Striped Juice Pops might just be summer’s prettiest and healthiest frozen treat — I’ll show you how to create these beauties in a few simple steps!

Striped Juice Pops are summer's prettiest and healthiest treat! |

Aren’t stripes just so summery? Think beach umbrellas, sailboats, and French sailor shirts. My eye is drawn to them wherever I see them. After my striped ice cube post last week, I couldn’t resist trying out the technique with pops. The possibilities are endless, limited only by the number of different fruit juices you can fit in your fridge. Everybody will be wowed by the pretty stripes, but they couldn’t be easier to make.

I used a variety of different juices for my pops, including bottled, canned and fresh squeezed. There’s really no right or wrong way to do this. You could pick two colors and alternate them, or go to town and do multi-colored stripes like I did. Measure as you go for precise stripes, or go for a random, organic look.

You’ll need a popsicle mold, which  you can find easily on Amazon.  I like the classic shape, but you can do this technique with any mold, even paper cups!

For these popsicles I used pineapple. pink grapefruit, grape, cherry, orange, and pomegranate. That vivid pink stripe is a splash of Snapple because I couldn’t resist that shade. Experiment! You’ll get a new blend of bright fruit flavors with every lick. Your kids and their friends will think you are a genius.

This is more of a method than a recipe…

Summer Striped Popsicles


  • assorted fruit juices: you can use fresh, canned, frozen or bottled


  1. It helps if your juices are cold to begin with. Start by putting a small amount of one juice in the bottom of each of your popsicle molds. You can do a thick or a thin layer, or some of each, it's up to you. Put the mold in the freezer and freeze until firm, about 30 minutes.
  2. Take a different juice for each subsequent layer. Pour the layer and then freeze again until solid.
  3. When you are about 1/3 of the way filled, take the frozen mold out of the freezer and insert the stick. I make a little incision in the ice with a small sharp knife dipped in boiling water. Make a slit just big enough to insert your stick so it won't tip. Once you have all your sticks in place, add another layer, and keep going as above, until the popsicle mold is full.
  4. To unmold your pops, briefly dip the mold in a sink of hot water, just up to, but not over the top. Pull out the pops. If they don't wiggle out easily, dip the mold again for a few more seconds.
  5. To store your pops, wrap them in waxed paper.


  • Basically, if it’s liquid you can make it into a popsicle.  That goes for most everything except alcohol, which freezes at a lower temperature and so you can only use about 20% in your popsicles.
  • Natural juices will produce subtle stripes, and if you’re going for bright colors, artificially colored drinks like Kool Aid, Gatorade, and Snapple are perfect.
  • For more of a tie-dye effect, don’t freeze each stripe quite as long before you add the next, they will blend into each other a bit that way.


Have fun!
