How to Make Fruity Ice Pops
To make fruity ice pops, all you need to make it is water, fresh fruit chunks, coconut water and popsicle molds. I recommend getting two or three sets of molds in case you want to make enough for a party.
Once your molds ready, simply slice up the fruit into pieces about 1/4″ thick. Much thinner and they won’t freeze well. Much thicker and they’ll be difficult to fit easily in the molds.
You’ll want to fill the molds up about 1/3 – 1/2 full with fruits before pouring in the coconut water. If you prefer not to use coconut water, you can use pure water instead.

Tips for Making the Best Fruity Ice Pops
- For the best tasting ice pops, try to buy fruits that look fresh, smell fragrant and have a supple texture. So that means not rock hard, and not deteriorating either. If you’re unsure, ask the supermarket to cut a fruit open to taste before you buy!
- Once you take them out of the freezer, they’ll last about 15 minutes before melting. Use a freezer pack or ice if you’re transporting them to the beach or a soccer game.
- You can make these ice pops can be made up to one day ahead. Any longer than that and the fresh fruit will start to discolor.
- Before freezing, rap the mold gently on a work surface to release any trapped bubbles.
