20 Best Healthy Popsicle Recipes

When the days are hot and sunny, few things are more refreshing than eating an ice-cold popsicle on the grass, the sand, the deck, or basically anywhere – no location is too unsuitable for a good popsicle. There’s a difference between the types of popsicles that are just sugar, water and food colouring and those that will actually support our health. That’s why we’ve curated our 20 Best Healthy Popsicle Recipes to help you beat the heat and nourish your best self.

These frozen dairy-free treats are easy to blend and freeze and make the most of fresh produce, healthy fats and superfoods. You can freeze them in popsicle molds (aim for ones that are BPA-free) or use small paper cups and popsicle sticks. Either way, you win. (And if you’re looking to win even more, check out our 20 Best Dairy-Free Ice Cream Recipes too.)
