Homemade Fruit Popsicles

There’s no better way to beat the heat than with a popsicle! We made these homemade fruit popsicles with just a few fruits and the kiddos loved them. Read on to see how you can make your own fruit popsicles to celebrate the end of your summer!

My kids & I loooove watermelon. I always have some in the fridge (& usually a backup waiting to be cut!) during the summer. It’s our absolute favorite! We decided to make popsicles with the watermelon for a refreshing treat, & we added fruit for some extra pizzaz. Homemade popsicles are a fun activity for the kids, they’re so easy to make, & it’s an all-natural treat, so why not?! It’s a fun way to get the kiddos in the kitchen learning some math & science in the meantime. Follow along with our tutorial, or scroll down to see the recipe card.

Here’s how we made our homemade fruit popsicles:

We started off by juicing about 1/4-1/2 of a watermelon. You can do this in a juicer or in a blender. I then let Gio & Gabi add the fruit to the molds. We filled each mold about halfway with blueberries & diced strawberries, but you can use any fruits you want!

I poured the watermelon juice to the fill line & added the sticks. The nice thing about the molds we have is that the tops have a straws so they can sip the juice as it melts into the bottom. I found these similar ones on Amazon.   popped the molds into the freezer for a 4-5 hours. Gabi asked me every 15 minutes if we could go check & see if they were frozen, haha.

They were so excited when they were frozen & ready to eat! We enjoyed our snack outside in the beautiful summer weather. Their favorite part was the fruit bits :)

It’s the perfect summer treat & they’re so simple to make! If you make them, be sure to tag me in your photos on social media, I’d love to see!
