Cure your sweet summer sweet tooth with these wholesome homemade Popsicles!
School is out for the summer months and the kids are constantly asking for Popsicles! So we’ve been having fun creating our own wholesome Popsicle recipes made with real fruit.
Classic orange and white Popsicles that you get at the store contain artificial colors, flavors and sweeteners.
This Real Healthy Creamsicle is made with organic, Greek yogurt, and fresh fruit.
- 2 cups organic, vanilla Greek yogurt
- 1 orange, peeled and seeded
- 1 cup pineapple chunks
- 1 teaspoon raw honey
- Fill the bottom ⅓ of each popsicle mold with yogurt. Freeze for 15 minutes.
- In a high speed blender, combine the orange, pineapple and raw honey. Blend on high speed for a full minute.
- Fill the remaining space in each mold with the orange mixture. Freeze until solid.
The kids love the exotic look of this popsicle, and have fun playing ‘How many licks does it take to get to the kiwi?‘
It’s amazing how bright and vibrant natural fruit colors can be!
- 2 cups strawberries, hulled
- 2 Tablespoons filtered water
- 2 teaspoons raw honey (optional)
- 2 kiwis, sliced
- In a high speed blender, combine the strawberries, water and raw honey. Allow to run for a full minute on high.
- Place one slice of kiwi in each popsicle mold, pressed against the side. Fill the molds with the strawberry mixture.
- Freeze until solid.
Watermelon is by far the most beloved summer fruit. B’s family eats it by the slice with big pieces of salty, white Armenian cheese on top – yummm!
- 2 cups watermelon pieces
- 3 kiwis, peeled and seeded
- 1 Tablespoon raw honey
- 30 mint leaves
- 1 Tablespoon filtered water
- Blend the watermelon in a high speed blender on high for 30 seconds. Fill the bottom ⅔′s of each popsicle mold with the watermelon. Freeze for 30 minutes.
- Combine the kiwi, raw honey, mint leaves and water in the high speed blender for a full minute or until the tiny pieces of mint have disappeared and the green color is vibrant and uniform.
- Fill the remaining space in each popsicle mold with the mint mixture. Freeze until solid.
It’s easy to make layers by freezing one section at a time. The red and green pattern brings the flavor to life by imitating real slice of watermelon.
The kids call this one purple, but it’s made from blueberries so I had to call it blue. Andrew says that it’s his favorite flavor, and Chloe likes the way it turns her whole mouth purple when she eats it!
If your blueberries are super ripe and sweet then feel free to leave out the honey.
- 2 cups blueberries
- ¼ cup filtered water
- 1 teaspoon raw honey
- 1 cup raspberries
- Place the blueberries, water and raw honey in your high speed blender and blend on high for a full minute or until the little pieces of blueberry skin have disappeared and the purple color is vibrant and uniform.
- Place 2 whole raspberries in each popsicle mold, then fill with the blueberry mixture. Freeze until solid.
Hey, who said popsicles were only for kids? This is my favorite flavor — B and I eat this while watching our nightly episode of The Sporanos
Creamy banana, rich coconut milk, flakes of coconut and pure cinnamon make up this gourmet popsicle. It’s so delicious you’ll think you’re eating ice cream.
- 2 bananas
- 1 cup coconut milk, full fat from can
- ½ cup unsweetened, shredded coconut
- 1 teaspoon raw honey
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- Place the peeled bananas, coconut milk, shredded coconut, raw honey and cinnamon in your high speed blender. Blend on high for a full minute or until smooth.
- Fill each popsicle mold. Freeze until solid.
Iced Tea Lemonade
My official summer Starbucks order is a grande, unsweetened iced tea lemonade. The tangy refreshment is unbeatable — so it only makes sense that it would taste even better as a popsicle!
I used CBTL Tropical Passion tea, but feel free to use any tea flavor that you like.
- 1 cup brewed tea
- 5 dates, pitted
- ⅓ cup lemon juice
- 3 Tablespoons raw honey
- ¼ cup water
- Decorative lemon slices
- Brew your tea, then drop the dates in while the tea is still hot. Place the soaking dates in the fridge for 20 minutes.
- Place the lemon juice, raw honey, and water in cup and whisk. Set aside.
- Place the tea and dates in your high speed blender and combine on high for a full minute, or until the tiny date pieces have disappeared.
- Fill each popsicle mold with a 50-50 combination of tea and lemonade. Add decorative slices of lemon. Freeze until solid.
