Summer Cool Fresh Fruit Ice Popsicle Candies.....

As the heat is terrible, I wanted to have something chilled... My memory took me back to my childhood days, where we use to buy these ice popsicles candies (pepsi as they were called) after a long afternoon play with friends in the summer break. They costed 50 paisa those days and was made with artificial colours and flavors. But who cared... After that a good scolding at home.....
Here is a easy recipe of ice popsicles candy with fresh fruit pulp, lime juice and chaat masala... very simple to make, taste great and it's healthy for children too..... you can customise it with your choice of fruits and can add condensed milk or evaporated milk and sugar to make flavoured milk ice popsicles candies too. 

1/4 cup of each Fresh fruit pulp
(Mango, Strawberry, Black Grapes and Kiwi or any fruit of your choice)
1/4 tsp Lime juice for each pulp
1/4 tsp Chaat masala for each pulp
1/2 tsp Sugar for each pulp
1/4 cup Water for each pulp

You get ice popsicles candy bags, I made them at home with the help of a sealing machine.. 
Take any fruit pulp, add sugar, lime juice and chaat masala. Mix it well. Repeat the same process with the other fruit pulps. Take a popsicles candy bag and a big syringe. Fill up the juice into the syringe and transfer it into the candy bag or you can use a funnel to fill the juice into the bags. Fill 3/4 of the bag and tie a knot to the open end of the bag. Freeze it till it forms ice. Cut an edge and enjoy the hot summer afternoons...
