Summertime and ice pops are the perfect pair! They go together like peanut butter and jelly, or chips and salsa.


I remember growing up, we always had a freezer full of fruit juice ice pops that come in the plastic tube. I swear I ate them every day. So, naturally, I wanted my daughter to grow up with those same memories that I hold so dear.

So, a few years ago, I started making fresh fruit popsicles, and now we have our very own stockpile in our freezer.

Are homemade fruit popsicles better than store-bought?

It may be convenient to buy a box of orange popsicles from the grocery store rather than making them yourself. But convenience doesn't equal healthy.

Even some of the healthier brands of fresh fruit popsicles have refined sugar in them.

My pineapple orange popsicle recipe uses honey as a sweetener. It's still sugar, but it's natural sugar.

I love how refreshing they are, and I enjoy choosing my own ingredients. Plus, you'll need just FOUR ingredients to make them!
