Ice pops are so much more fun and colorful to look at when they are layered! You can make these your own by picking 2 different colors of fruit to use. The original recipe for these ice pops called for 3 different types of red fruit and 3 different types of yellow fruit. I originally was planning on making that but when I got my fruit home, the mangos looked rather disappointing inside them and that bummed me out. Oh well, I just really simplified the recipe for you guys. I thought that was a tad too much on the wallet as well. I chose to use pineapple and strawberries for my ice pops.
Different Ways to make Ice Pops
If you don’t have any molds, there’s a couple of different methods you can use for making ice pops work. I have ice pop molds that I purchased off of Amazon. Love that website. Plastic cups are a great alternative to ice pop molds. Cover the molds with plastic wrap and stick the popsicle stick inside of that. Ice cube trays can be used, but to me, those are a tad bit on the small side for a popsicle. I’d want a hole ice cube tray full of them if that were the case, but it is possible to do with those. Fill those to the top like you would with the plastic cups. then cover them with saran wrap and put the stick inside them. Yogurt containers are also great. The yogurt itself could just be used frozen as a popsicle.
These ice pops contain no dairy! That’s right. They are made of natural ingredients using fruit and honey to sweeten them!
Tools used in this postPrint
2 cups of diced pineapple
2 cups of diced strawberries
2 tbsp of honey
2 tbsps of lemon juice
8 popsicle sticks
Cut the leaves off the strawberries and chop them up. Add 2 cups of diced strawberries to a food processor or blender with 1 tablespoon of honey and 1 tablespoon of lemon juice. Blend until smooth. Drain into a glass for pouring later on.
Clean out your blender or food processor.
Add the 2 cups of pineapple, 1 tablespoon of honey, and 1 tablespoon of lemon juice to the food processor and blend until smooth. Add to a glass for pouring.
Start pouring (see notes) the strawberry layer into 8 of the ice pop molds. You can eyeball this. It doesn’t need to be exact at the amount. Then pour the pineapple puree on top of the strawberry layer and repeat this step until all the ice pop molds are filled to the top. Insert stick into the middle of each ice pop mold and freeze for 3 hrs.
