Fruit popsicles don’t get any easier or tastier than these watermelon strawberry popsicles! A healthy summer dessert recipe that kids and adults love!
Is there anything better than an ice cold popsicle on a summer day? These whole fruit popsicles are so refreshing, and they are beautiful, too! The berries and watermelon make a gorgeous shade of pink.
Are popsicles healthy?
It really depends on the type of popsicles you eat. If you are buying artificially flavored and colored popsicles that have lots of corn syrup in them, then no, those are not healthy.
But if you’re making your own popsicles at home with healthy, whole fruit, then yes, those are a healthy summer treat.
How do you make fruit popsicles?
It’s so easy! Just blend some watermelon, and some strawberries, and then fill your popsicle molds. Stick them in the freezer, and in a few hours, you will have deliciously fruity popsicles to enjoy.
Of course, you will want to make sure that the fruit you choose is very sweet and ripe for the best flavor. You can improvise – use a variety of berries, or different melon, or some citrus fruit.
Whatever fruit you choose, the steps are the same – blend your fruit, pour into the molds, and freeze.
How to make creamy fruit popsicles:
You can also try adding avocado or full-fat coconut milk for a creamy texture. Avocado would add some nice healthy fats to the popsicles.
