How to Make Cocomelon Rainbow Popsicles
Before you begin blending fruit, do this:
Fill one popsicle mold with water and weigh the contents. Divide by six. This will give you the amount of fruit mixture to put in each mold. Mine weighed 20 grams which converts to 1.33 tablespoons.
Trial and error is the trick here. 😁
Using a blender, blend the frozen strawberries with 2/3 tbsp honey.
Empty blended fruit into a bowl and clean blender.
Repeat these Step 1 and Step 2 for each fruit. Continue until all fruits are blended and in their own bowl.
Next begin layering the fruit into the popsicle molds in this order:
- strawberries for red
- mandarin oranges for orange
- pineapple for yellow
- kiwi for green
- blueberries for blue
- grapes for purple
Insert popsicle sticks and cover.
Place in freezer overnight. Enjoy your Cocomelon Rainbow Popsicles!
Cocomelon Rainbow Popsicles Recipe Notes And Tips
Grams to cup conversion states that 20g is equal to 1.33 tablespoons. This information will be very helpful when filling the molds and layering the flavors.
I would suggest putting the blended fruit in a bowl and placing it in the fridge until you have blended all the fruits. This will keep them from melting too much and getting watery.
You may notice that some colors bleed together. This may happen if the mixture was a little too thin or watery when you filled the mold.

Here are a few frequently asked questions about these Cocomelon Rainbow Popsicles.
How long will my popsicles need to be in the freezer to set?
You will need to keep them in the freezer for at least 6 – 8 hours to make sure they are completely set and frozen.
How can I get my popsicles out of the mold without cracking or breaking them?
EASY! Run the mold under hot water for just a couple seconds. This will help loosen the mold and they should slip right out.
What if the frozen fruit and honey mixture to too thick to spoon into the molds?
If the mixture is too thick to spoon into the mold, just add about 1/2 tsp at a time and blend again. You do not want the mixture to be too watery.
Where can I get a popsicle mold if I don’t have one?
You can likely find molds at your local discount stores. You can definitely find them online. If you are in a pinch and the kids can’t wait to get them from the store, just use disposable paper cups and a popsicle stick. 🙂
How should I store any extra popsicles?
There are a couple options to store any of the leftover popsicles. You can leave them in the mold in the freezer and remove from molds when ready to eat.
Or you can remove them from the mold and wrap each one individually in plastic wrap. Then place them in a freezer safe storage bag in the freezer until ready to serve.
