Sore Throat Popsicles

When the kids are sick, woah! It can be so hard to comfort them—especially before they can fully tell us what they’re feeling. To help, I love to have easy foods and drinks on hand to help soothe them, including popsicles.

This recipe for sore throat popsicles relies on fruit for the creamy, soothing texture, as well as vitamin C and hydration. That way, even if the kids aren’t eating much else, this will help nourish them and, I hope, help them feel a little better.

Liquids, comfort, and rest are great to focus on when the kids are under the weather and this recipe hits two out of the three to get us started.

Ingredients You Need

Here’s a look at the ingredients you need to make these popsicles for kids (or for yourself!). You can keep all of these on hand in the freezer and pantry so you’re ready to go when you need them.

  • Mango: I used thawed dice mango because it’s so much easier than having to peel and chop it from fresh, but that is an option if you find nice-looking fresh mango. I add mango to these popsicles since they are super creamy when blended, which makes the popsicles a really nice texture.
  • Strawberries: I used thawed frozen strawberries for ease, but fresh ones will work here, too. These add flavor, hydration, and vitamin C. 
  • Honey: This is optional for kids over age 1 to sweeten the popsicles. Honey can also help coat throats when they are sore.

Step-by-Step Instructions

Here’s a look at the basic process involved in making this popsicle recipe so you know what to expect. Scroll down to the end of the post for the full information and timing.

  1. Add the ingredients to a blender.
  2. Blend until very smooth. Taste and adjust sweetness as desired.
  3. Pour into ice pop sleeves or popsicle molds. Freeze for at least 4 hours or overnight.
  4. Serve cold. (To make without a blender, add ingredients to a wide bowl and mash coarsely with a potato masher.)

How to Store

Once fully frozen in molds or sleeves, keep in the freezer for up to 6 months. If you freeze them in popsicle sleeves, you don’t need to transfer to a freezer bag. If you freeze in popsicle molds without a plastic cover, you can transfer to a freezer bag once fully frozen to keep them fresher.

Best Tips for Success

  • Use fresh or thawed frozen fruit. Try using other fruit such as pineapple, honeydew, oranges, or cantaloupe, all of which also have a lot of vitamin C.
  • Taste the blended fruit and adjust sweetness with honey (or maple syrup) as needed. Avoid honey for kids under age 1.
  • Use ice pop sleeves or popsicle molds.
  • Let sit at room temperature for 5-10 minutes to soften slightly or run under hot water before serving, if desired.

    Most delicious combo of fruits ever! You’re right, the mango does make it so creamy! I blended up frozen strawberries and mango and was a little worried at first about the consistency, but I just took the back of a spoon and mashed it together and it turned into a sorbet-like consistency. SO. DELICIOUS.
