Ya dig? Ya dig.
When I was dreaming up my Popsicle recipe I was reminded of the most refreshing frozen fruit experience I’ve ever had. It happened during the peak of summer two years ago.
It was hot, everyone was sweating, and my friend had scored a major load of fruit on sale at Sam’s. Since you can’t consume 8 pounds of blueberries by yourself in one week – I’ve tried – she decided to freeze the leftovers into little snack baggies and she gifted one to little old me.
I know, I have the cutest mom friends ever.
My little frozen fruit baggie beheld mandarin oranges, blueberries and bananas. So good, so simple. I remember the fruit being so refreshing, like a Popsicle, only all natural and totally healthy. I had to have it again.
So, this week I crafted my very own all-fruit Popsicles that require just four ingredients and NO Popsicle molds, because I don’t own one and I ain’t buyin’ one. Besides, when you have Dixie cups and wooden sticks, why do you need fancy pants Popsicle molds? To impress your neighbors? DON’T THINK SO.
Behold, the all-fruit, 4-ingredient Popsicle.
All soaked in orange juice.
Icy, simple, tart, sweet, soft in spots from the frozen fruit. I’m in Popsicle havana heaven. Wanna join?

All-Fruit 4-Ingredient Popsicles
- ~1 ripe peach (skin removed, diced)
- 1/3 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
- 3/4 cup mandarin orange segments
- ~1 cup fruit juice of choice (I went with OJ, but pomegranate, grape, or cranberry would also work lovely)
Divide orange segments, blueberries and peaches equally between 7 or 8 dixie cups or 6 standard-sized popsicle molds (amounts as original recipe is written // adjust if altering batch size).
Nestle your popsicle sticks down into the bottom center of the molds and top with juice of your choice – I went with OJ, but cranberry or pomegranate would also be great here.
Place close together in a loaf pan or other small pan and freeze until set – at least 4 hours.
Remove dixie cup molds and consume immediately. Store leftovers in the freezer in a freezer-safe bag.
