A few weekends ago, I took my kids for a walk and we were passing by neighbour’s house where kids were happily sucking onto bright green and red popsicles. The day was hot and popsicles definitely were hitting a spot. Immediately my mind started racing and it hit me – why don’t I make the same bright and sweet ice pops with fruit?! I don’t know why but I never thought of that, no idea why?! Why oh why LOL.

After we got home, I quickly went through my fruit platter and freezer. Got a few mint leaves from my herb planter. Whipped up 3 batches of cantaloupe, melon and strawberry fruit puree. Froze it in popsicle molds and voila. By 6 PM my kids were enjoying the same colourful but healthy homemade popsicles.

Healthy Homemade Popsicles

Healthy Homemade Popsicles

Ingredients

  • 4 cups fruit or berries of choice*
  • 12 large mint leaves
  • Maple syrup or raw honey, to taste (optional)**

Directions

  1. In a powerful blender, blend all ingredients until very smooth. Pour into 6 popsicle molds and freeze for 3 - 4 hours.
  2. To remove popsicle from the mold, hold it under hot running water for a few seconds (plastic needs more time than stainless steel to come off).
  3. Storage Instructions: Freeze for up to 3 - 4 months.

Notes

*To make 3 kinds (2 each) of popsicles, I used heaping 1 1/4 cups of 3 kinds of fruit. **You might need or not to sweeten your popsicles. Really depends on a fruit or berries and their ripeness and quality (organic fruit is more flavourful and sweeter!). I didn't add any sweetener to honeydew and cantaloupe ones but strawberry needed a touch.

    I love pineapple popsicles best, but many other fruits are great, too.

    I love making banana ice cream! I think it would work great in Popsicle molds also.

    How genius is this idea! I love the whole stainless steel set and would love to get one for myself. I would make a strawberry mango pop! I’m sure the flavor ideas are endless especially in the summertime. Thanks for sharing with us Olena!

    Whatever the green ones are… LOL. Probably some Lime variation… not sure. The only popsicles I’ve ever had were storebought.
