Homemade Fresh Fruit Popsicles Recipe

RSS

One of our favorite summer pastimes at Grant Central is making delicious homemade fresh fruit popsicles. They're such a healthier alternative to most of the store-bought varieties and they are SO easy to make!

In this episode of #TheRicheLife, #miniboss and I are showing you how to make our favorite flavors--strawberry and pineapple-coconut--and a yummy mix of the two as well. Our red, white and blueberry pops even made a sweet cameo too (see what I did there?!).


The basics that you'll need to make these and most other flavor combinations are fresh fruit and a liquid of your choice (juice, coconut water, etc). Yogurt is a delicious option too if you want creamier pops! We also keep agave nectar on hand to sweeten if needed. 

You can buy popsicle molds from most grocery stores, and of course on Amazon.com. Since the molds vary in size, the measurements below are approximations. Taste as you go and definitely adjust these recipes to your preferences. If you have leftovers, you can use them to make smoothies!

SERVINGS: 6-8 (depending on mold shape and size)

ACTIVE TIME: 10 minutes

FREEZE TIME: 5-8 hours

INGREDIENTS:

Strawberry Popsicles

  • 16-18 ounces fresh strawberries (rinsed, hulled and sliced)
  • 3/4 cup apple juice
  • 1 tablespoon agave nectar (optional)

Pineapple-Coconut (Pina Colada) Popsicles

  • 1 fresh ripe pineapple peeled and cut into chunks
  • 1/4 cup coconut cream 
  • 3/4 cup coconut water
  • 1 tablespoon agave nectar (optional)

DIRECTIONS:

1. Add all ingredients to blender.

2. Blend until smooth.

3. Taste and add agave nectar if needed. Sweeten to taste.

4. Use a funnel to pour liquid into molds, stopping about 1/2 inch from the top to allow for expansion during freezing.

5. If using the popsicle holders that come with the molds, insert into the molds immediately after pouring. If using popsicle sticks (our favorite), wait about 30 minutes after putting the molds in the freezer to insert into the almost-frozen popsicles.

6. Freeze popsicles for 5-8 hours.

7.  Run warm water over molds for about 5 seconds to loosen popsicles.
