Orange Pear Popsicle

Orange-Pear Popsicle

As the rest of you entering autumn, we are experiencing heat waves. I wanted to create something that combines taste of fall that was soothing in the heat. I used orange and pears for this recipe and spiced it with a little bit of cinnamon and dried ginger. I added just a touch of maple syrup to sweeten the popsicles and some cranberries at the end. Enjoy these delicious popsicles to celebrate the season!
