Homemade Strawberry Fruit Popsicles #tropimommas

Since having a baby I’ve had to slap my own hand a few times as my kids reached into the freezer this hot, hot summer. I’ve been trying to stay cool but many of the sweet treats aren’t the best thing for my waist line. The kids & I thought it would be fun if we made some of our kind of popsicles.

Grab your blender and about 3 cups of strawberries and one banana. Cut up and place in blender.

I then added 3/4 cups of Tropicana Orange Juice.

Oh and did ya know that Trop50 offers fruit juice goodness with 50 percent less sugar and fewer calories, and no artificial sweeteners. Learn more about it on the Trop50 website and find it at a store near you using the product locator.


I then took my popsicle molds (if you don’t have these paper cups will do with a popsicle stick) and places some sliced strawberries in.

I then added the blended mix.

Add the bottoms and place in the freezer. Ours were done in just a couple of hours.

Once frozen remove and enjoy.

Gavin wanted his straight up Tropicana with sliced strawberries!

And of course any left overs are yummy enough for a good ol’ smoothie for mom.

  1. Yum – that looks so healthy and delicious! A perfect way to cool off this summer!

  2. The thing is these days, we HAVE to come up with our own healthy things to eat and enjoy because we just don’t know what’s in our foods these days! o.O

    Those look like yummy treats to have!

  3. I love those popsicle tupperware? thingys you have. Where do you get those? What are they called? Your recipe doesn’t look like it’s many calories either. mmmmmmmmm What a way to chill! Thanks for sharing.

  6. Those look and sound yummy!

  7. These would be great for my husband, who is a sucker for ice cream, but has given it up so he can get in shape for a 1/2 marathon. He always craves something sweet and these would be perfect! Thanks!

  8. I think that these look delicious!! I love how you floated the strawberry slices in there. I have never thought to do this when I have made my own pops in the past. Thanks for the amazing idea!

    These look delicious! I’m sure the boys couldn’t wait to try one. I love that Trop50 has less sugar, makes for a great smoothie or popsicle. By the way, I love the pictures you include with your recipes. Great job!
