Lunchbox Freezer Cooking: Homemade Frozen Fruit Cups

It’s only been two weeks into our school year and I am already finding myself in a lunchbox rut. Freezer cooking to the rescue! Every month, I plan to try a lunch box friendly recipe and share my results.

This month I choose Frozen Fruit Cups to try. These healthy cups are full of fresh fruit with a little orange juice.

Verdict: They are delicious! However, they melted too much before my daughter’s lunch time. So, instead of packing these in her lunchbox, we are using these as a healthy after school snack.

Homemade Frozen Fruit Cups

Preparation Time – 5 minutes

Cooking Time – 0 minutes


  • Bananas, sliced
  • Grapes
  • Berries (I used frozen but fresh works great too!)
  • Orange Juice
  • Other fruit as desired. Ideas: pineapple, kiwi, etc.



  • Add about 1/4 cup of mixed fruit into each 1/2 cup Tupperware container.
  • Pour about 1/4 cup of orange juice over each fruit cup.
  • Freeze.
  • Before serving, let thaw for 5-10 minutes. Enjoy this cool, healthy treat!
