Rainbow popsicles are naturally sweet, loaded with real fruit, and so simple to make that your kids can almost make them by themselves!
- Red fruit (such as raspberries, strawberries, or pomegranate)
- Orange fruit (such as mango or mandarin orange segments)
- Yellow fruit (such as pineapple)
- Green fruit (such as kiwi or green grapes)
- Blue fruit (such as blueberries)
- Purple fruit (such as grapes or blackberries)
- White grape juice or coconut water
- Popsicle molds
- Prepare your fruit by washing it, removing any skin it might have (for things like pineapple, oranges, and mango) and then cut it into small pieces. Cut the pieces as small as you would if you were serving them to a toddler (the chunks will still be in the frozen popsicle, so cut them small enough that they won’t be a choking hazard). I like to arrange the fruit on a plate in a rainbow order so if my kids are helping so they can easily see the color pattern.
- Fill (or have your kids help fill) the popsicle mold in rainbow order. You can start at the bottom of the rainbow or at the top, it doesn’t matter. Gently press the fruit into the mold so that it’s full but not so full it’ll be solid fruit.
- Carefully fill the rest of the mold with white grape juice or coconut water. Add the popsicle stick and freeze until solid (8 hours to overnight).
- To remove the popsicle from the mold, run the outside of the mold under warm water and gently pull on the popsicle stick until the rainbow popsicle is released from the mold.
