Frozen Mango, Kiwi, Raspberry Pops



Cool off with these homemade frozen fruit pops made with fresh fruit puree.

Aren't these the prettiest things! I just love the vibrant colors you can get from using fresh fruit, and the flavors are refreshing and sweet.

Use any fruit you wish, I added a little sugar because my fruit tasted a little tart, but you can leave it out or use stevia if you prefer.

  3. If I use stevia would I use the same amount as you did sugar?

    1. I think you could add the stevia to taste. If your fruit is very sweet, you may not need it at all but if the fruit isn't sweet, add it until you like the flavor.

    2. I agree, sometimes I don't use a lot of sugar or Truvia when fruit is involved. :)

  4. There is a conversation chart on the truvia website. It's really helpful when a recipe calls for sugar but you want to use a substitute instead. Here's the link:

    2. I tried these using peaches instead of mango. They were great!

  9. Wow these look delicious! But if fruit are 0 pts why are these 2 pts? Should they be 0 pts if I don't use the sugar?
    Thank you!

    1. I have the same question! :) Thanks

    2. If you put this into recipe builder, it's not 0 because fruit has calories. I am not sure if WW would consider it 0, ask at your next meeting.

      Delete
    3. It must be because of the addition of the sugar, although honestly I can't see how it could possibly be 2 pts. The WW website is so kookie. It doesn't make sense to me half the time. I would guess less than half a point per because of how little sugar. I am going to make these with nectarines in place of mango. Nectarines are crazy sweet right now. Thanks so much for the awesome recipes.

    4. Fruit does not count ever...even in recipie builder the fruit will count as 0 points. However, fruit does have calories so WW suggests that you do not consume over 5 "free" or 0 point+ items or fruit per day. But everyone is different so listen to your body and go with that.

  10. Looks sooo good! Just a question - if I used different fruit, would I still freeze each layer for the same amount of time? I have strawberries and thought I could use them, but wasn't sure if the time in the freezer was for the specific fruit or just the layer. Thanks Gina!

    1. Yes, same amount. It's just to get that rainbow effect and to get the stick to stay in.

    2. Awesome, thank you! Also, just tried the overnight oats this morning - delicious! Thank you for getting me out of my breakfast rut!

  11. These look delicious! We're going to try them tonight in our Zoku popsicle maker so we can get instant popsicle gratification! :)

  12. Genius idea with the cups! Now I don't have to go out and buy a popsicle mold.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Would you recommend straining the raspberries and kiwis for the seeds?

    ReplyDelete
  14. If you don't add sugar, do you still need to use water or would you just use the fruit puree?

    ReplyDelete
  15. Is there any way to reduce / remove the seeds from the raspberries?

    ReplyDelete
  16. You could run it through a sieve and use a spoon to scrape it.

  17. How long do you think these will last in the freezer?? I have hundreds of mangos and trying to find ways to use them before they go bad!

    ReplyDelete

    1. At least a few months! You could do it with all mango if you wish to use them up.

  18. Gina, THANK YOU, so, so much for having the new AND old Weight Watchers points on each of your recipes! No one else seems to do it! If all the delicious food didn't keep me coming here (which it DOES!), that totally would! Thank you! Thank you!

  19. These are SO delish! I'm back on the WW bandwagon again and I have zero guilt having these as a little treat after dinner. My 2 year old daughter loves them too! I've made several of you recipes and there honestly wasn't one thing that didn't taste amazing! Thank you!!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Made these today & they are amazing! I used agave instead of sugar. They are so delicious! Love your blog!

    ReplyDelete
  21. How would the fresh fruit compare to using frozen? Just in case I can't find fresh mangos but still want to make it with mangos. My kids are going to love these!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Everyone else is looking for Autumn-warm-you-up recipes, but I live in Hawaii and I'm still LOVING the frozen goodness recipes! THANK YOU!!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Does anyone have an idea of what to use instead of mangos?

    ReplyDelete

    1. Peaches would give you the same color.

      Delete
  24. I would love to try these, but my son is allergic to mangos. is there any fruit you suggest to substitute for the mango?

    ReplyDelete
  25. Hi, wanted to know where I can find those bowls? I love asymmetrical bowls and would love to add these to my kitchen!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Thank you for this idea. My 8 month old was enjoying this as much as I was.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Do you need to make a simple syrup? or is that just for taste? If the fruit is sweet enough, can I just blend the fruit and freeze the mold? Or is the simple syrup needed to hold everything together?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It's just for sweetness, I found the fruit too tart without it.

      Delete
  28. They not only look great but taste even better. We used cherry instead of rasperry, it tastes ok but i like the cherrys better fresh...

    ReplyDelete
  29. can i use all frozen fruit and if so, do i thaw them out completely first?

    ReplyDelete
  30. What size cups did you use?

    ReplyDelete
  31. Just made these today and what a hit they were with my family! Delicious and easy. I am posting on my Facebook page- "Betsy Cooking with Pampered Chef" and linking here. Thanks, again, for a wonderful recipe!
