100% Fruit Juice Homemade Popsicles

IMG_9403This recipe has become a neighborhood favorite among the kids that live in my condo complex!  I made it one day for my son and soon, the whole neighborhood of kids were surrounding him hoping to taste these homemade popsicles.  They are tropical in flavor and a great nutritious alternative to store purchased, artificially flavored, and sugar loaded options.

Recipe: 100% Fruit Juice Homemade Popsicles 

Ingredients:

(purchased in single serving sizes from Trader Joe’s)

– Mango Smoothie

– Orange Juice

– Tart Cherry Juice

For this recipe, I’ve used anything from IKEA cups with a plastic spoon inserted, to ice cube trays with toothpicks, to make-at-home reusable popsicle kits.  

1. Take a 32 oz thermos or measuring cup  and fill it 3/4 of the pre made mango smoothie (approximately 1.5 cups).

2.  Next, add 1/2 of the orange juice, approximately 1 cup.

3.  Lastly, add 1/4 cup of the tart cherry juice and mix all the juices together until combined.

4.  Fill your popsicle container of choice with this tropical juice mix and freeze for 2.5 to 3 hours, or until frozen through.

The popsicle my daughter is seen eating here was another recipe that I made which included pureed blueberries and tart cherry juice.  She loved it also!

ENJOY!!
