Frozen Fruit Pops



Fresh fruit with a splash of juice makes a fresh and healthy snack. Use whatever fruit you're heart desires. A perfect summer treat!

These are so simple and so darn cute, my one year old probably had just as much fun playing with them as she did eating them. Super easy to make and no fancy gadgets required, you'll need small 5 oz disposable cups and some craft sticks.

  6. These look so delicious and colorful! I love food with a lot of color, it looks way more appetizing.

    I just got over a really bad sinus infection and have been getting sick a lot last week. My appetite still haven't fully come back yet, but these look good enough to make me want to go make them and have them ready when I get off work tonight. Plus, we just bought a bunch of fresh fruit.

    Great idea!

    1. sorry to hear about your sinus infection, I was plagued with them until I started using a netti pot - you can find them in most of the big drug stores. Basically you are washing out your sinuses and getting rid of anything that makes them inflamed - so much better than chemicals - also white vinegar acts as a disinfectant and an anti-inflammatory - if your air is really dry, that can set off your sinuses too - I put a little in my humidifier and my cpap machine - wow - what a difference! I just saw the date on your post, I hope you don't keep having the sinus problems, many people do, but these tips may help, good luck.

  7. I don't have orange juice, but would Sunny D would as a juice substitute?

  8. I love the idea of studding it with all the fruit. How yummy & creative.

  9. Gina - these look delicious. I was thinking you could also make them in ice cube trays with no stick, and drop into a nice summer drink!

    ReplyDelete
  10. Isn't she a cutie!

    Any fruit juice would work, even Sunny D if that is all you have.

    Jillian- great idea making them into ice cubes!

  11. The ice cube idea sounds awesome and like it'd be cool to do for a party.

  18. So that's the tomato-poking culprit. She is absolutely adorable.

    The pops look really good and I'm glad you posted this. I'm thinking sangria with fruited ice cubes. Just got some star-shaped cupcake "molds" and think this recipe in those molds floating in a pitcher of white sangria ....

  19. This is perfect! I think we'll have these at my daughter's birthday party instead of icecream! =D

  21. Have you tried to make these without the stick and keep them like an italian ice or do you think it would melt down too quickly??

    ReplyDelete
  22. Now, I know what to do with all the empty yogurt cups I had stashed somewhere.

  24. My 6yo and his friend made these yesterday - we forgot to eat them so they are eating them for breakfast! How cool to give them an "dessert: for breakfast and not worry about it being totally inappropriate!

    As an aside - I ended up adding more than a tbsp of juice..........

  33. I rarely comment for anything but I have to post one for this recipe. I just hosted a picnic with a good number of guests ranging in ages from 2yrs to 75 yrs. We even had some food allergies added to the mix. This dessert was a HUGE hit and loved by everyone. Thanks a million for all you do. My family greatly appreciates it.

  38. These are gorgeous and look delicious! I featured them today on Friday Finds. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

  39. Might be a silly question. But could I just use frozen fruit, put in a cup and add the juice and freeze???? Or some frozen and some fresh?? That way I could use up the frozen fruit I have already and organics are cheaper that way.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Cute idea! I will make these tonight. That's a good idea for my chickens, too. I'm going to make them some during these hot days!

  41. Can I use these great pictures of the fruit pops in my newsletter?
