How To: Make Homemade Whole Fruit Popsicles

These whole fruit popsicles are as easy as 1-2-3!

As a kid, we’d fill up our popsicle molds with sodas and other sugary juice from the fridge. While these fruit popsicles require an extra step or two, it is SO worth it and healthier by-far.

Prepare the fruit by chopping it up into small, bite-sized pieces. The fruit should easily fit in the popsicle molds without being smushed,

Pack the molds with your mixed fruit until they are about 80% full. Fill in any large gaps with blueberries or other small pieces of fruit. 

Pour apple juice, water, or your juice of choice into each mold. Make sure to leave about a half of an inch at the top to prevent spilling.

If your mold requires popsicle sticks, insert them now. Be sure not to push in the sticks too far so they are easy to hold onto.

Freeze until solid, at least 2-3 hours. If the popsicles won’t budge when you’re ready to eat them, place the mold in a warm water bath for 15-30 minutes until they can wiggle free. Be careful not to pull the sticks out!

Enjoy your popsicles right away or store them in the freezer until you’re ready to eat them.

    1. These look amazing and so yummy. We are trying a health kick in our house, as we eat too much sugary stuff and my hubby is diabetic!

      We talked the other day about making our own ice lollies and these look so refreshing.

  5. I used to make homemade popsicles all the time when I was a kid, but I haven’t done that in years. I think this is a sign that it’s time to make that happen again! Especially with the heatwave that we’ve currently been dealing with. I feel like I’m melting lol
