Homemade Frozen Berry Fruit Bars


These tasty fruit bars are so simple to make and are much healthier than the store bought kind. My toddler absolutely loves them and they make a great hot weather treat!


Homemade Frozen Berry Fruit Bars
Adapted from County Living
Makes 10 Bars
WW PP=2
Cal 82, Fat 0g, Carbs 20.7g, Fiber 1g, Protein 0g

Ingredients
8 tbsp. granulated sugar (stevia would work too if you are looking for a low carb/cal option)
3 cups fresh blueberries
3 cups fresh raspberries
1 tbsp. lemon juice


Make Simple Syrup: In a small pot over medium-high heat, bring sugar and an equal amount of water to a simmer. Stir until sugar dissolves. Set aside until cool, about 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, purée berries in a food processor or blender. Transfer to a pitcher, then stir in simple syrup and lemon juice

Strain mixture through a sieve (I used a colander and it worked fine) into a medium bowl, pressing pulp with a ladle. Transfer strained mixture back to pitcher.

Pour mixture into ice-pop molds (I bought mine at Target but I've also seen them at Bed Bath and Beyond), leaving a little room at the tops. Insert sticks and freeze until solid, about 5 hours. Unmold and serve. Enjoy!
