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.

  1. I just joined WW a couple weeks ago (partially because of your website), and I’ve been scouring your recipes. I just came across these pops, and heard the mention about ice cubes. I think I’m going to try these in your fresh iced tea to add a little extra sweetness!

  3. Just wondering why this recipe isn’t marked as gluten free? Is there something I’m missing?

  11. 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!

  12. 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.

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

  14. Made them last night.. frozen and ready for breakfast this morning! Absolutely LOVED them. Thanks for sharing!

  15. I can't wait to try this. It looks so…..good!!

    Thank you for sharing.

  17. My siblings are gonna love these! Thank you for such an amazing twist to classic frozen pops!

  18. 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.

  19. What an inspired idea – it's Winter "Down Under", but I still can't resist trying these! Thanks 🙂

  20. Thanks Lucy!!

  27. I made these over the weekend. What a fun idea!! Thanks for a great way to get more fruit in my diet.

  28. They look so refreshing and good!

  29. 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……….

  30. These are a great summertime idea!

    Linked back to it: http://spoonfuloflaughter.wordpress.com/2011/06/19/sunday-inspiration-the-first-edition/

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

  32. 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??

  33. That is truly heaven in pops…great idea to make this frozen fruit pops for the weather here is horrible hot and humid. Thanks Gina for sharing this delicious summer treat 🙂

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

  35. I love white Sangria!

  36. 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 ….

  37. OMG, the fruit pops look simply delish!
    Thanks for sharing.

  40. Thanks Gloria 🙂

  41. Your little girl is adorable! Who cares about looking at the fruit pops when we could look at that cute little one! 😉
    Best,
    Gloria
    P.S. Oh, OK, I might try the fruit pops too – they are very healthy looking!
    P.P.S. I also want to try your chicken sausage sauce in the post below… looks YUMMY!

  42. This looks GREAT! Might be a good use for all that fruit we're getting these days at the farmer's market.

  43. Oh my goodness, I'm so glad Heirtoblair mentioned your onion rings, I love your site. I'm headed back now to do more drooling and recipe planning!

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

  45. 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!

  46. 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!

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

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

  49. 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!

    • 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.

  50. Does the baby come with the fruit pop!? Your daughter is gorgeous Gina! And the pops look mouth watering. Definitely a special treat in the summer. And for 1 point?! You can't beat that.

  51. These are so cute!!! My kids would love them….going to make them soon. Thx for sharing! 🙂

  52. Your daughter is adorable! I love all the fresh fruit in these! It has been so darn hot here that I have been craving cold treats!

  53. cooooool , loved them

  54. Looks like someone is having such a yummy dessert! 🙂
    They are cute and must have been delicious 🙂 Gonna make them any time soon!

  55. So cute. I love that the fruit is left chunky. We will add these to our summertime list.
