Ever since I made these, the girls have been harassing me for them…daily. But, I don’t blame them, they really are good, and so simple to make. When making fruit popsicles, I decided I didn’t want to add juice. For one, I don’t stock juice in the house, and secondly, why add a bunch of extra sugar when its not needed. These are whole fruit popsicles, with a touch of sweetness, thanks to the stevia, but I’m sure you could omit the sweetener all together.

I used frozen fruit, as I happened to have it in my freezer, and it really cut down on the freezing time. I made these mid-morning and they were frozen solid by after school at 3pm.

Not only are these good for the kiddos, I happen to like them too! They remind me of sorbet, but not ridiculous sweet like most sorbets.

Refreshing, healthy, and perfect for a summer snack. I hope you give them a go.  Flavor options are endless really, post which combo you’re going to try in the comments below! :) Next I’d like to try Strawberry/Banana as I have a boat load of brown bananas in my freezer.

Recipe type: Snack
Yield: 16
Ingredients
For the Strawberry Layer
  • 2 cups frozen strawberries (fresh works too!)
  • ⅔ cups water
  • 2 packets stevia (or 1 Tbsp sweetener of choice)
For the Mango/Pineapple Layer
  • 1 cup frozen mango chunks (fresh works too!)
  • 1 cup frozen pineapple chunks (fresh works too!)
  • ⅔ cups water
  • 2 packets stevia
Instructions
  1. Using your blender or food processor, puree the strawberries, water and stevia together until smooth (I used my Blendtec).
  2. Divide the mixture between your popsicle molds. I used BPA free plastic molds...each mold holds 8 popsicles.
  3. Rinse your blender and repeat the process with the mango/pineapple layer.
  4. Add your sticks or tops to the mold and freeze. If you use frozen fruit, it will only take a few hours to freeze, if you use fresh fruit, it will take about 6+ hours.
  5. To get the popsicles out of their mold, just run the molds under hot water for about 20 seconds, then they should pop right out.
Notes
Switch up with whatever fruit is your preference.
