These popsicles couldn’t be any simpler and they’re made from one ingredient that you probably have on hand: applesauce. Your kids can help pour applesauce into ice cube trays.  After the trays sit in the freezer for about 20-30 minutes (or more depending on the size of your tray), you can insert sticks into each popsicle.  Little 3 oz. Dixie cups work well, too.  Read about this great tip when using Dixie cups here.  I was thinking apricot applesauce would be a delicious variation.  Can anyone think of any other additions or interesting variations?  A squeeze of lemon juice, perhaps, to brighten up the flavor?

Applesauce pops are a fun way to get extra servings of fruit–after all, what kid can say “no” to an icy cold treat? 🙂

  1. Hi! I found your blog by chance – so glad I did! I’m not a mommy, but my passion is photography as well.
    I really like your photography style and how colorful your pictures are. I’m just an amateur photographer and I’m trying to teach myself as much digital photography as I possibly can using free sources. I’m curious…
    How did you learn photography? What camera are you shooting with? Do you use editing software (i.e.Photoshop) to edit your pics? Sorry if I’m asking way too much. It really inspires me when I find a person that takes good shots and explains me how she/he got to that point. I really want to take pictures like yours one day!!

    Puréed mango will brighten up the color a bit and even add a bit more sweetness 🙂

  3. These applesauce pops are the cutest things! Even picky eaters couldn’t resist them.
    I love your blog and photography.
