Remove from the heat and then add in the heavy cream, stirring constantly to incorporate the ingredients.
Place remaining berries in the popsicle molds and then pour the berry mixture on top.
Place the popsicle sticks in and freeze until they are frozen solid.
Variations To Recipe And Tips For Success
- You can cook the fruit down as much as you want. Make it a smooth texture by breaking down the fruit. Or leave larger pieces if you want to have bites of the fruit.
- Change up with any fruit you have. Summer fruits are great just grab whatever you want, or do a single fruit or a blend of fruits.
- If you don't have a popsicle mold you can use small paper cups and stick a popsicle stick in the center. Then place foil on top to hold the stick in the center.
- Run the popsicle mold under warm water for a minute and then it will help release the popsicle from the mold.
- You can use any sugar substitute you like - even sugar-free maple syrup!
- Add additional sweetener if you want a sweeter popsicle flavor.
Trim Healthy Mama Popsicles
As written, these fruit pops (popsicles) are a THM-S fuel because of the heavy cream.
But if you would like to make these healthy popsicles a THM-FP, you can substitute equal parts 0% Greek yogurt and unsweetened almond milk to replace the heavy cream. This will also drastically reduce the calories in your ice pop!
If you would like to make these a THM-E recipe, use the greek yogurt and almond milk option, but use a higher carbohydrate fruit such as bananas, pitted cherries, pineapple, peaches, mango, or papaya.
If you are following the Trim Healthy Mama plan, these homemade sugar free popsicles can easily be made into a fuel pull or an S or E fuel depending on the ingredients you use.
Whichever option you choose, you'll have a delicious ice-cold popsicle to enjoy on a hot day!
Common Questions Asked
How to store homemade popsicles?
You can keep your no sugar added popsicles in the freezer for up to two months. Just store them in the molds it comes with.
I also recommend keeping them pushed back on the shelf so that when the freezer door opens it doesn't alter the temperature too much.
Can I use Greek yogurt instead of heavy cream?
Sure, you are welcome to use Greek yogurt instead of heavy cream. I haven't personally tried this, but I do believe it would work!
I recommend using plain Greek yogurt or vanilla Triple Zero yogurt (You could use this Copycat Vanilla Triple Zero Yogurt recipe). You don't want the flavors to clash with the fruit by getting a flavored yogurt.
Can I use coconut cream instead of heavy cream?
If you are wanting to make a dairy-free popsicle, I recommend using full-fat coconut milk in place of the heavy cream.
Coconut cream would also work in this recipe! Just know that your popsicles will have a slight coconut flavor to them, and they may be a bit icier.
How long do popsicles take to freeze?
It takes approximately 4-6 hours for popsicles to freeze. I recommend freezing them overnight so they are completely frozen when you're ready to eat them.
What is the best fruit for popsicles?
The best fruit for popsicles is whatever fresh fruit you have on hand!
You can use everything from strawberries and blueberries to peaches and kiwi.
This particular recipe uses a mix of frozen berries (blackberries, blueberries, and strawberries), but you can definitely use any fruit you wish!
What sweetener should I use?
This recipe calls for Gentle Sweet, but you can use whatever you like!
You can use sugar-free maple syrup, stevia, xylitol, or erythritol. And you can adjust the sweetness to your own personal taste.
What is the best popsicle mold to use?
There are so many different popsicle molds on the market these days!
I personally like using silicone popsicle molds because they are easy to use and easy to clean. However, you can definitely use any popsicle mold you have on hand.
Can I use frozen mixed berries?
Yes, you can use frozen mixed berries. I actually used a mix of frozen blackberries, blueberries, and strawberries for this recipe.
If you want to use fresh fruit, that's fine too! It really doesn't matter if you use fresh or frozen.
If you want a completely smooth popsicle, you can place fresh fruit, sweetener, vanilla, and heavy cream directly into your blender blend until smooth, and then pour directly into the popsicle molds.
If you are using frozen fruit, you'll want to thaw it before blending, as it will make your mixture very thick.
Do I have to cook the fruit mixture?
No, you don't have to cook the fruit mixture. You can follow the instructions in the paragraph above if you don't want to cook the mixture on the stove.
If you do choose to cook the fruit, just place it in a small saucepan over medium heat and cook until the fruit is soft. Once it's soft, mash with a fork or potato masher, and then add sweetener, vanilla, and heavy cream.
Cooking the fruit mixture just gives it a bit more flavor, but it's not necessary.
