Fresh fruit popsicles

All this rain and fog has got me wishing for summertime weather and food :P

I have been reading other blogs that have made these yummy treats and figured I should give it a try. I have made homemade popsicles before, but just with juice. Anything frozen on a stick is FUN and since I have two kids that will eat them up, why not?

These are really easy to make, and the possibilities are endless. Strawberries are in season where I live right now, I decided on a strawberry puree for the top and the white part is soy raspberry yogurt, and finished off with the frozen wild blueberries I have in my freezer.

Because I made the puree so thick there was no need to wait between layers for freezing, I just poured layer over layer inserted the stick and froze for about 4 hours. ( it would be even better with coconut milk, but you would have to wait between freezing's.

strawberry puree

1 cup strawberries
1/2 tbsp organic cane sugar
3- 4 tbsp apple juice

blueberry puree

1/2 cup blueberries
1/2 tbsp organic cane sugar
3-4 tbsp non-dairy milk


  1. I made something like this last week with all the strawberries. Instead of sugar I used a banana and apple sauce. Yum Yum

  2. Fresh fruit popsicles any day is a winner

  3. I have been wanting to make popsicles but I do not have the equipment or space. Soon , very soon. Great looking though.

  7. 3 Studies REVEAL Why Coconut Oil Kills Waist Fat.

    The meaning of this is that you actually burn fat by eating coconut fats (including coconut milk, coconut cream and coconut oil).
