- You can use either fresh peaches or frozen peaches for these ice pops.
- You will want to use fresh blueberries over frozen blueberries to get the right tart and sweetness level.
- If you don’t have a blender, you can use a food processor to blend your ripe peaches.
- It may be easiest to place your cups on a rimmed baking sheet or in a muffin tin and place that in the freezer.
- If you plan to leave your icy popsicles in the freezer for a few days, cover each one in plastic wrap to avoid freezer burn.
How To Make This Peach Blueberry Popsicle Recipe
2 cups fresh or thawed frozen peaches with no skin
1/4 cup fresh blueberries
Wash all of your fresh fruit and set it aside. If you’re using frozen peaches, make sure that they are completely thawed.
Place your chopped peaches into the blender and blend for about 30 seconds until fully pureed. You’ll want to make sure you have cut up the whole fruit into peach slices or pieces beforehand.
Place a few blueberries into the bottom of each Dixie cup in a single layer.
Fill each cup with your blended peach pulp and fruit juice, and add a few more fresh berries into the top and/or middle as you fill.
Place your wooden sticks into the middle of each cup and place your cups in the freezer (if you have a hard time getting your sticks to stand straight up, wait until they’ve been in the freezer for an hour, and then insert each wooden popsicle stick.)
Freeze for at least 4-5 hours. The hardest part will be waiting for your ice lollies to be ready.
When you’re ready to serve, pull down on the side of each of the small paper cups and your real fruit popsicles will pop right out!
If you have any trouble, run them under hot water for a few seconds and they’ll loosen. Enjoy!

Are There Other Kinds Of Fruit I Can Use For These Fruit Popsicles?
Yes! If you don’t have access to fresh blueberries or peaches, you can use a different fruit. The most important part about these is that you want to keep them healthy popsicles with natural ingredients, so you’re looking to use fresh fruit.
You could substitute fruit purees from fresh strawberries or ripe bananas for the peaches, and small pieces of kiwi or even mandarin oranges in place of the blueberries. In the end, you could have delicious blueberry popsicles with another fruit puree or easy peach popsicles with other fruit chunks.
Can I Turn These Into Peach Blueberry Yogurt Popsicles?
Yes! The best thing about making homemade popsicles is that you can use whatever main ingredients you want. And if your family prefers creamy peach popsicles with blueberries instead, here is the easiest way to make that happen.
While you are blending the peaches, add your creamy yogurt to the blender. Place your blueberries in the cups just as you normally would and pour the creamy blended mixture into your cups. This will yield a few more cream popsicles because you are adding an ingredient, so be ready with extra cups.
You can use any type of yogurt you choose for these healthy treats, but I would stick with a full-fat Greek yogurt or full-fat vanilla yogurt if you have your choice. You can also choose a dairy-free yogurt if that’s your preference.
When you are making your own popsicles, consider using the original popsicle mixture for a first batch and your peach blueberry yogurt mixture for a second batch.
