When my friend’s children were having trouble getting to know neighbourhood kids, she decided she would become the “Popsicle Mom.” Coming outside with a few frozen treats on a warm summer day…she practically became the Pied Piper of popsicles. Whatever your reason, these healthy popsicles are fun to make and will keep kids coming back for more.
Before you get started, invest in a set of popsicle molds. Here is one option available from Amazon.ca, but there are many budget-friendly options to choose from.
7 Healthy Popsicles to Beat the Heat
Frozen Fruit Pops
Use this recipe as a base, but throw in whatever fruit you happen to have on hand. Great way to salvage fruit that is starting to go soft. Can’t go wrong with this tie-dye looking treat.
Nothing could be more simple than these pretty pops. Yogurt, honey and berries are all the ingredients you need.
Lemonade Cucumber Popsicles
In less than five minutes, you can whip up a batch of these spa-worthy treats. Sweeten with honey or maple syrup.
This was my childhood popsicle of choice and I love that there is a healthy option. Combine orange juice and Greek yogurt for this healthy, fruity option.
Cantaloupe and Cherry Popsicles
Cantaloupes and cherries together? Absolutely – this recipe is my first to try. Add lime juice, honey and yogurt for the creamy texture.
Sunshine Beet Popsicles
I think I could actually get my boys to eat beats in this recipe. Oranges, carrots and berries round out this fresh flavour.
What’s not to love about chocolate-covered fruit? I adore this simple idea of combing kiwi with dark chocolate. Load up on the lollipop sticks the next time Michael’s has their 40% off coupon.
Go into this warm season prepared with these healthy options to keep kids cool. And for free frozen treats, don’t forget to contact the Chapman’s company using this link. Every year each household can request a $4 voucher for free products.
