These beautiful and yummy Apple Juice and Berry Popsicles are naturally sweetened and made out of only fruit and fruit juice. That’s it! They are seriously the easiest healthy popsicle recipe, and they are perfect for summer!
Plus, they are only about 40 calories a popsicle and are naturally Paleo, clean, and gluten-free. Talk about guilt-free. 🙂
Even though these Apple Juice and Berry Popsicles are low calorie and all natural, you will not have to sacrifice with taste here… they are incredibly sweet and refreshing!
Apple juice is naturally sweet, so it is the perfect liquid to use to freeze.
You can buy 100% pure apple juice without any additives at the grocery store; I used Martinelli’s to make this recipe. But you can also juice fresh apples using a juicer.
I tend to use my juicer to make fruit juices, but I wanted to keep it easy.
And by easy I mean:
Pour berries in popsicle molds
Pour apple juice in popsicle molds
Put popsicle sticks on top of popsicle molds
Yup that’s easy enough for me. 🙂
I love how these taste like apple but have chunks of frozen berries mixed in, so the berry flavor seeps into every bite. The sweetness from the apple juice compliments the sour berry flavors very well.
I also love not adding any sweetener to the recipe.
I’ve tried popsicle recipe testing with various other fruit purees and found that honey or maple syrup helps with adding a nice hint of sweetness, but this is totally unnecessary here.
Simple is best in this case.
I know these Apple Juice and Berry Popsicles are a super simple recipe, but I have to be honest, I did not think of this on my own! haha
I got the idea to make these from my sister when she mentioned wanting to make popsicles for her toddler and contemplating using apple juice to make them.
I immediately thought: 1) that is genius 2) apple juice popsicles shouldn’t only be for toddlers and 3) how soon can I make these.
Answer: the same day. I made these the same day. 🙂
And then I proceeded to eat them for breakfast the next day. Which seems totally fine considering it’s all fruit.
Side note: I originally wanted to post a strawberry matcha popsicle recipe here first, but I need to recipe test some more before posting. Once I finish eating all of these Apple Juice and Berry Popsicles, and free up my popsicle molds, I’ll get back to testing for these strawberry matcha popsicles.
Speaking of molds, I bought these Lebice BPA-free popsicle molds on Amazon for about $10. Worth it!
These Apple Juice and Berry Popsicles are naturally sweetened and made out of only fruit and fruit juice. They are naturally Paleo, clean, gluten-free, and only 40 calories a piece.
- 1 1/4 cup apple juice (all natural, no sugar added) (either store bought or freshly juiced)
- mixed berries (enough to fill each popsicles mold)
Slice strawberries, and then fill each popsicle mold with the mixed berries. Put a few of the sliced strawberries pieces against the edge of the popsicle molds. ( All in all, I used 6 blackberries, 18 blueberries, 12 raspberries, and 5 strawberries to fill six popsicle molds)
Pour apple juice into the popsicle molds and on top of the berries until filled to the top. This was 1 1/4 cup of apple juice for me. Top each popsicle mold with the popsicle sticks.
Freeze for at least 4 hours.
Note: I used these Lebice BPA-free popsicle molds.
