Virgin Blackberry Mojito Popsicles - These are AMAZING! Naturally sweetened, tangy, and delicious! (You can also make them with raspberries)
Smoothie popsicle season is pretty much my favorite thing. In the warm (well, let’s be honest, flaming hot) weather, almost nothing tastes as good as a popsicle.

In the last several years, we’ve taken to making our own. It’s as easy as can be–it’s basically just your favorite drink or smoothie poured into a popsicle mold and frozen till solid. I love being able to choose ingredients I feel good about–our popsicles are either 100% fruits/veggies or made with a hint of natural sweetener (like honey).

These virgin blackberry mojito popsicles hit all the right notes for me–fresh berry flavor, a bright twist of lime, a hint of mint, and juuuuust enough honey (or agave) to tie everything together. It’s like the best blackberry limeade of your life with a little kiss of mint coming through at the end.

These work with raspberries too, if you’re not into blackberries. The end result is so satisfying and refreshing, you’ll want to experiment with all kinds of different smoothie blends. And the ingredient list is so short and sweet, you can feel great about enjoying these any time of day.

Notes on the Recipe:

Which popsicle mold do you use? I get asked this ALL the time, and while I own several (#foodblogger), the one I recommend most is this one. It’s got 10 slots, and the lid holds the sticks in place while your popsicles freeze. It’s remarkably easy to clean, and it’s held up after three years of heavy use. These are also awesome as homemade Otter Pops, when you use little zip-top pouches, like these or these.

Don’t like mint? No worries. You can easily leave it out to make these blackberry limeade popsicles. I’m not huge on mint, but I really like it with berries like this. It’s not enough to be minty, just enough to brighten up the other flavors.

Fresh or Frozen. You can use fresh or frozen berries for this recipe. Whichever you have!

Do I really have to strain it? I think so. I’ve tried making them without straining (to keep the fiber from the seeds), and they were SO seedy (even with the blending power of my Blendtec) that the texture was pretty unpalatable for me. If you don’t want to completely get rid of the seeds, I recommend straining at least half of the mixture. It’s a step worth taking!

  1. I’m going to try to make these with raspberries and basil. I have made strawberry basil popsicles and they were really good. So why not raspberry. I’ll let you know how they turn out. Thanks for the yummy recipes.
