Editor's Note: Add some zing to your list of summertime treats when you make these Pomegranate Berry Ice Pops! The recipe is easy to make and results in an ice pop the entire family will love. This refreshing fruit dessert is just what you'll want to snack on when the temperature rises, and you'll love having these tasty frozen treats on hand.

Pomegranate juice makes a wonderful base for strong-flavored berries such as wild blueberries or raspberries. The result is an intensely fruity, pleasantly tart and undoubtedly healthy ice pop. You can use frozen berries year-round for convenience.

Ingredients

  • Blender
  • Fine-mesh sieve
  • 2 cups unsweetened pomegranate juice, divided 500 mL
  • 3 tbsp agave or corn syrup, or ¼ cup (60 mL) brown rice syrup 500 mL
  • 2 cups wild blueberries, raspberries or blackberries, thawed if frozen 45 mL

Instructions

  1. In a glass measuring cup, mix ¼ cup (60 mL) pomegranate juice with syrup. Heat in a microwave oven until mixture is thin, about 10 to 20 seconds on High. (You can also do this on the stovetop, in a small saucepan over medium heat, heating for about 1 minute.) Add to blender with remaining juice and berries; puree at medium speed (see Tip, left).

  2. Strain through sieve placed over a large measuring cup, pressing down and scraping solids with a rubber spatula to extract as much pulp and juice as possible. Discard solids.

  3. Pour into molds and freeze until slushy, then insert sticks and freeze until solid, for at least 4 hours. If you are using an ice pop kit, follow the manufacturer’s instructions.

Tip

Because every brand of blender has a different power capacity, speeds vary greatly. Generally, to puree a mixture, start at a slow to medium speed and move up to medium-high speed on a powerful blender, or high speed on a less powerful model. If the engine is very strong, too much air may be incorporated into the mixture at high speed.
