If you know us (or if you’ve been following this collab for some time) you know that Chan and I both live in Texas. A majority of our year is spent fending off high temps and trying to keep cool. While both of us have a special place in our hearts for shaved ice, snow cones and Steel City Pops, that artificial sugar is a treat we can only allow ourselves once in awhile. And, since I has a mini whom is on a plant-based diet, it’s always important for her to find options that are both yummy AND nutritious.
Even though it’s starting to get a little cooler here in Triple D, we’re always in the mood for something we can nosh on and keep in the freezer when that sweet tooth strikes. So, when Chan spotted a few fruit-filled popsicles in my freezer we knew we had to share the joy with you all.
Below, we’ve curated a list of 4 popsicle treats from around the web that you’ll L-O-V-E. No high fructose corn syrup and NO artificial flavors. All of these recipes are 150 calories or less and are made with only natural sweeteners! Let’s get it poppin!
Healthy Fresh Fruit Popscicles
As a mom to a child with a special diet, it’s SUPER important for me to make sure that she gets the nutrients she needs BUT I still want her to enjoy her treats too! These fresh fruit popsicles by Simple Vegan Blog are made with 3 ingredients: blueberries, strawberries and fresh orange juice. You can swap out any of these for your favorite fruits and the juice for flavored water.
Raspberry Coconut Popsicles
Raspberry, banana, coconut, and limes. Doesn’t that sound SO GOOD?! This recipe, courtesy of Chelsea over at Chelsea’s Messy Apron, is perfect for those of you who have a major sweet tooth. The contrasting flavors will definitely keep your palette intrigued and you can easily grab a good deal on raspberries as they’ll be going out of season soon. You can also swap out raspberries for blackberries, strawberries, or kiwi if you’re feeling festive!
