Equipment

  • 12 Popsicle molds or Dixie cups with popsicle sticks. I use small popsicle molds and feel like they work the best.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups frozen bananas
  • ¼ of a fresh pineapple
  • 1 tsp Lemon juice
  • 1 cup fresh Blueberries
  • 1 ½ cup fresh Strawberries
  • 1 ½ cup Watermelon frozen
  • 2 tbsp Orange juice to thin out the mixture.

Instructions

Prep

  • Prepare ahead of time by freezing the bananas and watermelon, this helps create amazing popsicle texture by having these frozen.

Popsicles- Step 1

  • Start by putting several blueberries into each popsicle mold, fill molds about 1/3 of the way with the whole blueberries.
  • Then, in a blender, combine the frozen bananas, fresh pineapple and lemon juice.
  • **If at any point the fruit mixture isn't blending well, just add a TBSP or two of orange juice- it really helps to smooth the mixture out.
  • Next, spoon or pour the banana mixture into each mold, covering the blue berries. Tap the molds on the counter to make the banana mixture settle down into the mold. The molds should be about 2/3 full at this point.
  • Proceed to place the popsicles in the freezer for about 20-30 minutes to let that layer set.

Popsicles- Step 2

  • After that, blend the strawberries and frozen watermelon together until smooth. Spoon this mixture into each mold on top of the frozen banana layer, filling them almost to the top.
  • **If at any point the fruit mixture isn't blending well, just add a TBSP or two of orange juice- it really helps to smooth the mixture out.
  • Place the popsicle sticks into each pop and put them back in the freezer.
  • Freeze until firm, about 2-3 hours.
  • Once the popsicles have frozen solid, serve immediately and enjoy!
