Stop buying sugar-laden Popsicles and make your own using nothing but fresh fruit

[anvplayer video=”4139274″]

Most Popsicles are basically just frozen, flavored sugar water. I don’t need my kids eating that garbage.

So I made some delicious pops out of nothing but fresh fruit. They were the perfect snack for Tyson and Marc to enjoy after taking a few runs down our homemade Slip ‘N Slide.

You will need:

  • Fresh fruit of your choice! I used:
    • Strawberries
    • Kiwifruit
    • Blueberries
    • Mango
    • Pineapple
    • Watermelon
  • Blender
  • Popsicle molds

Tip: If you don’t have Popsicle molds (or don’t want to buy them), paper cups and Popsicle sticks will do the trick.

Also, when you’re adding the fruit to the molds, pour slowly and gently! If you pour too fast, all the fruit will mix together, and then your Popsicles won’t look as pretty.
