Whole Fruit Popsicles Ingredients

  • Fruit. Choose your favorite fruits. If you’re using not so sweet fruits (e.g. blue berries, grapefruit) fruits add sweeter liquid to balance the flavors. Or add sweeter fruits (e.g. melon, pineapple).
  • Liquid. Add you favourite liquid. Clear or slightly colored liquids look very pretty. For example coconut water, grape juice, apple juice, cranberry juice, fruit or herbal tea – cooled, or lemonade.

They’re an ingenious way of using up left over fruit and you’ll make them in an instant (freezing time not included!)

These fruit popsicles are also healthy because they’re made with whole foods. So you can enjoy a healthy sweet treat without worrying about the risks of processed food.

You can use virtually any combination of fruit and liquid you like, or follow this recipe for a delicious and colorful popsicle. These ice pops are so pretty, you’ll want to post it on Instagram before you take a bite.

  • 2-3 cup fruit (sliced or whole small berries)
  • 2 cups liquid (juice, water, tea, or lemonade)


  • Cut larger fruits into ¼ inch slices.
  • Pack fruit into the molds. Press and line the sides and bottom of the mold with sliced fruit. This adds structure and makes the ice pops pretty. It also allows you to insert the ice pop stick into the middle of the ice pop, between the layers.
  • Drop smaller fruit such as blueberries between larger pieces of fruit to fill the gaps. Use an ice pop stick or butter knife to gently nudge smaller pieces into gaps. Add as much fruit as you are able to fit into the mold.
  • Fill the molds with juice, tea, lemonade, or water. Insert an ice pop stick into the middle of each mold between the layers of fruit. Place in freezer for at least 6 hours.


If making an ice pop with less fruit, add some of the fruit and fill the mold about ¼ full (small fruit) to ½ full (larger slices of fruit) with liquid. Place in the freezer for about 30 minutes or until the layer has set. Then add more fruit and pour in the remaining liquid.
