fruit pops

Tasty and colorful without any harmful food dyes, these fruit popsicles are super easy to make and fun to eat. Use as much organic fruit as possible. Recipe adapted from the Whole Life Nutrition Cookbook.


3 cups watermelon puree (about 1/4-1/2 of a melon) or another type of melon puree
about 2 1/2 cups of fresh fruit. Here is one of the many options (mango is also a delicious addition):
1/2 cup fresh blueberries
1/2 cup fresh cherries, pitted and chopped
1/2 cup chopped fresh strawberries
1-2 kiwis, peeled and sliced
1 peach or nectarine


1. Cut the watermelon into chunks and puree in blender until smooth. strain out seeds if any.
2. Set out about 12 popsicle molds (you may need more or less depending on the size).
3. Fill each halfway with the fruit mixture then pour in the watermelon puree until filled. Place a popsicle stick in each and freeze for  6-8 hours.
4. To serve, run molds under warm water until the popsicles release.
