I’m pretty sure my family lives on homemade popsicles in the summer. We had 128 days over 100 degrees last year (yes, that’s the real number. I checked. And I KNOW. HOLY HOT!!!), so I basically consider them a necessity.

I started making homemade popsicles when my kids were small, partly because they’re really easy and fun to make, partly because they taste SO GOOD, and partly because homemade popsicles can be made without dyes, refined sugar, or any of the “extras” you sometimes find in commercial popsicles.

We NEVER run out of flavors to try (basically any smoothie you love can be turned into a popsicle!), and these raspberry sorbet bars with a chocolate drizzle are our newest creation.

After the Dole Whip Popsicles of last summer, my kids wanted to try another Disney-inspired fave, and these tasty raspberry popsicles remind us of the hand-dipped ice cream bars we love to get at Clarabelle’s at Disney California Adventure Park. We always get the berry sorbet bar drizzled with dark chocolate and sprinkled with mini chocolate chips. It’s AMAZING.

These Raspberry Sorbet Popsicles have all the same delicious charm. They’re sweet, bright, and velvety smooth. And the satisfying crunch of the (optional) chocolate shell drizzle puts them over the top! You won’t believe how easy these are…

How to Make Raspberry Sorbet Popsicles

These healthy raspberry popsicles are so simple! You only need TWO ingredients if you make them without the chocolate drizzle and FOUR if you make them with the chocolate drizzle. Here’s what you need to get going:

  • RASPBERRIES (FROZEN OR FRESH) – I almost always use frozen raspberries for these, since I love having them on hand and you can stock up during a sale. You’ll need 1 1/2 (10oz) packages of frozen raspberries or about 1lb. fresh raspberries to make these. It’s WORTH it. All that raspberry flavor is amazing.
  • WHITE GRAPE JUICE OR APPLE JUICE – Light-colored juice allows the bold raspberry red to shine and helps sweeten these naturally. I prefer white grape juice if you can find it because the flavor’s a bit more neutral, but apple juice will also work.
  • OPTIONAL MAGIC CHOCOLATE SHELL – It’s an extra step, but I *highly* recommend you go for it! The chocolate raspberry combination is blow-your-mind good. My homemade magic shell is made from allergy-friendly chocolate chips (like these or these) and coconut oil. That’s it!

FAQ + TIPS & TRICKS FOR THE BEST RASPBERRY SORBET POPSICLES:

MY FAVORITE POPSICLE MOLD – I make a LOT of homemade popsicles in the summer, and this popsicle mold has been with me for over 100 batches and 4 years of popsicle making. It’s still going strong!

FUN WAYS TO TOP THESE – Besides drizzling them with homemade chocolate shell, you can also sprinkle them with other yummy toppings, like…

BLENDER or FOOD PROCESSOR – You don’t have to have a fancy-pants blender for this recipe. Any blender (or even a food processor) will do the job. If you need one, I’ve loved my Blendtec. It’s an amazing high-speed blender that blends so smoothly and beautifully.

TO STRAIN OR NOT TO STRAIN – You don’t absolutely *have* to strain the seeds out of your sorbet mixture, but I recommend it for the best texture. I’ve made these with and without straining, and my kids FAR prefer them strained. I just pour the mixture through a fine mesh sieve (like this or this). All I’m left with is velvety smooth raspberry puree that freezes into perfect raspberry sorbet pops!

Description

Healthy Raspberry Sorbet Popsicles – These dreamy raspberry popsicles taste like a scoop of raspberry sorbet. Try them drizzled with chocolate for an even fancier treat! (Paleo, Vegan) 


Ingredients

Scale

For the Raspberry Sorbet Popsicles:

  • 1 lb. raspberries (fresh or thawed from frozen)*
  • 11 1/2 cups white grape juice (or apple juice)

For Optional Chocolate Shell Drizzle:**


Instructions

For the Raspberry Sorbet Popsicles:

  1. Place raspberries and juice in a blender. Blend until raspberries are as smooth as possible.
  2. Pour mixture through a fine mesh sieve into a bowl or large liquid measuring cup to strain out the raspberry seeds. (Optional, but recommended).
  3. Pour strained raspberry puree into your popsicle mold. Insert sticks and freeze at least 3-4 hours, or until solid. Remove from popsicle mold and enjoy as is, or top with chocolate shell drizzle below.

If you’re adding the chocolate shell:

  1. When the raspberry popsicles are firmly frozen, start making your chocolate shell drizzle.
  2. Prepare your station, by setting out a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone nonstick baking mat. Assemble any optional toppings you plan to add so everything is ready to go.
  3. In a small saucepan, gently melt the chocolate chips and coconut oil over low heat until completely smooth. (Alternatively, you can put the chocolate chips and coconut oil in a microwave-safe dish and microwave it in 20-30 second increments, stirring in between until fully melted).
  4. When the chocolate is melted, remove raspberry popsicles from freezer and place on prepared baking sheet. Drizzle with chocolate shell and immediately top with any desired toppings. Repeat with remaining popsicles, and return to freezer as soon as possible. Let sit 5-10 minutes to harden, or eat immediately.
  5. To store: when the chocolate shell is set, transfer popsicles to a freezer safe bag and press out any additional air before sealing. Store in the freezer 3-4 weeks.

Return popsicles to the freezer for 30-60 minutes to harden. Store in an airtight zip-top bag in the freezer.

Notes

*If using frozen, you’ll need 1 1/2 (10oz) bags of frozen raspberries. I thaw mine before blending to speed things up.
