We love the way these fresh fruit popsicles turned out – they are healthy, made with lots of real fruit and so easy to make! The best part about them is the fruit flavor. Frozen fruit can be delicious on its own – add some flavored juice or water and you’ve got a winning combination!

4.  Place the top of your popsicle stick mold on. Now place in the freezer until frozen. Approximately 4-5 hours or overnight.

TIP: If you have trouble getting the popsicles out of the mold, let them sit out for a bit to melt and then gently squeeze from the bottom of the mold. You can also run a little bit of hot water over them.
