This dixie cup fruit popsicle recipe is sweet, juicy, and packs all the fun of summer into fruit ice pops. You can easily use all your favorite fruits, and create flavor combinations like orange mango. Add dollops of vanilla greek yogurt if you want it to be creamy as well. This is the height of easy crafting that the whole family can enjoy together. Instead of using popsicle molds, you use dixie cups to make cute small portioned homemade fruit ice pops that can easily be removed from the cups by running them under warm water.

 

This refreshing treat doesn’t have to be just limited to the fruits I provided here. My popsicle recipe is very adaptable to all sorts of fruits and creations. Depending on your popsicle mixture, the time it takes for the fruit popsicle to fully freeze may differ, but you can’t go wrong with freezing overnight. The orange slice provides a fun and cute “base” that prevents it from melting down your hands if you’re a little slow to eat. I love how it is the perfect mixture of sweet and tart, but doesn’t contain so much sugar or fruit juice that it makes it unhealthy and carb loaded. The juicy berries are full of antioxidants and vitamins and minerals, making this kid friendly treat good to eat and good for us. A better dessert alternative for those hot summer days.

Dixie Cup Fruit Popsicles

Ingredients
  • Watermelon
  • Strawberries
  • Blueberries (optional)
  • Small mandarin oranges
  • 3oz plastic Dixie cups
  • Popsicle craft sticks
Steps
  1. Cut long popsicle sticks in half.
  2. Chop strawberries or pulse blend them in a food processor.  I like the texture of them in popsicles so I finely chopped them instead.
  3. Pulse blend cut watermelon (without seeds) in a food processor.
  4. Mix watermelon with chopped strawberries in a bowl.
  5. Cut thin slices of orange for the top of the Dixie cups.
  6. Mash blueberries in a bowl.
  7. Assemble the popsicles by adding a layer of blueberries and then watermelon. Fill the watermelon to the very top of the Dixie cup.
  8. Place orange slice on top and insert a popsicle stick through the orange slice and into the Dixie cup.
  9. Repeat until all ingredients are used.
  10. Freeze in the freezer for at least 4-5 hours. Run the cup under lukewarm water and twist to remove the popsicle. Follow the steps in the photos.
