These easy Very Berry Fruit Popsicles are simple to throw together. Use whatever berries you have on hand: blueberries, strawberries, raspberries or blackberries. Blend with a banana, vanilla yogurt and some orange juice. The hardest part is waiting for them to freeze.

These Very Berry Fruit Popsicles are a throwback recipe for me. I have memories of my mom making these for us during the hot summer months. I envision us sitting in our backyard on the trampoline in our swimsuits enjoying these popsicles.

My mom used to make these all the time in the summer. They were so quick and easy to throw together with leftover berries, bananas, yogurt, and juice. You don’t even need fresh berries, you can use frozen berries too. If we were too impatient to wait for them to freeze then we would just drink these straight from the blender and she called them “fizzy fruit shakes”.

I am fairly certain she just keep feeding us popsicles to have about 10 minutes of silence before our popsicles started to melt.

We always had plenty of berries in the house because my Mom had a huge garden. In the back of the garden was several rows of raspberries. I loved going to pick fresh berries from the garden, except when the bees were around! There was always frozen raspberries we could grab in a pinch for these popsicles.

The best part about these popsicles is that they can be totally tailored to your own taste or availability of fruit. I used blackberries, raspberries, and strawberries along with a banana. I blended these together with a little bit of vanilla yogurt (I used non-fat) and orange juice or water if you want to cut down the sugar.  For the yogurt, I prefer non-fat vanilla or greek yogurt. Then you just divide it between a few paper cups and put a popsicle stick in it. Easy peasy right?

I still have a few leftover popsicles in my freezer. These are perfect to keep on hand when you need something to cool you down.

      Hi Lauren, yes I am sure! The texture might not be as smooth, but they will freeze just fine. Or you can substitute with a soy yogurt or coconut milk yogurt.

    I love these fabulous little popsicles! They look so refreshing and I love that they’re mixed berry flavored, one of my favorite fruit bar flavors!

    My mom used to always make these for us too! She would always use frozen strawberries because we always picked a bunch in spring and froze them so we could use them all year long. So good on a hot day!!
