the United States and I mean on the roadsides and up trails and maybe even in your own backyard. If you are lucky enough to live by one of these big patches make sure you get out there and pick some.
I mentioned boxed blackberries in the recipe because if you live in the city and/or can get to a farmer’s market you’ll be able to pick up blackberries this way too. We use to live right up the road from a giant patch of blackberries where I was lucky enough to be able to pick to my heart’s content.
Whether you eat them fresh or use them in a recipe, like this one, they are a wonderful fruit. What a treat!
A little hint … this mix is also a fantastic and refreshing slushie. Just freeze in a low wide casserole. Scrape out like a granita or put chunks into a blender for another way to enjoy this recipe.
Blackberry and Grape Popsicles
- 6 ounces blackberries
- 16 ounces grapes red, seedless
- That is it! 2 ingredients.
- Pick the grapes from the stems.
- Add the grapes and blackberries to a food processor, chopper, blender. I used the Ninja and it really makes a smooth job of this process. Here is a link to the exact one that I have Ninja Master Blender
- After the fruit is all blended put through a sieve.
- I like the clear fruit juice.
- I also rub my finger around in the sieve and get as much juice as I can.
- There will be pulp leftover when you are done.
- Do not worry about exact measurements.
- Pour into your popsicle molds, stick in your popsicle sticks and freeze at least 6 hours.
- Here is the clickable link for the popsicle mold that I used. I have used it a few times now and it works really well. Ice Pop Maker
- To get the popsicles out of the mold I ran hot water on the underside first.
- Take the frozen popsicles out of the mold and put in a freezer bag.
- Replace in the freezer.
So, however you can buy or pick your fruit try to make these popsicles. They are easy and rewarding. Just a little bit of time and they are ready for the freezer. After they were frozen at my house they became my favorite frozen dessert and … how can you get a healthier snack than from a two fruit ingredient popsicle? Too cool!
