Chunky Fruit Popsicles Recipe

Jul 15, 2015

Summer is in full swing, which means it’s officially popsicle season! 

We love making our own popsicles at home—it's easy to make a batch of beautiful, delicious and healthy chunky fruit popsicles.

There’s nothing better than a freezer stocked full of homemade frozen treats when a heat wave hits! 

You Will Need:

  • summer fruits, sliced thinly (we used kiwi, strawberries, pineapple and peaches)
  • small berries (we used frozen blueberries)
  • pure white grape juice (pineapple juice or lemonade would work too)
  • popsicle moulds

A plate of fresh fruit, including kiwi, strawberry, mango and pineapple.


1.  Line popsicle moulds with the sliced fruit. Place the berries in the centre of the moulds to hold everything in place nicely.

2.  Fill the popsicle moulds with pure white grape juice.  Pour gently and slowly to help keep the fruit in place.

Enjoy! Happy summer!
