Homemade Fruit Popsicles

Earlier this week I shared one of my favorite money saving tips in my Instagram stories-making homemade popsicles using 100% fresh fruit!  With the warmer weather approaching, everyone loves a good refreshing popsicle, am I right?!  Ethan is holding his two favorites here, mango/orange🍊and watermelon/lime🍉.  I use Zipzicles BPA free popsicle pouches, found on Amazon (I pay $13 for 100 pouches) and I also buy their colorful sleeves which are amazing and keep little hands from getting cold!  With about 3 cups of blended fruits (total cost, $2-3), I can easily make 12 pops, way less expensive than store-bought, made with all fresh produce and nothing added 🙌

TIP: when pouring liquid into the zipzicle pouches, use a small funnel! Insert it right at the top and hold with one hand while pouring liquid in with the other.  This works especially well for thicker smoothie-type mixes.

Here are my littles favorite popsicle recipes and if you would like more easy recipes for these, let me know and I’ll include them in this blog post!

🍊mango/orange: 1-10 is bag frozen mango chunks + 1-1.5 cups freshly squeezed oranges. Purée on high and add more OJ to thin the mix as needed.

🍉 watermelon/lime: 3.5 cups watermelon chunks + juice of 1/2 lime and purée on high speed.
