Strawberry Lime Mint Spritzers and Fruttare Bars

I grew up in Florida. In case you missed the news flash, Florida is hot pretty much all year long. Summertimes are brutally hot and humid.

Brutally hot and humid days desserve cool treats and cool treats are just what my brother and I got when we were growing up. Ice cream, fruit bars, popsicles, those were a few of our favorite treats! My favorite frozen fruit bars were the cherry and strawberry flavors – anything red was for me. To this day, my go to color for frozen fruit bars are the red ones. Luckily, Fruttare makes excellent fruit bars that are actually made with real fruit and fruit juice!

I had this silly habit when I was a kid. I liked to let my ice cream or fruit bars melt and then slurp up the liquid. I’m not sure what the reasoning behind this method was. But I’m sure it had to do with the flavor of the frozen sweet treat tasting better to me when in its melted state.

Fast forward a few years, give a gal who likes to cook a box of tasty strawberry Fruttare bars and you have one tasty recipe waiting to happen. After I picked up a couple boxes of Strawberry Fruttare bars from my favorite grocery store, I got to thinking, why don’t I put to use my former love of melted frozen treats and make something tasty with the Fruttare bars? So I used some of the Fruttare bars to make these tasty Strawberry Lime Mint Spritzers.

  1. Ooooooo… these sound so good, Julie! Love the strawberry and lime combo! And how clever to use the Fruttare Bars to make these! :) Pinned & sharing.

  2. YES!!! This has to be the best way EVER to enjoy a popsicle. I MUST try those Fruttare bars. Pinned!

  3. I love this idea of using popsicles to make drinks

  4. This is such a creative idea, Julie, and I love that a childhood ‘quirk’ (if I may say so!) inspired it. They look so pretty, too. Love that beautiful shade of pink and the mason jars just make them even more perfect-looking.
    P.S. I’m a little envious of your warm upbringing. I can’t imagine living in a place that never gets cold. Although I did just sit outside here in Perth Australia to have my breakfast. You could never in a million years do that in the middle of winter in the UK, unless you wanted to get hypothermia.

    • Thank you, Helen!

      Heh, I kinda say the same thing about people who live in places that do get cold and that actually have four seasons. In Florida, our season is always Summer or Spring. The weather is pretty nice during the Fall and Winter but it rarely gets cold. I think it is more like Spring during those seasons.

      Hope you are having a great weekend and thank you for stopping by!

  5. What a creative drink, Julie! These sprizters look so summery and refreshing! I love this idea!
    I hope you had a fantastic 4th!! xxx

  6. Sounds like this one took you back to kiddie years :) i WISH it was hot here – mid july and were in the 50’s :/ I’d drink this anyways!

    • Oh wow, that is crazy! Haha, I am sure you would be yearning for cooler weather if you were here in FL. Not only is it hot, it’s super humid so it feels like a sauna outside! Thanks for stopping by, Francesca!

  7. What? Florida is hot? ;) It is so true though, come summer, all I want is cold, COLD, treats! And fruity. Love the Fruttare bars and how you used them in this recipe! Pinned!

  8. I am not used to hot hot, so if I was I Florida this time of year I would be begging for these ice cold yums. However the good news is that they will be just as tasty in merely hot weather, where I live. Ha!

    • You sure would! Not only is it hot, its super humid. The humidity makes it feel hotter than it really is. Seriously, you feel like you have been sprayed with a water hose when you’ve only been outside for a few minutes! Enjoy the merely hot weather where you are, Carol. And thanks for stopping by. Hope you have a great week. :)

  9. I just want to slurp a few of those down! They are so pretty! Anything pink with limes is irrisistible in my opinion!! :)

  10. You are a genius!! Using popsicles to make drinks, what a great idea!!! I have a few (freezer burned) popsicles right now that I will have to blend up. Love the strawberry and lime combination. I hope you had a great 4th of july weekend!

    • Oh yeah, you should totally use them up in a drink recipe. You won’t even taste that freezer burn! Thanks for stopping by, Zaianb! I had a great 4th and I hope you did too!
