Homemade Layered Fruit Popsicles

Posted by Didi Gorman on

Guess what I’m holding!

That’s right. A homemade popsicle!

Made entirely from fresh strawberries and orange. No sugar, no water, nothing else.

I chose very ripe fruit since it’s naturally sweeter.

My only challenge was to find ‘sticks’ and persuade them to stay upright. See picture below for a creative solution…

For lack of better equipment, I used plastic containers instead of molds. My conclusion is to opt for quite narrow containers that are relatively easy to ‘squish’. (It would help the popsicles out of the molds later)

If you have better equipment than mine you should go for it by all means.

Here’s how I made it:

Sweetened by: fruit only

Special equipment: stick blender/blender, squeezer, 4 plastic spoons, 4 small narrow freezer-friendly plastic containers, 16 elastics

Preps: 5 minutes (+Total freeze time: 5 hours, divided to 2 ½ hours + another 2 ½ hours)
Makes: 4 popsicles

You will need:
A large handful very ripe strawberries, stems removed
1 very ripe large orange, freshly squeezed, with pulp, no seeds

How to make it:
1. Blend strawberries and pour evenly into containers.
2. Place a spoon at the center of each container. (Creating a cross from 4 elastics and placing the spoon in the center of the cross will help keep the spoon upright. See picture)
3. Freeze for about 2 ½ hours.
4. Squeeze orange and pour on top of the strawberry layer. Leave at least an inch unfilled at the top.
5. Freeze for another 2 ½ hours.

Variations with other fruit:
Mango, raspberries, and watermelon are also suitable for these popsicles.

Before I let you go, I thought I’d include this final picture. I find it hilarious! You should have seen my kids’ faces when they spotted me taking this picture on the porch! They thought it was some kind of an artistic experiment I was undertaking… Took me a while to explain to them this was their dessert!

On this very fruity note, I will wish you a wonderful summery weekend!
