It’s EASY and ECONOMICAL to make yummy homemade fruit smoothie popsicles! Enjoy a fresh fruit smoothie, popsicle style! You and your kids will love ’em!
Summer was a hot one, here in good ol’ Oregon. We had less rain than usual, and many days were above 90 degrees. One of the things we enjoyed having in our freezer were fruit smoothie popsicles! Best part? These are not summer only treats…you can make them ANY time of year!
I tend to drink a lot of fresh fruit smoothies in the summer, so it was only natural that I started making popsicles out of them. The beauty of making fruit smoothie popsicles is that you can tailor make them to your own preferences! How great is that?

What Ingredients Are Used To Make Fruit Smoothie Popsicles?
The ingredients were quite simple… fresh fruit, milk (of choice – I used coconut milk for this batch), and Greek vanilla yogurt. The best part is that you can make YOUR favorite smoothie, any flavor, into a popsicle!
For this recipe for fruit smoothie popsicles I used bananas, and blueberries and strawberries! I even was able to use homegrown blueberries and strawberries from our garden in the backyard!
Several years ago I paid around $8 for these “GROOVY” pop molds, and I have gotten so much use out of them! They make popsicle creating so easy (and NO, I don’t receive compensation from them, just thought I’d show what I used to make these fruit smoothie popsicles!).
Making fruit smoothie popsicles could NOT be any easier! You simply add the ingredients (again… YOUR choice) to a blender, just like making your smoothie normally. Blend together for a couple minutes until mixture is smooth.
Once fully blended, pour the liquid into your popsicle molds. Make sure the plastic popsicle holders are securely standing in the base unit to secure them. Fill the popsicle molds about 3/4 of the way full.
What If I Don’t Own A Popsicle Mold To Make Fruit Smoothie Popsicles?
If you do not own a popsicle mold, you can also make the fruit smoothie popsicles this way. Pour the smoothie mixture 3/4 of the way into a small paper dixie cup. Place in freezer on baking sheet. After the smoothie has partly frozen (thickened up), insert a popsicle or wood craft stick into the cup. Freeze popsicles overnight, then simply tear off the paper cup to reveal the popsicle.
Here you can see the holder that securely anchors the popsicle molds for filling. Once molds are filled, snap on and firmly secure the lids (with handles) onto tops of containers.
Freeze smoothies overnight, and BOOM! You’ve just made fruit smoothie popsicles! See how easy that was? When you are ready to enjoy one, simply hold the popsicle mold under some running warm water to loosen popsicle from sides of the container, then carefully slip popsicle out… and ENJOY!
If you used the “paper cup” method (mentioned above), simply tear off the paper cup, and enjoy your fruit smoothie popsicles! Now you have a fruit-filled and protein-enhanced (Greek yogurt) “snack” for the kids after school, or an after dinner creamy frozen fruit smoothie popsicle for YOU!

No plastic popsicle molds? You can make these popsicles using small paper dixie cups. Pour smoothie into paper cups, place cups on baking sheet, and let firm up a bit in the freezer. Insert a wooden popsicle or craft stick into cup, and let the popsicles finish freezing overnight.
