Whenever it’s hot outside, you know you need a popsicle, but not any popsicle will do — they’re not all created equal. What you want is a homemade fruit popsicle. First, because they’re cheap to make. Second, because they’re all natural. Third, because you can make them your way. What else do you need!

It all starts with a good popsicle mold, so get one today. If it’s made of silicone, even better, but any mold will do. Then, you want to visit your farmers’ market and get the ripest seasonal fruit. Now you’re ready to make fruit popsicles!

What goes into homemade fruit popsicles?

Popsicles are actually incredibly easy to make. You need a flavoring agent, in this case, fruit, a sweetener, which can be everything from honey to Splenda, and a liquid. This one can be plain water, milk or any milk alternative.

The proportion matters, though, and there’s no universal recipe for fruit popsicles. Why? Because every fruit is different, and they all have unique sugar levels. 

What you want to do is blend your favorite fruit (or fruits) with water or milk in roughly equal parts. Then taste it and adjust the sweetness. The rest is up to the freezer. So, pour your mixture into the popsicle mold and wait for the frozen treats to solidify.

Homemade Fruit Popsicle Ideas

Here are a few fruit combinations we love. And don’t forget to come up with your favorite combos; that’s the fun part of making popsicles at home!

  • Strawberries and cream. Use milk and fresh (or frozen strawberries) and sweeten to taste.
  • You can make this one as chunky as you want.
    Banana and chocolate. Yes, this combination is delicious! Use a ripe banana and add cocoa powder to a milk base for this one.
  • Lemonade popsicle. A classic pop made with freshly squeezed lemons, water and granulated sugar. Add some mint leaves to make it even more refreshing!
  • Coconut and mango pop. Use coconut milk, shredded coconut and ripe mango for a tropical delight you’ll love.
  • Kiwi and Cucumber popsicle. Using cucumbers, kiwi and water, you’ll end up with a great fruit popsicle — one that’s as nutritious as it is tasty. The sky’s the limit!
