Fruitsicles


These cool little pops made with real fruit are easy to whip together — and pack up. Load them in to the cooler and enjoy them anywhere! No fancy molds necessary — just pour the mixture into mini plastic cups, freeze, and go. 

Shop at Dollar Tree – Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • 1 - 12 oz. Bag Frozen Strawberries
  • 2 Cups Fruit Punch
  • ½ Cup Sugar (or to taste)
  • 3 Cups Vanilla Ice Cream, Softened
  • Mini Plastic Cups
  • Cocktail Picks
  • Cookie Pan

Easy Step-by-Step Directions:

  1. Blend strawberries, sugar, and fruit punch, leaving small chunks of fruit intact. Add fruit punch if the mixture is too thick for your blender. Taste and adjust proportions, as needed. 
  2. Stir softened ice cream into the fruit, combine completely or create a marbled mixture.
  3. Arrange plastic cups on a cookie sheet and add the cold mixture, stopping about ¼" from the top edge to accommodate expansion. Place a cocktail pick/fork in each cup. The mixture should be thick enough to hold the pick in place.
  4. Put the cups in the freezer until frozen solid; about 4 hours or overnight.
  5. To unmold: Warm the cup in your hand until the ice pop loosens, then squeeze gently to remove.
