Popsicles are my current food addiction. They’re fun and easy to make, and an excellent way to load up on antioxidants and nutrients.
Below are a few of my favorite recipes, but all you need to learn is the method then get creative! You can make just about drink into a popsicle, my Mint, Ginger & Watermelon Sparkler would be delicious, too.
You can find inexpensive popsicle molds at most home stores, just look for BPA-free (for your health) and dishwasher safe (for easy cleanup). Here are the ones I use.
Most popsicles need to freeze at least 4-6 hours so it’s best to make the right before bed or first thing in the morning. The below amounts are estimates for six three-ounce popsicles, adjust the ingredients according to the popsicle mold package instructions.
Remember that your popsicles will taste exactly like the mix, so taste everything before you pour it into the molds to make sure you like it.
Blueberry Cream Popsicles
- 1 cup unsweetened greek yogurt
- ½ cup unsweetened almond milk
- ¾ cup frozen or fresh blueberries
- ¼ cup purified water
- ¼ cup agave nectar
Blend all ingredients on high in a blender for 60 seconds. Pour into molds, freeze overnight. These are an excellent treat that’s packed with protein and tons of antioxidants, try ’em for breakfast!
Honey Green Tea Popsicles
- 2 cups of your favorite green tea, brewed according to package instructions
- Juice of 1 Lemon, about 1 ½ tbsp
- 2 tbsp raw honey
Combine all ingredients and let cool to room temperature. Pour into molds and let freeze overnight. This is a delicious way to get your green tea during hot summer months. They can have caffeine, so careful giving too much to little ones.
I’m perfecting the “Healthy Chocolate Fudgsicle” recipe – look for it coming soon!
