With Purim coming up in just a couple of weeks my mind has started to fill with holiday treats. Purim is a time of indulgence, where people eat too much, drink too much, and all around have a wonderful time. I love making the holiday special for my family, and that does mean treats, but I also like it when I can celebrate the festivities with healthier options as well. These hamentashen fruit pops are absolutely ideal for celebrating in a festive way. My kids love anything on a stick, and these pops turn regular everyday fruit into a fun treat. I hesitate to even call this a recipe, any fruit that can be cut into flat shapes will work well. I used assorted melons for these, but pineapple would be great as well.

Healthy Hamentashen Pops
Cut the fruit into 3/4 to one inch slices. Cut one piece of fruit using a large triangle cookie cutter. Using a smaller triangle cookie cutter, cut a smaller triangle out the inside of of the larger one. Repeat the process with a piece of fruit in a contrasting color. Switch the inside triangles so that each larger triangle has a different color smaller triangle inside. Carefully press a lollipop stick into the fruit triangle, making sure it goes into the smaller triangle as well. Repeat to make the desired number of fruit pops
