Pear and Sunset Pops, orange pops and strawberries in ice

Summer and popsicles are made for each other. Live Well Alabama’s Pear Pops and Sunset Pops are kid-friendly and kid-loved recipes. The recipes also called for real fruit, meaning no-added-sugar for this cool and sweet treat.

Tips: If using sweetened pears or pears canned in syrup, use less honey. Use plastic spoons or wooden skewers if you cannot find pop sticks. Poke a hole through plastic wrap, foil, or another paper cup if needed to hold sticks in place during freezing.
