Home-made Fruit Popsicle Recipe
These home-made fruit popsicles are a perfect recipe to beat the heat on a hot, sunny day. They are much healthier than the popsicles that you buy from the store because they are made from 100% fruit. This fruit popsicle recipe has absolutely no added sugar, and it’s super easy to make with only 5 MINUTES of prep time.
All you need is 4 cups of fresh fruit, a blender, and some popsicle molds. I used these. This recipe makes the perfect amount to fill them and they seem quite durable. If you already have some, just use what you already have.
These have a tiny cup at the bottom that catches the drips which helps prevent sticky hands.
I chose to use watermelon and strawberries, because those are two of my favorite fruits, and they are super healthy.
First, you largely chop your berries and watermelon. I simply chop the top off the strawberries and cut them in half, and I just scoop out the watermelon with a spoon. You do not have to dice it small or work hard here. Leave it in big chunks and let the blender do the work.
Tip: You will want to get a seedless watermelon, or to try to remove the seeds manually.
Next, add two cups of each fruit to the blender, and a small squeeze of lemon, if you’d like a little extra tartness. Then, blend until it is a thick liquid.
Finally, pour into popsicle frames and let freeze overnight.
Important: Leave about a half an inch at the top for the liquid to expand when it freezes.
They will look like this when they come out of the freezer.
Unless you are the hulk, do not try to immediately remove them from the mold. Wait about a minute or run a little bit of water over them, and they will slide out easily.
