Homemade Popsicles Recipes

Popsicles are an obligatory summer treat; their smooth texture and sweet flavors always hit the spot when Mother Nature flips on the heat. But as refreshing as they are, they’re not always the healthiest selections when bought from the store. Fortunately, you can take matters into your own freezer and opt to create frozen faves for your family. Consider the following recipes:  

Fruit and Yogurt Swirl Bars

Fruit and yogurt swirl bars are an excellent way to sneak vitamins onto the summer menu. This recipe is made with vanilla yogurt, a bit of sugar, and a ton of fruit. It offers lots of variation; you can use fresh or frozen fruit and any type of fruit you want.  Sweet fruits, like blueberries, strawberries, and mangoes, make excellent options.

Strawberry and Cream

Strawberry and cream popsicles use ingredients that probably come as no surprise: Strawberries, vanilla ice cream, milk, and sugar. If you want a healthier, less caloric version, consider swapping the vanilla ice cream for vanilla yogurt.  

Peaches and Cobbler

This peaches and cobbler recipe may be one of the most unique popsicle recipes you’ll come across. It uses peaches, cobbler filling, brown sugar, spices, and ice cream to create a summer sensation that embraces the power of comfort food. 

Coconut Milk

This coconut milk recipe adds an element of creaminess that creates the perfect soft texture. It leaves a lot of room for creativity, as well. Choose from any frozen fruit (make sure it’s thawed) and any natural sweetener (such as maple syrup, agave, or honey). Mix and match until you have a recipe that your kids enjoy more than Cheez-Its!

Jello Popsicles

It goes without saying, but there’s always room for Jello popsicles. This recipe blends Jello with chopped fruit for an added pop of flavor and antioxidants (don’t tell your kids). It allows for lots of flexibility, too, including the mixing and matching of different Jello flavors. If you’re looking for a low-calorie version, consider sugar-free Jello.
