Cutting board with rainbow fruit, coconut water and honey for popsicles for toddler and kids.

Ingredients

  • Rainbow Fruit: you can use whatever fruit you have on hand, it doesn’t have to be the full rainbow of colors for these popsicles to work. For toddlers and younger kids, I would recommend you chopping the fruit so that they don’t get a huge piece of frozen fruit when they are eating the popsicles. Here are some options in case you want to go for the full rainbow effect –
    ❤️ RED: strawberries, raspberries, cherries
    🧡 ORANGE: mandarin oranges,
    💛 YELLOW: mango, pineapple,
    💚GREEN: kiwi, grapes,
    💙 BLUE: blueberries
    💜 PURPLE: blackberries, purple grapes
    I used chopped strawberries, mandarin oranges, pineapple, kiwi, blueberries and blackberries.
  • Coconut Water: Coconut water adds some sweetness to these popsicles without the need for added sugar. It contains very little fat and good amounts of potassium, magnesium and vitamin C. It’s a great way to hydrate during the hot summer months. You can use any brand of coconut water you prefer, but look for a brand without added sugar.
  • Honey: using honey is optional and to be honest, most of the time I skip it because the coconut water is naturally sweet. But if you want a sweeter popsicle, then you can add it in.

Instructions

  • Chop the fruit to bite-size pieces.
  • Place the fruit into the popsicle molds in any order you want.
  • If using honey, mix the honey and coconut water together. Feel free to omit the honey.
  • Pour the coconut water into the molds, gently tapping the mold on the counter or gently squeezing the mold to get rid of any air bubbles.
  • Insert the popsicle mold stick.
  • Place the popsicle molds into the freezer.

How long does it take to freeze popsicles?

I allow at least 5 hours for the rainbow popsicles to freeze, but if you can leave them overnight. I like to make these once the kids have gone to bed and they are ready to enjoy the next day.

How long do rainbow popsicles keep?

If you can wait that long, these ice pops will keep well in the freezer for up to 6 months. I like to make a few batches to keep everyone happy throughout the summer!

COOKING WITH KIDS

You can easily have your kids help you make these fun popsicles.

TODDLERS

  • Toddlers can help measure and chop the fruit with a kid-safe knife.
  • They can place the fruit into the popsicle molds and then pour the coconut water into the molds. They do not need to do the fruit in rainbow order, let them put it in however their little heart’s desire.
  • With help, they can place the popsicle molds into the freezer. My kids always spill the tray at this point, so just give them an extra hand.

KIDS

  • You can pretty much let older kids make this recipe by themselves. 
  • They can pick out and chop all of the fruit before filling up the popsicle molds.
  • Kids can pour the coconut water into the popsicle molds and place the popsicle molds into the freezer.

Recipe Notes and Tips

  • Chop the fruits into small evenly sized pieces so that they fit easily into the mold and freeze.
  • Use frozen or fresh fruit, and organic if you can.
