Healthy and homemade popsicles are the perfect summer treat for toddlers and kids. Make these Rainbow Popsicles or any of the other 14 popsicle ideas for a delicious and healthy snack


  • 2 cups assorted rainbow fruit, see below
  • 1-2 cups coconut water
  • 1-2 tbsp honey (optional)


  • 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.
  • 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 stick into each mold. Place the popsicle molds into the freezer for at least 5 hours, but preferably overnight.


Age: 9+ months and up (omit honey for any baby under 1 year).
Yield: this recipe makes roughly 20 ounces, which gave me 7 regular-sized popsicles. Depending on your popsicle molds, you may need to adjust the recipe amounts.
Notes on 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.
