Kids and adults alike both love these fruit popsicles. It’s like having a fresh fruit smoothie, only frozen on a stick. Since these popsicles are pure fruit (not fruit juice) and have no sugar added, they make a cool and refreshing treat just about any time of day. Perfect for those hot summer days!
Things You Need:
(1) Homemade Applesauce (steamed or baked apples, pureed into a sauce). Approximately 2-3 apples.
Super Cooking Tip: You can combine just about any fruit to make these yummy popsicles. All you need is the main ingredient “applesauce”. The applesauce (which is just cooked & pureed apples) actually holds the popsicle together and gives it a smooth consistency. I also sometimes add “pear” sauce (aka cooked and pureed pears) to the base. The only fruit that needs to be cooked is the apples (and/or pears), the rest of the fruits can be fresh or frozen and added directly in the blender.
(2) At least a handful of 1 or more of the following fresh or frozen uncooked fruits:
Note: For the popsicles pictured in this post, I used homemade applesauce, fresh strawberries, fresh blueberries and fresh cherries. During the winter months (which is still technically summer in Singapore), I usually use frozen fruits to make my popsicles since it is more cost efficient and readily available. The quantity of the fruit doesn’t matter – add as much or as little of each fruit as you like.
(4) Popsicle Molds
(5) A Blender
Step-By-Step To Make These Yummy Popsicles –
Step 1: Combine the applesauce and fruits in a blender with approx 1/4 to 1/2 cup of water.
Step 2: Blend until smooth.
Step 3: Pour the mixture into popsicle molds.
Step 4: Freeze for 4-6 hours or until completely frozen.
Step 5: Enjoy!
Claps! 😀 Sooo impressive! I wonder if I can do this with other fruits too! I’m going to try this at home. Thanks for sharing!
Thank you for your nice comment. Mangos & apples are also very popular at our house. I honestly just throw a bunch of fruit in the blender along with the applesauce. Just make sure the fruit is “ripe” if you are using fresh fruit. Ripe fruit gives it a much better flavor. Let me know how they turn out. 🙂
