These Easy Fresh Fruit Popsicles are almost too pretty to eat! The keyword in that sentence is almost!

These colorful and healthy treats are so easy to make.

Just slice up your favorite fresh fruits, fit them into a popsicle mold, fill it with any clear liquid, freeze, and enjoy!

I first made these popsicles in May of 2017. Since then, these have been made several times in our home. When I first made these popsicles, I used Premier Protein’s clear protein drink. But, any clear juice would work just as well.

A friend of mine who worked in a cafe in Mt. Hood, in Oregon, made these fresh fruit popsicles using the same fruits I did. He used apple juice and sprite instead of the clear protein drink I used to fill them up. That summer, he decided to sell those popsicles for $3 each at his cafe and he told me that they were sold out every time they offered them on the menu! Not too shabby eh?!

You will need the following ingredients to make these:

  1. strawberries,
  2. blueberries,
  3. kiwi,
  4. mangoes, and
  5. clear liquid like apple juice, coconut water, or green grape juice.

You will also need a set of popsicle molds and popsicle sticks.

What are the types of fruit you can use in fresh fruit popsicles?

There really aren’t any hard and fast rules as to what fruits you can and cannot use.

I have used strawberries, blueberries, kiwi, peaches, mangoes, papaya, watermelon, honeydew melon, cantaloupe, and plums. I prefer to use softer fruits as compared to more crunchy ones as they are delicious and juice to bite into even when frozen.

What are the types of liquid you can use to make these popsicles?

I like to use clear liquids as they show off the fruits best. I have made these popsicles with apple juice, coconut water, and green grape juice. You can also use lemonade or limeade. If you want to give these a bit of a protein boost, then a clear protein drink (like Premier Protein’s clear protein drinks) would work.

However, if you would like to add in a clear soda or sparkling water, please do so.

These Easy Fresh Fruit Popsicles are as much fun to eat as they are to make.

When I first shared these popsicles, my intention was someone somewhere would find this and have a blast making these. This is a fantastic recipe to get kids to help out with. Not only is it easy but it is a fun recipe too.

When I first made these fresh fruit popsicles with my daughter, she especially enjoyed stuffing the fruits into the molds to make these “fruitsicles” AKA Fresh Fruit Popsicles!

We used to love to nibble on these popsicles after a long, hot hike. When my daughter was younger, we made it a point to hike a few trails around our neck of North-ish Georgia and the Atlanta Metropolitan Area.

There was this one year when my daughter suggested we amp up our hiking game. Instead of simply going on a long hike on the weekends, she suggested we try and squeeze two hikes in during the week. During the week, the trails, like this one in Mulberry Park, tend to have fewer people on them and more wildlife (as you can see from the picture collage below). Hiking on these trails midweek makes the hike feel like a true escape from the hustle and bustle of traffic-encrusted Atlanta streets.

  1. WoW, the fruitsicles look so much fun and a perfect snack for summers. I love premier protein and we usually have it for breakfast most days but I never knew they came out with a clear drink. I’ll have to get the new protein drink and try these fruitsicles soon.

  2. What a fun summer recipe! I love how colorful and bright these popsicles (err, I mean fruitsicles!) are. And then to see that you used protein drink as the base? So smart! Also, I loved that video/photos from the hike. I just watched the video, and I think I fell asleep a bit. It was so quiet and peaceful out there! I hope you enjoy the week sans parties and graduation events. Just relax and enjoy the beginning of a long awesome summer! 🙂

  3. This are the prettiest pops I ever did see, Shashi! I can’t stop looking at them! Love how super easy they are to make and how colourful and jam packed with goodness they are! Pinning and definitely trying soon. Enjoy your break from the kitchen (we all need that every now and then, don’t we?) And congratulations to your daughter once again. I’m sure there’s exciting times ahead 🙂 Have a wonderful weekend! XO

  4. Yay for a little peace and quiet for you too! I definitely understand where you are coming from. I mean, parties and celebrations are fun and all, but they are also a liiiiittle bit draining (and by a little, I mean a lot). I can’t think of any better way to slow down than with an absolutely GORGEOUS popsicle or 3! Seriously, Shashi, these are just stunning! I am obsessed with all the colorful fruit! AND these pack a protein punch!?! I mean… GENIUS!!! I need these in my life! Pinned! Cheers, lovely! Sending you all the love and hugs! xoxo

  5. I’d love to try out some of those hiking trails with you both Shashi.

    And then I’d love to get stuck right into these bright colourful fruit filled protein fruitsicles!

    Have a great weekend, already looking forward to the cookies on Monday! 😀

  6. Enjoy your cooking break this week Shashi! I think we all need those from time to time 🙂 And yay for ice pops! It’s definitely been warm here and I can use plenty of ice pops right about now!

  7. A bit of a time away is always fun and that sounds amazing, 2 hikes in a week. These pops are simple and so much fun. The prettiest summer treat.
    I’m enjoying your hiking trails and your adventures. Enjoy your break Sashi.
    xoxo

  8. This looks absolutely delicious! I can hardly wait to make this for my family! I know commenting about the beauty of a blog is a bit commonplace but I just have to say that I love your blog. It’s so inspiring. If you find me hanging out a little longer than the usual reader, I promise you I’m not a stalker :o) I’m just really enjoying your blog!
    Have a great day,
    Kelli M. Riebesehl

  9. I love the pics of hiking in Georgia — the landscape is a bit different than our urban LA setting. The popsicles look awesome – it’s so hot here and I’m constantly craving popsicles and/or ice cream. Thanks – and happy 4th!
