Healthy Homemade Fruit Popsicles

Loading...

Healthy homemade fruit popsicles made with five ingredients or less! Four delicious recipes to choose from, strawberry, watermelon, lemon, and coconut. An easy and refreshing treat to help you cool down from the heat.

There’s nothing like enjoying homemade fruit popsicles on a hot day. The problem with the store-bought kind is that they typically contain high fructose corn syrup and artificial flavors. Not these! All my popsicle recipes are 100 calories or less and made with only natural sweeteners!

Warm weather means beautiful ripe fruit start to appear at the local market. With so many choices I decided to make four recipe variations. I hope you have as much fun creating these frozen treats as I did. Almost anything can be frozen, so grab your favorite ingredients and let’s play around!

Making homemade fruit popsicles are a fun way for kids and adults to experiment in the kitchen. It’s also an easy way to add more nutrients into your day without using refined sugar.
