Fruit Popsicles Flavors
For these fruit popsicles, I used organic blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, mango, pineapple, watermelon, and honeydew melon. For the blueberry popsicles, I added lemon juice in lieu of lime juice, and I add a little extra honey since blueberries tend to be more tart than sweet. Here are more fruit flavor ideas to make.
- Apple juice
- Grape Juice
- Honeydew Melon
- Mango Juice
- Pineapple Juice
- Watermelon Juice
Homemade Fruit Popsicles Recipe
- Fruit: Fresh fruit of your choice (mango, papaya, pineapple, watermelon, honeydew, blueberries, strawberries, raspberries or a mix of berries)

How To Make Real Fruit Popsicles
- Blend Fruit: Add chopped fruit to a blender with coconut water, lime juice and honey. Puree until well blended and the consistency is smooth.
- Freeze popsicles: Divide juice among the popsicle molds. Leave a little space at the top allowing the popsicles room to expand. Place in the freezer for about an hour then remove and place popsicle sticks in the molds and return to the freezer. Freeze for another 4-6 hours, or overnight, until popsicles are frozen solid.
- Serve popsicles: Run the sides and bottoms of the popsicle molds under warm-hot water for a few seconds so the popsicles will easily release from the mol
How To Make Rainbow Popsicles
To get the layered popsicles look, pour the mold with half of one fruit, then freeze for 10 – 15 minutes, then fill the mold to the top with another fruit. If you want more layers, add a few tablespoons of fruit at a time, freeze a few minutes, then repeat.
How Do You Get Popsicles Out Of The Mold?
To loosen popsicles from the molds, run the sides and bottoms of the popsicle molds under warm-hot water for a few seconds, then the popsicles will easily release from the mold.
What Is The Best Way To Store Popsicles?
- Store them in the popsicles molds themselves if you’re planning on eating them within a few days.
- Place them in an air-tight freezer bag or container, placing a piece of wax paper between the popsicles so they don’t stick together.
- Wrap each popsicle individually in wax paper and place them in an air-tight freezer bag or container if you want to store them for a longer period of time.
- Place each individual popsicle in an air-tight freezer bag. Remove as much air from the bag as possible before sealing it shut. Place all individual popsicles in bags in a large freezer bag
How Long Do Popsicles Last In The Freezer?
For best results, consume popsicles that have been stored in the freezer within 6 months. Popsicles stored for a longer period of time in the freezer will develop ice crystals and start to lose their flavor.
Is Coconut Water Healthy?
Coconut water contains multiple vitamins, minerals, and phytochemcials. Coconut water is rich with potassium, making it a great electrolyte beverage. Electrolytes are important for heart health and to prevent dehydration. It also contains magnesium, which is known as the “relaxation” mineral. Magnesium’s main purpose is to help the nervous system relax, and to help the heart relax between beats. Magnesium also helps with the formation of serotonin, which helps produce healthy sleeping patterns and may help improve mood.
