Healthy Popsicle Recipes to Make with Kids ~ it’s going to be a long summer, guys, and we’re all going to need a few tasty tricks up our sleeves to keep our spirits up.  Happily homemade popsicles are cheap, fun, and so cool.  Fyi, you don’t have to be a kid to love these low calorie frozen treats.

My popsicle recipes are juicy, vibrant, and such a blast to make!

There’s no doubt about it, it’s going to be a long ‘eventless’ summer for a lot of us, and we’re going to need a little help. I love a good popsicle in the summer, and I’ve featured so many on the blog, ranging from decadent to super healthy.  And while they obviously appeal to kids, I’ve got some, like my Turkish coffee pops, and my Papaya Breeze poptails, that are just for the adults.

If you don’t have a popsicle mold yet, I highly recommend the modest investment this summer

(Especially if you’ve got kiddos hanging around.)  Molds are cheap and they come in all shapes and sizes.  The Gem Mold, below, is so pretty, I can imagine it for a birthday party or a free-spirited wedding shower.

But for serious popsicle lovers, I go for a classic mold like the stainless steel model, below.  I love this one because it has that traditional shape, and you can un-mold one popsicle at a time if you don’t want to use the whole lot at once. It looks super sharp in the freezer, too 😉

If you want to make ice cream pops, it helps to have a mold specially made for that, like the one below.  It makes it easy to pop out the ice cream for that all important dip into a chocolate coating.

Whatever you do, don’t forget the popsicle sticks!  There’s nothing worse than getting ready to freeze some fabulous pops and realizing you’re out of sticks.


 

Watermelon and Kiwi Popsicles ~

These refreshing pops have a layer of fresh kiwi paired with watermelon, and they’re irresistible on a hot day.

Wild Blueberry and Almond Butter Yogurt Popsicles ~

Creamy, fruity, and a little bit nutty, these popsicles have all the flavors of a delicious smoothie, served up on a stick. Try them with other berries, too.

Rainbow Popsicles ~

These layered popsicles are as fun to eat as they are to look at. Just gather up a few fruit juices and/or fruit purees, and you’re on your way to the prettiest popsicles of your life. Each one is a unique work of edible art.

 


 

Chia Limeade Popsicles ~

I love the look of these speckley, pale green beauties. Limeade makes them ultra cool~ the perfect antidote for summer heat.  Some of my most refreshing popsicles are made with pure citrus juice.

Dinosaur Egg Popsicles ~

“Dinosaur eggs” are a type of pluot (that’s a plum-apricot hybrid for those not in the know) with the most delicious flavor and vivid color. Any kind of seasonal summer stone-fruit would be delicious here ~ check out my Ripe Peach Popsicles, too.

Lavender Moon Milk Popsicles ~

These creamy, dreamy popsicles were simply made for warm summer evenings in the backyard before bed. Lavender adds a calming and unique flavor to these dairy-free (thanks, coconut milk!) beauties.

You know that delicious moment when you take your first bite of a juicy peach every summer?  That’s exactly what these healthy popsicles taste like.
