Make frozen pear fudge pops. Blend a 15-ounce can of pears, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract, a 3 1/2-ounce box of instant chocolate pudding, and 1 1/2 cups of 2 percent milk in a blender on medium-high for one minute. Pour into paper cups. Insert a Popsicle stick and place in the freezer until solid, about 3 hours.

 

The frozen popsicles were a delicate, pleasing taste. Somebody even can pears with the skins still on them, but skin was not at all noticeable after the blending and in the popsicles. To get the popsicles out of the plastic cups, you just had to hold the outside of the cup in your hand for a bit or run it under some water. Then, the popsicle slipped right out. They were not frozen as hard as ice cubes of pure water, but they were more the kind you suck on, rather than the kind you nibble on.

 

I think frozen and canned fruit may be the way to go for making quick, nutritious popsicles. Frozen fruit is basically the same as fresh fruit nutritionally. It is easy to store and easy to use. Canned fruit is not too bad nutritionally, and is extremely convenient for certain types of fruit. Of course, there are some kinds of fruit that are really only available fresh. It just depends on how much you want to peel and dice for your popsicles!
