Tropical Fruit Popsicles (No Added Sugar)

Any Otter Pop fans out there? Those sweet and icy popsicles carried us through many a hot summer day as kids, and we’ve now given them the ultimate upgrade! These tropical-tasting icy treats are sweetened entirely with whole fruit (yes to fiber!), naturally electrolyte-boosting (hello coconut water), and SO refreshing!

They’re perfect for afternoons by the pool, post-exercise hydration, or as a cool treat after a long day outside. Just 6 ingredients required! Let us show you how it’s done!

How to Make Tropical Fruit Popsicles with Real Fruit

Hydration makes you feel good and watermelon wins the award for being one of the most hydrating fruits out there. Not only that, but studies suggest it may improve exercise performance and reduce muscle soreness. Plus, yum! For all these reasons, watermelon takes center stage in these tropical fruit popsicles made with whole fruit!

We balance watermelon’s sweetness with pineapple and lime juice, and blend it all up with coconut water and a pinch of sea salt for an electrolyte boost!

Fresh mint adds sophistication, but in a “these are still kid-friendly” kind of way.

Whirl everything together in a blender, then freeze in a popsicle mold, and a cooling, vibrant treat awaits!

We hope you LOVE these popsicles! They’re:

Super refreshing
Made with whole fruit
Naturally sweet
& Taste like summer on a stick!

Make them any time you have leftover watermelon or pineapple around (4th of July parties, anyone?) and you’ll be thanking yourself on upcoming hot summer days.
