It’s day 4 of Popsicle Week, and I’ve got a delicious recipe to share today!

We’re talking about Blueberry Pomegranate Popsicles with a color so dreamy and a texture so velvety smooth, you’ll fall in love at first bite.

These homemade blueberry popsicles have no added sugar (unless you want to add it!), and have an almost sorbet-like texture that makes them ultra refreshing on a hot day. I love recipes like this–quick and easy to make, made from simple ingredients, with delicious flavor you’ll dream about later.

And you only need FOUR ingredients to get started!

Simple Ingredients To Start

  • Fresh Or Frozen Blueberries. Blueberries are packed with antioxidants and add a deep, gorgeous color to these blueberry pomegranate popsicles.
  • Fresh Or Frozen Raspberries. To lighten up the flavor a bit, I brighten the mixture with some fresh or frozen raspberries. I love the acidity and tanginess they add!
  • Pomegranate Juice. Then comes pomegranate juice. Feel free to use a pomegranate juice blend if you like–I usually just use 100% pomegranate juice. It’s also rich in antioxidants and tastes amazing. I find it adds enough sweetness that we don’t need any extra sugar or sweetener in this recipe!
  • Fresh Lime Juice. To give our blueberry popsicles one more pop of brightness, I add some citrus with fresh lime juice. It makes a BIG difference in flavor, so don’t skip it!
  • A Popsicle Mold + Popsicle Sticks. Then, you’ll just need a popsicle mold (like this one) and some popsicle sticks to form your pops!

Our Favorite Popsicle Mold

You’ll also need a popsicle mold (or some paper cups) and wooden popsicle sticks to make these key lime popsicles. We’ve tried lots of molds for making frozen treats over the years, but we think this popsicle mold by Norpro is the best. It has 10 slots, sturdy construction (so it stays upright better in the freezer!) and has a lid to hold the sticks in place. It also comes in silicone versions, but I find these can sometimes hold onto scents and flavors.

How To Make These Pomegranate Blueberry Popsicles, Step By Step

As always, you can get the full recipe with ingredient amounts, detailed instructions, and tips in the recipe card below!

  1. Combine. Place the blueberries, raspberries, pomegranate juice, and lime juice in a blender. Cover and puree until very smooth and no large pieces remain. Taste and sweeten if needed*
  2. Strain. If possible, strain the mixture through a fine mesh sieve to remove the seeds (this is an extra step, but it will give FAR superior texture without any grit. It’s worth it!) You should end up with right about 3 cups of smoothie mixture.
  3. Freeze. Pour the mixture into your popsicle molds and cover with a lid (if you have one) or wrap the top of the molds tightly with foil, then insert popsicle sticks. Place popsicle mold upright in the freezer and freeze at least 3-4 hours or until completely solid.

How To Make Blueberry Popsicles Without A Mold

If you don’t have a popsicle mold, you can pour the mixture into small paper cups (3 oz. size), and cover the cups with foil. Insert the popsicle sticks through the foil (it’ll help keep them upright) and place the cups on a level surface (like a plate, cutting board, or baking sheet) and freeze until completely solid. When you’re ready to serve, remove the foil and peel away the paper cup!

Mix It Up With One Of These Variations

  • Mix Up The Berries! If you’d like to play with this blueberry pomegranate popsicle recipe, one of the easiest ways is to mix up the berries. Try making them with a blend of blueberries, strawberries, and raspberries, or toss some blackberries or peaches in the mix for some variety.
  • Pump Up The Lime! For a stronger lime flavor, add the zest of your lime to the blender along with the juice. It can almost taste like blueberry limeade!
  • Sneak In Some Greens! One beauty of a blueberry popsicle like this is the natural purple pigment. It’s definitely strong enough to mask some greens (just like in these Superfood Very Berry Popsicles!), so feel free to toss in a cup of spinach with the berries!
  • Add A Little Protein. Or, round out the nutrition profile by adding a scoop of unflavored collagen protein (paleo/non-dairy), or a spoonful of chia seeds (vegan).
  • Swirl Or Blend In Some Yogurt. One last way to experiment with our blueberry pomegranate popsicle recipe is to swirl the blueberry popsicle mixture with yogurt in the popsicle mold (alternate scoops of smoothie + yogurt) or add some yogurt to the blender along with the other ingredients to give them a creamy texture.

FAQ + Tips For The Best Blueberry Pomegranate Popsicles

TRUST YOUR TASTEBUDS + SWEETEN AS NEEDED. My blueberry popsicles are made with no added sugar, but there is always a TON of variability when working with fruit, from texture, to sweetness, to ripeness. Let your tastebuds guide you here and taste the blueberry popsicle mixture after blending to see if it’s sweet enough for your taste. If it’s not, add some honey, agave, or sugar 1/2 Tbsp. at a time and blend to combine until it’s sweet enough for you.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE FOR HOMEMADE POPSICLES TO FREEZE? It depends on the size and shape of your popsicles, but for my popsicle mold, it’s usually between 3-4 hours. If you’re using a larger popsicle mold or are making thicker pops, it may take close to 5-6 hours.

IS IT BETTER TO USE FRESH OR FROZEN FRUIT FOR HOMEMADE POPSICLES? There’s a little debate about it if you’re a popsicle purist. Some folks say that using frozen fruit can make for an icier popsicle texture. I’ve mixed and matched just about every way possible over the years, and we don’t notice much difference between using fresh and frozen fruit. I say use whatever looks the best or fits your budget best. You can even use some frozen and some fresh!
