Please note: Ripe fruit is much sweeter and more flavorful. So be sure to only use fully ripened fruit in your ice pops for the best flavor.

Also note: When fresh ripe fruit is not in season/available, you can use frozen fruit to make ice pops. However, it's best to allow the frozen fruit to thaw first, before blending it. That's because, you may need to add more liquid to get the frozen fruit to blend properly and this will change the flavor and texture of your ice pops.

    These look great! We love making our own! Is there a difference an 100% pure unfiltered organic apple juice and regular 100% apple juice you see at all the stores? If so how can i tell the differces the ingedient list is just apples. Is that ok. The sugar amount seems very high! Thanks!

    • Kelly says

      Hi, Megan, the unfiltered apple juice is not filtered like regular clear apple juice, so it contains some of the pulp in it. If it’s unfiltered juice, it will be labeled as such, but you can use either. We prefer the taste of unfiltered, it’s not as sweet tasting. And if you’re sensitive to fruit juices, then you can by replace the juice with water, but you may need to use more honey to taste. Blessings, Kelly :)

      Thanks, Marcy! This is one of the easier pop recipes – just toss the ingredients in the blender and pour into ice pop molds. Once you do it, you’ll not want to eat the store bought ones. :)

    These pops look yummy! I am going to try the pineapple mango ones! I wonder if they are less expensive to make than buy!? This is my first visit. It was nice to meet you! I’m going to follow you and check out more posts!

      Hi, Sylvia! Hope you enjoy these as much as we do. And yes, it’s definitely less expensive to make your own healthy all-fruit organic ice pops than to buy them. And not only that, you can avoid unwanted additives. I buy organ fruit when it’s in season (less expensive then) and cut it into portions needed to make the pops, then freeze it. I can then defrost a bag and make pops throughout the summer, even if the produce is no longer in season. For instance, as one example … I just found mangos as my farmers market for 10 for $2.00, so I cup up a bunch and froze them so I can use them in pops and other recipes throughout the summer. Blessings, Kelly
