Looking for delicious ways to make fruit popsicles? Then you must try this recipe for blueberry lemon popsicles! Made without yogurt for a dairy free dessert, this easy fruit pop recipe is made with ripe blueberries and fresh squeezed lemon and orange juice. These simple lemonade popsicles with fruit juice are refreshing for both children and adults, and they make a wonderful frozen summer treat!

Blueberry Lemonade Popsicles

I love to make fruit juice popsicles during the hot summer months to keep in the freezer. As I try to eat as little dairy as possible to prevent triggering inflammation, I often opt for making vegan fruit popsicles. This blueberry lemonade popsicles recipe is made using real fruit, fresh from the grocer or farm! This creates a refreshing frozen, summer treat that everyone is sure to love!

While I try not add refined sugar to the majority of my recipes, I did add a small amount to this one so they would taste more like naturally sweetened, blueberry lemonade. However, if you prefer a sugar-free option, you can also use monk fruit to make sugar free lemon blueberry popsicles. Alternately, you can also try one of the sugar-free variations listed below for a no or low sugar option.

As these fruit juice popsicles are made with freshly picked fruit and just squeezed juice, they are a healthy treat alternative to store bought freezer pops. I like to keep these on hand for a sweet frozen, summer treat after dinner. However, they’re also perfect if you just need to cool off on a hot summer day. Or enjoy them poolside!

Variations and Substitutions for Making Fruit Juice Popsicles

I like the fresh blueberries and fruit juice used to make these lemon blueberry popsicles without yogurt. However, you can also make the following substitutions and variations to customize this recipe and make it your own:

  • Use monk fruit, honey or stevia in place of the sugar.
  • Replace the blueberries with strawberries or raspberries for pink lemonade popsicles.
  • You can blend the blueberries for smooth blueberry lemonade popsicles. Keep in mind, though, that this may cause them to get icy.
  • Replace the lemon and orange juice with lime juice for limeade popsicles.
  • You can omit the mint and replace it with grated fresh ginger. Or add freshly grated ginger in addition to the mint for a fun flavor twist.
  • I prefer the mint taste in these lemon blueberry popsicles. If mint isn’t your jam, you can easily omit it from these summer fruit pops.

Tips for Making Lemonade Popsicles With Blueberries

If you’ve never made popsicles with fruit juice, don’t worry. It’s really easy! However, if you need some help, here are some tips for making lemon blueberry popsicles without yogurt:

  • I recommend using a silicone popsicle mold because the ice pops will release easier.
  • Dip the mold in cold water for 30 seconds to loosen the frozen pops. Repeat as needed.
  • Adding whole fruit will help these blueberry lemon popsicles not be as hard as it breaks up the chunks of ice.
  • Once these blueberry lemonade popsicles are frozen, remove them from the mold and store in a freezer bag.

How Long Do Fruit Juice Popsicles Last in the Freezer?

These lemon blueberry popsicles will last about three months in the freezer. I recommend that you remove the freezer pops when they are set up and store them in a freezer bag. This way, the blueberry popsicles without yogurt will taste fresher, and you can reuse your mold to make more freezer pops.

  • ½ Cup + Tablespoon fresh blueberries

Juice the orange and two lemons. Pour into a blender. Then add 1 tablespoon of fresh blueberries, ¼ cup of sugar and three mint leaves. Blend until combined.

  • To make a variation of these berry ice pops, replace the blueberries for other kinds of berries. You can use multiple types of berries, or try strawberries for strawberry lemonade popsicles.
  • For low-carb popsicles with reduced sugar, substitute the sugar with the same amount of granulated monk fruit.
