DIY Fruit Popsicle Recipe

Part of the fun of the summer is running around outside and getting super hot and then cooling down with a delicious and refreshing popsicle to eat out on the driveway. GAME CHANGER in my house! We swapped out those store bought popsicles with our more delicious and healthier alternative homemade fruit popsicle recipe!

Many of the foods with all of those artificial flavors and colors may taste okay, but they aren’t really the best for us. That is why I really adore these homemade popsicles. I know exactly what is going into them and I feel great about giving them to my kids!

Who invented the Popsicle

I had to share this story, well, because it is totally awesome! Did you know that the popsicle was invented by accident! True story! An 11 year old boy named Frank Epperson, had mixed some soda powder and water and left it outside with a wooden stirring stick in it. It was a cold night and the mixture froze! He woke up in the morning and found this delicious concoction that he started to sell around his neighborhood. Then…history was made! He patented the ideas and summers have never been the same!

This healthy and homemade fruit popsicle recipe will keep you cool and refreshed all summer long! We chose to make a Raspberry, Mango and Pineapple Fruit Smoothie Popsicle, but you can easily add in your favorite fruit for this easy DIY popsicle recipe!
Prep Time 10 mins
Freeze 5 hrs
Total Time 10 mins

Ingredients
  

  • 1 cup Raspberries Frozen
  • ½ cup Mango Chunks, Frozen
  • ½ cup Pineapple Chunks, Frozen
  • 2 cups Milk divided
  • ½ cup Sugar optional

Instructions
 

  • Place the frozen raspberries in a blender.
  • Add 1 cup of the milk to the blender, and blend until smooth.
  • Put a ½ cup of frozen mango chunks into the blender.
  • Pour in ½ cup of frozen pineapple to the mixture.
  • Add in the other 1 cup of the milk, and blend until the mixture is thick and smooth. It will be about the consistency of a smoothie.
  • This is a very natural tasting popsicle mix. If you would like to add some extra sweetness to the popsicle, add in a ½ cup (or to preference) of granulated sugar at this point, and blend to combine.
  • Pour the popsicle mixture into popsicle molds, and place into the freezer for a minimum of 5 hours.
  • Once the popsicles have set, place the molds in a shallow dish of warm water (not for too long or they will get melty) to release the popsicles from the molds more easily, and enjoy!
