Rainbow Fresh Fruit Popsicles Recipe

Since most of the rainbow recipes on this blog are some form of sugary candy, let’s try one using nature’s candy, shall we? As soon as the weather gets warmer, I start to crave strawberries, watermelon, cantaloupe, and kiwis like crazy. The list of fruits I love is very long. This ice pops recipe is the perfect way to incorporate a variety to literally eat the rainbow.

Fruit popsicle recipe notes and FAQ

Do not over pack the fruit

Make sure you don’t put too much fruit into the mold. You need to allow space for plenty of liquid to freeze around the fruit chunks.

Too sweet or sugary?

If you’d like to control the sugar a little, use a clear sugar-free juice option. You can also use coconut water or sparkling water as an alternative.
