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

To be honest, they are so easy to blend up, we make a few, and they are eaten pretty quickly after that!

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

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

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

You can try adding things like chia seed, flax seed (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.” 🙂
