Keep Cool with 3-Ingredient Fruit Pops

Not only are they delicious, but making fruit popsicles with your kids makes for a fun and easy summer activity, too. They’re healthier than store-bought popsicles, with nothing artificial; just fresh fruit and juice. I use these popsicles trays from Amazon.

How to make Fruit Pops:

Combine Ingredients: Add fruit to your popsicle mold (I use this one). Fill the mold with apple juice, leaving at least ⅛ in headspace and place the popsicle stick inside. Freeze fruit popsicles for at least 6 hours or overnight.

    This one is perfect for our littles! I love that I made it and I know exactly what ingredients went into it! I’m ok when they want a “treat” after dinner with this one! 🙂

  3. I made this for my Girl Scout Troop as a snack, and they loved it! They even wanted to know the recipe to make it themselves!

  4. Thank you so much for these recipes ! I was looking for something healthy for my kids to enjoy as a treat. I already had some molds from my first foray into homemade pops but needed some help on recipes. I tried the strawberry peach yogurt and they came out GREAT. I had one and now I can’t wait to make more. The kids thought they were awesome and now they want to help me make them.
