Red, White & Blue Frozen Fruit Puree Shooters

Cool down for the 4th! Red, White & Blue Frozen Fruit Puree Shooters filled with fresh fruit & a star of whipped cream! At littlemisscelebrationOn a hot, summer day, there’s nothing like a frozen treat to satisfy our sweet tooth and cool us down! I’m loving all of the fabulous, patriotic treats everyone has been sharing, so I had to make one! These red, white & blue frozen fruit puree shooters, filled with fresh fruit and a little star of whipped cream, were fun to make and totally fun to eat. The fact that we had these on the hottest day so far this season definitely gave us a lot of laughs, too! Everyone was ready with a spoon; plus I’m pretty darn sure I heard a few “Help me….I’m melting!” wisecracks in the background. :)

I’m going to say, right at the start, that this probably is not something you’d want to make for a big crowd. For your family or a small group, these are a great July 4th treat – or change up the fruit flavors and make them anytime over the summer. I think kids would get a total kick out of these!

Last week, I shared a Strawberry Orange Ginger Cooler and talked about making fruit puree, which is easy as apple pie! For these frozen fruit puree shooters, I went back to my silicon ice shooter mold.

Inspired by my favorite Easter egg, these Caramel Pecan Milkshake Shooters in Chocolate Cups are a creamy, sweet and totally fun treat for all our big and little bunnies!

First, I made strawberry puree and blueberry puree. For the white layer, I used Welch’s 100% White Grape Juice.

Once the purees were made, I spooned a layer of strawberry puree into the shooter molds and let it freeze overnight. Yes, I was a little messy and cleaned up the mold before I put it in the freezer! :)

Next, I added a layer of white grape juice and let that freeze; the juice froze more quickly than the puree. Last, I added a layer of blueberry puree and let that freeze overnight. I made another set, reversing the order, with the blueberry puree in the mold first and the strawberry on top. Whatever fruit you add last will be the bottom of your frozen fruit puree shooter cup.

Now, the challenge comes in unmolding the shooter cups! The fruit puree does not freeze as rock-solid as the juice. Very carefully push each individual cup out of the mold, actually turning the mold cavity inside out. Full disclosure here, of course, the puree in the very bottom of some of the cups broke off. Out of 12, I successfully unmolded 8 cups that were almost, but not quite, perfect. That’s not too bad, right?

If you make these and have “broken” fruit shooter cups, put the broken cups and pieces in a freezer bag. Don’t have a shooter mold? That’s totally ok! I’ll be sharing another super quick and easy way to enjoy frozen fruit puree next week – and for anyone who makes these shooters, you can use the broken pieces!

One you have your shooters unmolded, pop them back in the freezer. Slice some fresh strawberries and wash some blueberries. Fill the cups with sliced strawberries, blueberries and top it with a “star” of whipped cream. Even when they get melty and slushy, they are so good, refreshing and fun!

When I used the shooter mold to make these Caramel Pecan Milkshake Shooters and molded chocolate cups, one of my very kind and sweet readers loved the idea and decided to make dark chocolate cups to fill with chocolate mousse (such an awesome idea!) Unfortunately, she had a devil of a time unmolding those cups and we put our heads together to try and figure it out. I had no problems at all when I made mine, so I need to get the bottom of that! I’ll be trying to recreate those cups with the same dark chocolate candy melts soon, so we’ll see what happens.

What do you think of these frozen fruit puree shooters? Are you making any red, white & blue treats for the 4th?

I’m so happy you stopped by today! We’re expecting another scorcher around here today. Have a frozen treat and stay cool!
