How to make all-natural popsicles with pure water
What is your favorite summer fruit? Perhaps it’s the refreshing sweetness of watermelon. Or summer mango topped with a splash of tart lemon juice. Or berries—strawberries, blueberries, raspberries—there are so many to choose from in the height of harvest season. Whichever taste sings summer to you, now imagine it as a delicious, homemade popsicle.
It’s easy to make your own popsicles with fresh fruit, a bit of honey, and filtered water. The result is a low-sugar summer treat, free of artificial ingredients, and full of flavor.
To begin, gather these supplies and ingredients:
- Blender or food processor
- Large strainer
- Large bowl and spoon
- Popsicle molds (reusable, BPA-free plastic molds like these work perfectly)
- A collection of your favorite fruit (whole pieces and slices)
- Approximately 3/4 cup cold, purified water
- 1 tablespoon of honey (optional)
Place several pieces of the whole fruit in the blender. If you’re using honey, add it now. Then add triple-filtered water to help the fruit puree more easily. Blend these ingredients together. Pour the blended fruit, through the strainer, into a large bowl.
Turning to the popsicle molds, place an assortment of fruit slices in each mold. Add fruit according to your preference. Every mold can be different, and it’s fun to try different fruit combinations for a visual, taste and texture highlight. Note: kids love to help out with this step.
Once you have fruit in every popsicle mold, spoon the blended fruit into each one. Fill each mold until it’s about 80 percent full. Give the molds a good tap on the counter to release any air bubbles. Now add the popsicle sticks to each mold and cap them all off, then place them in the freezer.
Approximately six hours later (or overnight), the homemade popsicles will be ready to enjoy. And they should keep well in the freezer for up to eight weeks. To watch how to make your own popsicles, Laura in the Kitchen has a fantastic video with step-by-step instructions.
Triple-filtered water, using the Coway Aquamega 100, is the perfect start to this yummy, healthy summer recipe. The Coway Aquamega 100 water purification system reduces common water contaminants by up to 99.9 percent for you and your family every day, right at home.
1Coway air purifiers have been proven to trap dust, pollen, dander, viruses and bacteria in the air based on KCL (Korea Conformity Laboratories) testing.They have been tested in a 30㎥ size chamber according to the Korea Air Cleaning Association standard (SPS-KACA 002-132:2022 Modified) to measure the 0.01㎛ size of particle removal rate. It was tested on maximum airflow speed in normal room temperature and humidity conditions. The performance may vary in the actual living environment of customers.

3Aerosol test conducted in a Biosafety level 3 laboratory with two Coway air purifier models, Coway Airmega 250 and 400 for removal of SARS-CoV-2 Aerosol by US based MRI Global, a not-for-profit laboratory and partner of US Department of Defense. The test was conducted in a 13.1ft3 chamber. Virus was aerosolized for 15 minutes and the product was turned on high for 2 minutes. Result showed each product effectively removed over 99.98% of the SARS-CoV-2 in 2 minutes. This is a result from a laboratory experiment condition and result may vary in different conditions. This result does not imply it kills SARS-CoV-2 or prevents the transmission of Covid-19. Coway Airmega 250S and 400S are identical to the tested models and has equal performance with an additional mobile connectivity function.
4The concentration of ammonia, acetaldehyde and acetic acid were proven to be removed within 30 minutes by FCG Research Institute, Inc. Human Life Science Lab. It is not a demonstration result in the actual use space. Not all odors and gases may be supported. → Tested with Coway Airmega 150, 160, AP-1512HH, AP-1512HHS, 400, 400S
5The coverage area of the air purifier is based on an area where the air cleaner can make two air changes per hour (ACPH). An air change per hour translates to how many times an air purifier can clean an area, assuming the height of a ceiling to be 8 ft, in one hour. Therefore ** means two air changes per hour means that the cleaner can clean the area once every 30 minutes and * means air changes per hour means that the air purifier can clean the area once every 60 minutes.
