Creamy Rainbow Smoothie Popsicles
“An easy and delicious way to make rainbow smoothie popsicles made with fresh fruit and yogurt. Perfect for breakfast or a snack!”
I knew that when I made these rainbow smoothie popsicles that they would be a hit. We love smoothies around here and that’s exactly what these popsicles are, frozen smoothies!
Hey you just can’t go wrong with fresh fruit and yogurt for a quick snack or breakfast. Sometimes I even add in some creamy oatmeal for some extra bulk.

Rainbow Smoothie Popsicle Tips:
1.) You really can’t go wrong with this recipe. I’ve listed some measurements below but really you can use as much fruit and yogurt as you’d like. I prefer to use more fruit since it creates a darker color. Most smoothie pop recipes calls for equal parts fruit and yogurt. Do what lifts ya skirt!
2.) ADD SUGAR or use ridiculously ripe fruit: I know what you’re thinking. “Who needs added sugar, I never add sugar to my smoothies” Well, neither do I, but as with anything that’s frozen, it doesn’t taste as sweet. Hence why melted popsicles takes so syrupy sweet, yet when they are frozen the sweetness is perfect. I always over sweeten a tad for this exact reason.
3.) Use fresh fresh or thawed frozen fruit: Anytime I’ve tried to make this with frozen fruit I have to add a bit of fruit juice to get the fruit to blend properly. And then with the added fruit juice the layers just don’t seem to stay separated.
4.) Want a creamier texture? Try blending in some banana! Tastes great with all the other fruits as well.
5.) Swap out the fruits for your favorite. No need to stick to what I have listed. Instead of mango you can choose peaches, instead of kiwi try spinach. Don’t like blueberries? Try blackberries or raspberries instead of strawberries.
