 Healthy Fruit and Vegetable Ice Pops

A few years ago on our creative site, we shared how to make fruit and vegetable ice pops. Our kids love these homemade fruit and vegetable ice lollies and they are a great way to get kids trying greens in a blended form!

My kids still request this healthy kid snack and so we make them regularly. They keep in the freezer for a while, so the great part is making a huge batch of different fruit and vegetable popsicles so that you always have a healthy frozen snack on hand.

To be honest, they are so easy to blend up, we make a few, and they are eaten pretty quickly after that! We love how easy (and less messy) the ice pop packets are, but you could use the same ingredients with a popsicle mold and stick.

These fruit and veggie pops are colorful and fun, frozen and delicious, and make the perfect healthy snack on a summer’s day. Your kids will love making them and eating them!

Can I use any fruits and vegetables to make ice pops?

We use fruit and veggie juices, frozen and fresh fruits, whatever we have on hand! So any fruit or veggie is worth a try as long as you can blend it into a puree that can freeze.

You can really get creative with healthy fruit popsicle recipes for kids. Pack in a mix of different vegetables and fruits to reach that 5-a-day target easily!

What else can I add to my homemade fruit and vegetable ice pop slushies?

You can try adding things like chia seed or flaxseed (we haven’t tried that, but don’t think they would alter the taste at all). You could also try making these ice pops as yogurt and fruit blends for a creamier texture.

We’ve shared below our go-to blends. What’s neat is that they make up most of the colors of the rainbow. So, we call these “Rainbow Ice Pops.” 🙂
