I haven't tasted a fruit popsicle I didn’t like. Refreshing as they are, most of the icy treats on the market are loaded with sugar and dyes that can leave your lips a Cookie Monster blue. This incredible homemade recipe below will put your neighborhood ice cream truck to shame. You’re in control of the ingredients, which means you can adjust the sugar count to your liking. With a few tools and a serving of patience for your mix to solidify in the freezer, you’re on your way to homemade popsicle heaven. And each little pop supplies over 50%of the RDA for Vitamin C and gives you a healthy dose of many other vitamins as well.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup sliced pineapple or mango (or banana) (60g)
  • 1/2 cup sliced strawberries or blueberries (80g)
  • 1/3 cup raw kale or spinach (omit if desired) (15g)
  • 1/4 cup milk, coconut or yogurt of choice (60g)
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • Sweetener of choice, to taste (amount will depend on your tastes and also on what type of milk you use. Remember that the frozen product will be much less sweet. Try 1-2 stevia packets or 1-2 tbsp of a sweetener like pure maple syrup.)

Directions

Combine everything in a blender, food processor, or Magic Bullet until super-smooth. Pour into popsicle molds or paper cups, and insert spoons or popsicle sticks. Enjoy!
