It is hot like fire outside according to my toddler. Hot like fire. I agree with him. You know what hot days need? Homemade juice pops! My kids eat a ton of summer ice treats like popsicles, ice cream, sherbert, and ice pops. I think its awesome that they like healthy treats like this orange juice pop recipe. Orange juice pops are delicious. I have tried to keep up with their appetite and make cool stuff this summer but so far I have been terribly lazy. I love recipes that kids can help with and this one is great! They will love being able to pour the juice into the molds and make their own ice pops.
Orange Juice Pops Ingredients –
2 C. orange juice, any brand
1 orange cut into ½ slices
4 C. popsicle mold (like this awesome popsicle mold set)
popsicle sticks (optional)
#1. Pour about ½ C. of orange juice into each mold filling almost to the top. You may need a little more or a little less depending on the size of your molds.
#2. Next, take you orange slices and add 2-3 to each mold, using a popsicle stick to push them down.
#3. Cover with lids and freeze.
#4. If you prefer using popsicle sticks, cover your popsicle mold with plastic wrap and make a small slit directly in the center with a knife. Put a popsicle stick into each mold and freeze. (or you can use this Prepworks by Progressive Freezer Pop Maker which uses wooden popsicle sticks and is good for all types of frozen treats)
*Makes approximately 4 servings. 1 popsicle = 1 serving.

Those look so good! I know David would love them for sure. He love orange juice.
Great idea! Perfect summer treat on a hot day!
My seven year old is obsessed with all things orange juice right now. I definitely need to try these with him.
My kids would love these. I love how simple they are to make.
I used to do this with orange juice as a kid. I would put a cup in the freezer for a few hours until it froze halfway, then take a spoon and blend it up like a slushie. YUM
Me too Kim! I used to try it with kiwis and lemons as well. I liked the sour ones 🙂
We just got ice pop molds at Whole Foods today and I’m going to try this in them! I never even thought to actually add an orange slice, but eat frozen oranges (and grapefruit, because I’m weird like that) all the time!
What a great snack idea. Not only will the kids enjoy eating it but I bet they would enjoy making them as well.
These are sooo pretty!
So refreshing! I love that you put the orange in it. I’m going to have to try this with my boys!
I make these for my kids, but never thought about putting actual orange slices in there. yummy!
They’re not only beautiful, but they look so darn refreshing too! Yum!
my daughter LOVES fruit juice Popsicles! THese would be a huge hit with her!
My Mom used to make these when I was a child but in little holders. They were delicious!
These look really good. Especially since my whole family loves OJ!
Mmmm, those look tasty and just in time for summer. My son will absolutely love these. We are always trying to find healthy snacks and these will hit the spot. Thank you!
I love how simple these are! I’m going to make squeeze some oranges and lemons and give them a try!
frozen treats are a definite staple for summer. I need to invest in some molds so I can make these!
This looks so good and definitely a great snack idea for these brutally hot summer days.
These look so yummy. There’s nothing better than a homemade popsicle on a hot summer day!!
These are yum! We make frozen pops all the time!
These look great! I haven’t tried orange juice pops before.
MMM!! They look delicious and they’d be so good!
What a perfect summer treat! Love that there’s not tons of sugar, too.
This would be great but can you believe in 2014 I don’t own a freezer…
These are easy to make and also cute. I am sure they are refreshing!
The kid will love these. Thanks for the idea.
I’d definitely love to try these! I like anything orange flavored!
I haven’t done these since I was a kid. Thanks so much for the reminder. These look wonderful.
I love this recipe. This is something my kids and I can make together and it’s healthy, good and easy to make.
These look delicious! We have been talking about making our own popsicles, so they aren’t full of the added stuff that the big companies use! Thanks for the recipe!
really easy to make a a great source of getting vitamin C! Definitely something the grandkids and the rest of the family would enjoy eating.
This does sound good! I just put these molds in my cart. I have two sets, but I don’t like them that much. I want to try these. I also want to try them with a little Greek yogurt added.
