Rainbow Superfruit Popsicles

Rainbow Superfruit Popsicles

Chill your popsicle molds by placing them in the freezer for a minimum of 20 minutes before beginning this recipe.

In a blender, purée ½ cup of the coconut water with the frozen blueberries and maqui berry powder. Note that each blended layer should be thick and very frosty — if it's not, add more frozen fruit. Taste for sweetness and add a little stevia to slightly oversweeten the fruit — about 5 drops should do the trick for each round. Blend the mixture once more. Divide it between 10 (or desired quantity) popsicle molds, filling each 1⁄5 high. Place the molds in the freezer while you prepare the next layer. (Rinse the blender in between creating each of the 5 layers.)

Combine ½ cup of the apple juice and the frozen strawberries in the blender and purée. Blend in about 5 drops of stevia, or to taste. Fill each of the molds by another 1⁄5. Return molds to the freezer.

Purée the remaining ½ cup coconut water, ¾ cup of the frozen mango, and the goji berries together. Sweeten with stevia. Fill the molds another 1⁄5 and return to the freezer.

Next, purée the orange first to liquefy, then add the frozen pineapple and camu berry powder and blend. Fill the molds another 1⁄5 and return to the freezer.

Purée the remaining ½ cup of apple juice, the remaining ¾ cup mango, and the baby spinach. Fill the last 1⁄5 of the molds and add popsicle sticks. Return the molds to the freezer to freeze completely, about 1 hour.


Best Fresh Fruit Rainbow Popsicle

It&rsquos summertime and the temperature is rising!! Time to make some homemade popsicles to cool off. We have a few recipes we will share with you but this fresh fruit rainbow popsicle recipe is one of our favorites! You can use fresh or frozen fruit, I just use what is the freshest and what is on sale basically. 😉 (originally published 6/16)

There is always fresh fruit at great prices during the summertime so pick up a few extras and make these fruit pops!

You just need a blender and popsicle holders along with your fruit and the kids can help!

Any shape or size will do and you can use your popsicle holders over and over again&hellipgreat investment if you have kids.

It&rsquos also a great way to introduce your kids to new fruits (and sometimes you can sneak in a veggie or two blending a piece of carrot with your mango) in a fun way. 🙂

You can use either frozen or fresh fruits, just use what you see that looks good in the produce section that are different colors and then suppement with frozen fruits for the others.

For these frozen blueberries and raspberries were used along with fresh kiwi and mango (but you can use other fruits you love). Here is the entire recipe for rainbow popsicles.

This is what you need for this rainbow popsicle recipe

Seriously that is all you need, and a blender and popsicle molds of course.

Tips for Making Rainbow Popsicles

Layering the smoothies in the mold is easy. Use a spoon or tablespoon to scoop the smoothie mixture into the mold. It’s natural for the layers to blend a bit, but I have noticed that spooning the smoothies into the mold versus pouring the smoothie in from a glass leaves better results.

Once the molds are filled, freeze the popsicles overnight.


To get the rainbow popsicles to release from the mold, fill your kitchen sink with room temperature water. Place the mold in the water, making sure the water does not go above the top of the mold.

Allow the mold to sit in the water for a few seconds.

Begin to wiggle a popsicle free. If it feels tough, allow them to set in the water a few more seconds.
Once all of the popsicles are removed from the mold, enjoy or wrap the extras in plastic wrap and return to the freezer.


Here’s the best part, most likely you’ll have leftover smoothie (unless you’re making 30+ popsicles at one time) so you can enjoy a rainbow smoothie while you wait for your rainbow popsicles to freeze!


Tips

  • Use a thin funnel or a turkey baster to fill the tubes.
  • Leave about 1 inch between your juice and the top of the tube and pinch out the air before sealing – this allows the filling to expand as it freezes without bursting the plastic.
  • Make tubes from plastic zip top bags or vacuum sealer bags or get these. If using zip top bags you will want to cut off the zip first as it won’t seal properly on the edge.
  • Place on a dry baking sheet to freeze.

How to make fruity popsicles

When I think of homemade popsicles, bright red strawberry pops are the first to come to mind! And it’s probably because fruit and popsicles are just a match made in heaven.

To make healthy homemade popsicles with fruit, you’ll need to pick a fruit! Most berries work beautifully in popsicles, though you can also use mango, pineapple, kiwi, banana, peach, or watermelon.

Then add your liquid and your sweetener. I love using juice to give the popsicles even more flavor (especially a squeeze of fresh lemon juice!), but you could also use water or milk. Finally, add a touch of sweetener if it’s needed.


Tips

  • Use a thin funnel or a turkey baster to fill the tubes.
  • Leave about 1 inch between your juice and the top of the tube and pinch out the air before sealing – this allows the filling to expand as it freezes without bursting the plastic.
  • Make tubes from plastic zip top bags or vacuum sealer bags or get these. If using zip top bags you will want to cut off the zip first as it won’t seal properly on the edge.

Creamy Rainbow Smoothie Popsicles

Like most kids, my boys love when I make anything rainbow, like this rainbow cake and these rainbow (tie dye) cupcakes. They didn’t care for my rainbow detox soup at all though hahaha.

I knew that when I made these rainbow smoothie popsicles that they would be a hit. We love smoothies around here and that’s exactly what these popsicles are, frozen smoothies!

Hey you just can’t go wrong with fresh fruit and yogurt for a quick snack or breakfast. Sometimes I even add in some creamy oatmeal for some extra bulk.

Rainbow Smoothie Popsicle Tips:

1.) You really can’t go wrong with this recipe. I’ve listed some measurements below but really you can use as much fruit and yogurt as you’d like. I prefer to use more fruit since it creates a darker color. Most smoothie pop recipes calls for equal parts fruit and yogurt. Do what lifts ya skirt!

2.) ADD SUGAR or use ridiculously ripe fruit: I know what you’re thinking. “Who needs added sugar, I never add sugar to my smoothies” Well, neither do I, but as with anything that’s frozen, it doesn’t taste as sweet. Hence why melted popsicles takes so syrupy sweet, yet when they are frozen the sweetness is perfect. I always over sweeten a tad for this exact reason.

3.) Use fresh fresh or thawed frozen fruit: Anytime I’ve tried to make this with frozen fruit I have to add a bit of fruit juice to get the fruit to blend properly. And then with the added fruit juice the layers just don’t seem to stay separated.

4.) Want a creamier texture? Try blending in some banana! Tastes great with all the other fruits as well.

5.) Swap out the fruits for your favorite. No need to stick to what I have listed. Instead of mango you can choose peaches, instead of kiwi try spinach. Don’t like blueberries? Try blackberries or raspberries instead of strawberries.

“I wish I lived next to the end of a rainbow so that I could just climb up the rainbow and look at the colors.” My son has a fascination with rainbows, like most kids do. They’re colorful, they’re vibrant, and the way they appear in only the most specific circumstances makes them exciting and fun, a special treat. That’s why my son was so excited to make these easy rainbow popsicles with me! (And trust me when I say they’re SO easy that your kids can make them!)

To start these refreshingly easy rainbow popsicles, dice fruit into small pieces. Smaller fruits, like blueberries, can be left whole. You’ll want to account for as many of the rainbow colors as possible– we went with strawberries and watermelon for red tones, pineapple for yellow, kiwi for green, and blueberries for blue. You could add in mandarin orange pieces for orange or dice purple grapes for hints of purple, but just do your best to get as much as you can, even if you can’t use every hue.

If you have an older child, they can help you dice the items with a plastic or child-safe knife. Otherwise, you can pre-chop these and get their help with assembly!

Have your child layer the fresh fruits inside of your popsicle mold. These will work with any shape mold, so get creative! No popsicle mold? That’s okay! Paper cups work just fine, too.

Start with your red fruits, then add oranges, yellows, greens, and blues, in rainbow order. Just remember ROY G. BIV to figure out the right order to layer them in.

To hold the fruit together, top with liquid for hydration until your fruit is covered and your mold is almost full. I like to use coconut water because it’s packed with electrolytes, but cactus water or even a clear-colored fruit juice will work perfectly. You want to be sure your liquid is clear or mostly clear so you can easily see the rainbow spectrum in the popsicle!

Place the sticks in your popsicle molds, then freeze your popsicles until they’re solid and easily removed. It should only take a few hours, depending on the size and thickness of your mold, but I always like to freeze mine overnight just to be safe.

Then, enjoy! (And maybe share with a friend).


How to Make All Natural Rainbow Popsicles

It's probably best to make these popsicles the day before, because they take a bit of time to freeze since you're working with layers.

I really like the idea of these rainbow popsicles because there's no artificial dyes or weird ingredients in them. The rainbow in these ice pops is made with cranapple, white grape, and strawberry kiwi juice.

However, you can use any flavor combo you want, just make sure you have a few different colors!

We love these popsicle molds with the larger handles because they are super easy to hold for little hands!

Just be sure not to overfill them!

Or, if you want to create a more nostalgic feel, you can use these reusable silicon ice-pop molds like these.

STEP ONE

Take your ice pop molds and fill each of them up 1/4 of the way with cranapple juice. Place upright in the freezer for about an hour before adding the next layer.

STEP TWO

Remove the molds from the freezer and pour the white grape juice above the cranapple layer. Only take up another 1/4 of the mold. Place upright in the freezer for about an hour before adding the final layer.

STEP THREE

Again, remove the molds from the freezer. Pour the strawberry kiwi juice above the white grape juice layer. Only take up another 1/4 of the mold. The mold should have some room for the liquids to expand as it freezes.

If you fill the molds too high, you will get a mess in your freezer. The crystalline arrangement in frozen water is what causes the mess! Plan ahead, and don't fill your molds up all the way. :-)

STEP FOUR

Push the stick all the way through all the layers to allow the last juice to fill the hold and solidify for easy removal. Again, place the molds in the freezer for at least an hour. It may take longer depending on the temperature of your freezer.
