Kick start the year with these deliciously refreshing fruit pops from La Receta de la Felicidad! Make your fruit purées well in advance, assemble the ice pops a couple of days ahead and unmould right before dessert time for a spectacular and calorie-free finish to a lavish New Year lunch or dinner. My Resolution 2015: Make healthier food choices!
