Marie and Claire are obsessed with popsicles of all kinds. Marie asks for a popsicle almost every day. I try to find ways to say yes as much as possible to the girls, so when I saw these zipzicle bags for making your own freeze pops I was so excited to make my own no sugar added (but still sweet!) homemade freeze pops.

If you have little ones at home wanting to help in the kitchen, they can easily help you dump and pour into the blender. The process to make these freeze pops is very similar to making a smoothie!

Ingredients in Homemade Freeze Pops

This really depends on the flavor combination you wish to make!

Mango Orange Carrot

Mango: Mango is incredibly sweet and very high in nutrients copper, folate and vitamin C. 1 cup of mango contains about 67% of the DV for vitamin C!

Orange: Oranges are also high in vitamin C and folate among many other nutrients. Vitamin C helps our body with wound healing, skin health, and the health of our immune system.

Carrots: Carrots contain the antioxidants beta carotene and lutein, which can help promote eye health and rid the body of free radicals. Beta carotene is converted in our bodies to vitamin A, which is a fat soluble vitamin that is associated with eye health.

Strawberry Watermelon

Strawberries: Strawberries contain many antioxidants, vitamin C, manganese and folate. They are also composed of over 90% water, making them incredibly hydrating!

Watermelon: Watermelon is very high in water and also contains nutrients like vitamin C, potassium, copper and vitamin A (from beta carotene).

How to Make Homemade Freeze Pops

The method is simple! Combine the desired ingredients in a blender or food processor and blend until very smooth, usually about 2 minutes. Then use a small funnel to fill your freeze pop bag (or you can use any other kind of popsicle mold) and freeze for about 6 hours or until hard. Then serve!

Homemade Freeze Pop Tips

  • Only fill your freeze pop bag or popsicle mold to the fill line. You don’t want anything overflowing in your freezer!
  • I love the freeze pop bags for popsicles, because as it melts the liquid stays in the bag rather than drips down your hand to make a sticky mess.
  • You can use so many different flavor combinations. Essentially, you could take a smoothie recipe and then freeze it to make a popsicle!
  • Even though these have zero added sugar or sweetener they are SO sweet!
  • There is zero added sugar, so these are great for children and babies (who are beginning their food journey) of any age!
