This Mixed Berry Popsicle Recipe is very easy to make, and they taste great too! My kids request these throughout the year but are definitely a favorite during the summer! This recipe doesn’t have any dairy or refined sugar, so they are a healthy snack or dessert!
Homemade popsicles are very easy to make, all you have to do is blend the ingredients and freeze! A great way to make your own popsicles that don’t have any refined sugar or extra ingredients. This recipe relies on the sweetness of the fruit itself and some maple syrup of course. I also use coconut cream to give it a creamy texture without using any dairy products!
When washing my fruit, I like to use a mixture of 2 parts water to 1 part vinegar. This helps breakdown any bacteria or mold spores. Put the berries in the mixture and swirl them around to make sure they are coated. Then I let them soak for a minute or two and then rinse. I try to do this shortly after buying berries because organic fruit tends to go bad pretty fast. Despite what others may say, I feel like this helps make them last longer!
I really like this popsicle recipe because it is an easy snack option for kids! Sometimes I feel like all my kids want are snacks, so I need a lot of options for them! Especially during summer break! I make these popsicles in molds that are about the size of a ring-pop so they are able to finish them in one sitting. It is better than trying to save a half eaten popsicle for a toddler! If you know, you know.
