pop icey

Hey guys!

To me, there’s nothing more satisfying than something really cold and refreshing as the weather begins to warm up. And if it’s totally cute and colorful, it tastes even better, right?! That’s certainly the case with these tie dye popsicles. Obviously they’re gorgeous and just scream, “I’m healthy and full of antioxidants,” but they also taste absolutely incredible!

Believe it or not, nailing health, beauty and taste in a recipe can be hard. Sometimes we sacrifice taste because something is “good for us,” or it’s gorgeous for a photo but might not be the healthiest choice. I’m here to say, these get an A+ on ERRTHANG!!!!

Oh! And did I mention they’re easy to make? I’ll teach you the trick to layering if you don’t have the patience to freeze every layer before adding the next one. (I mean, who has time for that?) We need to get to the sweet, sour, cold and perfectly drippy final product instead of laboring for hours. Imagine all the possibilities for colors too! Just select the colors of fruit you wish to highlight for your next soiree, and follow the method for these no-fail pops! Seriously guys, you must make these with your favorite fruits! They taste way better than anything you can get from a store, and there’s no added sugar, so you can feel good about eating them. They’re also less than 100 calories each!

TIE DYE POPSICLES

Yield: 1 serving

Serving Size: 1 popsicle

Prep Time: 15 min

Chill Time: 4-6 hrs

Ingredients:

Green Layer

  • 1/2 cup packed spinach
  • 4 kiwi, peeled
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • Pinch of stevia, or 6 drops liquid stevia

Orange Layer

  • 4-5 frozen peach slices (about 1 peeled peach), slightly thawed
  • 1/2 cup frozen mango chunks, slightly thawed
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice

Yellow Layer

  • 3/4 cup frozen pineapple tidbits
  • 1/2 ripe (unfrozen) banana
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice

Purple Layer

  • 1/2 cup blackberries
  • 1/4 cup frozen blueberries
  • 1/4 banana

Pink Layer

  • 1/2 cup pomegranate seeds
  • 1/4 banana
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice

Method:

  1. Prepare 8 popsicle molds like these into their holders.
  2. Begin by blending the green layer ingredients until completely smooth. Spoon into the bottom of the molds. Place in freezer while you prepare the next layer.
  3. Blend the orange layer ingredients together. This layer will be thick. If you want little pieces of real fruit, pulse blend instead. Spoon this layer on top of the green and push the stick into the center just a bit in order to begin your tie dye effect. Remove the stick and place molds in freezer.
  4. Blend the yellow layer and repeat the above instructions.
  5. Blend the purple layer and repeat the above instructions. Be careful here on how much you push your stick through the other colors, as the purple is quite dark and you don’t want to swirl too deeply.
  6. Blend the pink layer, which will be thin. Strain out the seeds using a strainer and spoon to push the juice through. Pour on top of the purple layer. Insert the sticks and place in the freezer for 4-6 hours, or until completely frozen.

TIPS:

  1. If you don’t want to freeze for several minutes between layers, just make sure that each layer (except the last) is very thick and “spoonable.” If early layers are thin and later layers are thick, they fall right through the early layers.
  2. If you have all of your ingredients out and ready to go, it expedites the process, and the frozen berries have just enough time to thaw a little, but not too much.

    Hi Cassey, I love all you recipes and this one looks divine! I have one question. I’ve been wondering this for a while. I love bananas, I love to eat them just as they are. And in banana bread! <
    Thank you so much for everything you do <3

    • Katieblogs11 says:

      HI! So I’m not totally sure if this will work every time but when Cassey made her crepes she said you could replace the banana for a mango or something with the same consistency! I hope this helps!

      • Malin Magnusson says:
