Triple Berry Ice Pops

Ice pops are a fun way to cool off from the heat and humidity of summer, but those calories from sugar can add up fast. Keep calories under control -- and give yourself an antioxidant boost -- by making homemade fruit ice pops. The 100 percent apple and orange juices help the berries puree easier, and the almond extract adds a tad of natural sweetness. Add a little sugar or low-calorie sweetener if you prefer sweeter pops. Use any combination of in-season berries -- raspberries, strawberries, blackberries or even blueberries.

Makes 12 ice pops

6 ounces fresh raspberries
6 ounces fresh blackberries
1 pound fresh strawberries
2 tablespoons orange juice
4 tablespoons apple juice
1/8 teaspoon pure almond extract

1. Rinse all berries and drain. Remove stems and green leaves from strawberries.

2. Place all berries in a blender along with orange juice, apple juice and almond extract.

3. Puree until completely smooth.

4. Pour into 12 ice pop molds. (Use molds with 1/2-cup capacity each.)

5. Freeze thoroughly.
