Dragon Fruit Popsicle Recipe
I always make our homemade popsicles, and rarely buy them at the grocery stores. Since they’re so easy and inexpensive to make, I always have a few tucked away in the freezer.
Here are the ingredients you’ll need for this popsicle recipe:
- Thick Mango Juice
- Apple Juice
- Dragon Fruit Powder
- Frozen Dragon Fruit (you can use any frozen fruit)
- Light Agave Syrup
- Coconut Milk
How to Make Dragon Fruit Popsicles
Step 1 – Mix Ingredients
You can mix all the ingredients in a blender or a large pyrex measuring cup.
Step 2 – Fill Popsicle Molds
Carefully pour fruit juice mixture into the popsicle mold. This recipe fills ten popsicle molds. Cover the top with the lid.
Step 3 – Place Popsicle Sticks in Mold
Poke the popsicle sticks through the holes in the top of the lid.Push sticks into the popsicle leaving about 2/3 if the stick exposed.
Step 4 – Freeze
Place in the freezer in the upright position. Make sure to place it on a level shelf so that none of it spills over. Freeze for at least four hours.
Step 5 – Remove From Popsicle Molds
This part is a tiny bit tricky. Stretch the sides of the popsicle molds to break the seal of the popsicles. At the same time, push the bottom of the molds to push up the popsicles. These manuvers should release them from the molds.

A Word About Popsicle Molds
Not all popsicle molds are created equal.
The first mold that I bought was so frustrating! I tried every trick in the book to get the popsicles out of the mold. The part that separates them from each other is how easy it is to get the popsicles out of the mold.
So you might want to avoid buying the plastic popsicle molds with the aluminum lid. They look amazing, but the plastic has no give, which you need to release the popsicles. And it seems like Amazon doesn’t even carry them!
The silicone molds are the best. You can stretch them and push and pull the popsicles out of the molds quite easily. I also love that I don’t need to run them over warm water to get them out of the mold.
I hope you enjoyed this recipe and are now inspired to make some homemade dragon fruit popsicles.
