With hot summer days just around the corner, this is a perfect opportunity to try fresh fruit popsicles! Be prepared for the heat with a healthy snack that is just as cool and refreshing as it is good for you. A popsicle made out of only fresh fruit has all the benefits of fruit and it’s fun to eat.
This is great for picky eaters who won’t eat a lot of fruits or vegetables….either children or adults. (we all know someone). I’m not sure this even qualifies as a recipe, it’s basically frozen fruit made into a fresh fruit popsicle.
Why make fresh fruit popsicles?
I have picky eaters in my house and I’m always trying to get them to eat more fruits and vegetables. My son is particularly picky and has issues with texture. I decided to try to change the texture of the fruit and make it into a refreshing treat.
Using one fruit or many different fruit combinations will all make a great fresh fruit popsicle. Use this recipe as a guideline and create your own version. Along with fresh fruit, you can use freshly squeezed lemon, coconut water, or any juice.
Do you add anything else to these fresh fruit popsicles?
I didn’t want to put any extra sugar or sweeteners in it because I wanted to see if fruit by itself would be enough…I like plain fruit. So, I tried and it worked. These were successfully sweet enough and they were enjoyed by everyone.
This is by far the easiest recipe ever.
Originally I thought that making fruit popsicles by blending tons of fruit was going to be too time-consuming, a lot of work, and way too much cleanup. Using a good blender makes it easier. I made all of these flavors in less than twenty minutes.
Fresh Fruit Popsicle
- 1 cup blueberries
- 1 cup blackberries
- 2 mangos
- 1 cup cubed seedless watermelon
- 3 kiwi fruits peeled
- Clean and dry all fruit. I blended each separately until they had a liquid consistency. The watermelon will liquefy while the mango will be creamy.
- Pour the blended fruit into Popsicle containers. Mine made two each for a total of 8.
- Place in freezer and freeze a couple of hours or until frozen.
