It is cheaper to make your own popsicles for your kids. You’ll know what is in them and can reduce or increase the sugar based on your taste.
I like to put some strawberry chunks at the bottom on the container before filling the popsicle container, so I know the kids got a bigger dose of fruit (and it tastes great)
1 cup frozen berries (for this recipe we used frozen strawberries)
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1 teaspoon. vanilla
1/2 cup sugar (use less for sweet fruits and more for tart fruits).
how to make homemade popsicles
Put the heavy cream, sugar and vanilla in a blender. Seal and blend to mix the sugar and cream thoroughly.
Add the frozen berries.
Seal on and spin it for 15-30 seconds
Place the mixture into a popsicle container and allow to freeze.
Tap on the counter to remove any air bubbles and pour more in if needed and place the top on.
Place in the freezer and allow to set up over night.
As an alternative, you can put chunks of fruit at the bottom of the popsicle container and then the mix.

Those look so simple to make and what a great snack for the kids. Refreshing and healthy! Thanks 😀
They were simple and are pretty healthy since you can adjust the sugar.
That looks yummy, almost like the Edy’s ones :).
Yes, but less expensive!
