When I think of summer, a few things come to mind. Popsicles and lemonade. Traditionally, these things are made with lots of sugar and other additives. Well I have come up with a few healthier alternatives. MightyNest sent me some great products to help me make these healthier treats.
I am always looking for ways to use up ripe bananas. My daughter, Meadow, and I made these Peanut Butter Banana Popsicles together. She loves helping me, and this recipe was a very easy one for her to help with. You can see her in the picture below. If you like homemade popsicles, you may also like my blueberries and cream popsicles or my strawberry popsicles.
These popsicles can easily be made nut free by using sunflower butter instead of peanut butter. I added some chocolate chips to mine, but that is a totally optional ingredient. You can just do the peanut butter and banana if you prefer. If you love my 5 minute banana ice cream, you will love these!
I have made you some Banana Nutella Popsicles. Growing up with a German mom, we always had Nutella in the house. I had been known to sneak that jar up to my room and enjoy a few bites form time to time. Sadly, the store bought Nutella is laden with unwanted ingredients. So I created these Banana Nutella Popsicles to hopefully curb that craving. These came out delicious!
Unlike some of my other popsicle recipes, these are free of cococnut milk. In stead, I added bananas for the creamy factor. They go so well with the hazelnuts and chocolate. This recipe makes a small batch of only 3 popsicles, so you may want to double it.
Summertime is here and it’s time to bring on more popsicle recipes! Starting with these Healthy Strawberry Popsicles. Who doesn’t like popsicles? My kids love them, but the store bought versions usually include artificial dyes and processed sugar.
You can easily make your own popsicles with just fruit as the ingredient. I added the chia seeds to my strawberry popsicles because I like to add in a little healthy fat and also fiber.
These homemade popsicles are so simple. They have no added sugars. Vegan and gluten free. They take less than a minute to throw together. It takes the popsicles about 6 hours in the freezer until they are ready to eat. They they are there in the freezer for you to enjoy anytime!
I love these popsicle molds! They have a drip catch it’s less likely to make a mess. I know all you moms can relate! 🙂 If you don’t have popsicle molds, you can probably make this a sorbet in an ice cream maker.
These would really work with any fruit. I imagine raspberry, blackberry or even kiwi would also be delicious. So go crazy with all the fruit and eat popsicles all summer long.
I was going to post a savory salad recipe today, but I haven’t been able to get the photos finished. So I hope you don’t mind I share these 3 ingredient coffee popsicles instead. I don’t know about you, but I used to love Starbucks Frappuccinos. I am sure they are laden with nasty ingredients and definitely not dairy free or vegan. Well these 3 ingredient coffee popsicles are the dairy free and vegan version of the Starbucks Frappuccino. Can it get better than this? If you like 3 ingredient recipes you may also like my 3 Ingredient Chocolate Bars.
I was going to make this a coffee ice cream recipe, but I have been having issues with my ice cream maker. We put the paddle in the dishwasher and it warped. So now I am waiting for a new paddle in the mail. I promise when that comes in, I will be making more ice cream recipes for you all. Oh, and it you hate the taste of coconut, you seriously cannot taste coconut in these at all. All you taste is that wonderful creamy coffee flavor. So good!
I think the warm weather is here to stay here in Dallas. It’s been in the 80s all week. So it was about time to break out the popsicle molds. Eating clean does not mean you need to miss out on frozen treats. Making your own popsicles allows you to control the ingredients. These peaches and cream popsicles have only a few simple ingredients. My kids both love peaches so I created these peaches and cream popsicles for them. If you wish, you can also pour this mixture into an ice cream machine to make ice cream instead! If you enjoy this popsicle recipe, you may also enjoy my blueberries and cream popsicles or my dairy free fudgsicles.
These peach popsicles are dairy free and contain very little added sugar. In fact, you can omit the sugar all together if you get some super ripe peaches. My peaches were slightly on the tart side, so I added a little maple syrup.
