Refreshing frozen fruit bars are easy to make, and everyone loves them. Fruit bars and popsicles are a great way to cool off during the warm summer months and use up any extra fruit sitting around. As a bonus, no ovens are needed to make a special treat.

There are lots of reasons to love these healthy homemade fruit bars. Here are my top three reasons:

  • Preservatives
  • Dyes
  • Artificial sweeteners

Just about any fruit can be whipped up in a blender or pureed and poured into the popsicle molds.

Here are some recipe variations for frozen fruit bars:

  • Adding yogurt – flavored or plain
  • Including a natural sweetener like honey or pure maple syrup
  • Use non-dairy milk, coconut milk, juice, or water
  • Fruit used whole (like berries), sliced, chopped, and/or pureed

You will need some type of upright heavy-duty blender to puree the fruit. I used a Vitamix for my fruit bars. I have had my Vitamix for years, and it has been worth every cent!

Silicone popsicle molds are extremely user-friendly for several reasons:

  • Frozen fruit bars can be removed easily from the molds and are dishwasher safe for quick and easy cleaning.
  • One frozen bar can be taken from the silicone mold at a time.
  • Popsicle sticks are attached to the ends of the molds, making them straight and easy to hold.
  • The silicone molds sit on a flat in the freezer, so you don’t have to worry about spills.

Try this delicious frozen treat too. Smooth out any type of vanilla yogurt on a flat parchment paper-covered cookie sheet and sprinkle nuts and chocolate chips over top. Freeze until solid. Break off chunks and enjoy! It makes an incredibly delicious frozen treat that tastes a lot like cheesecake.

I don’t worry about exact amounts. Pour any extra remaining mixture into ice cube molds for mini frozen fruit treats. Add a wooden popsicle stick when the ice cubes are partially frozen.

More Flavor Combinations To Try:

  • Strawberry and kiwi
  • Mango and orange
  • Mixed berries and peaches
  • Orange and pineapple
  • Add vanilla yogurt ~ dairy-free if needed for different textures

Fruit bars might take up to 8 hours to freeze as freezers vary.

Enjoy!
