Summer Bucket List of Healthy Popsicles

I have an outrageous weakness for frozen treats in the summer. It doesn’t really matter what kind of treat, as long as it’s cold and delicious. Ice pops are especially fun. However, I recently cut out processed sugar, which seriously limits the icy treats that I can buy. With temperatures rising I decided to create a bucket list of healthy popsicles that I can try out this summer. That way I can still keep cool with something from the freezer without actually spending the money or the health sacrifices to get there.

These healthy popsicles for summer are all sugar-free and made with natural super-nutritious ingredients. Thanks to the bloggers who have allowed me to use their recipes in this post! Some off the links are affiliate, which supports GWR at no cost to you.

Many of the healthy popsicles I’ve included use a nutrient-powerhouse ingredient in the recipe. You’ll find everything from kefir to kale as well as some superfoods that I haven’t even tried myself (yet)! Some of these recipes do include honey or maple or agave syrup, which you can choose to reduce or eliminate if that best fits your goals. Not one of these recipes includes processed sugars, preservatives, or artificial colouring.

If you don’t have a popsicle mold I recommend looking for a metal one such as this stainles steel one. I also think a silicon tray would be super convenient. I have used plastic ones in the past, but they always break or crack. Besides, I’m not keen on putting my food in plastic, especially where it involves extreme temperatures.

These are extra healthy as they include kale, which gives them their rich green colour. We grow lots of kale, so a version of these ice pops should be easy for me to check off this summer.

So in addition to the limes these creamy pops include an extra super-food ingredient. My guess is you’ll want to keep the sweetener in this recipe to balance out the tartness from the limes.
