Homemade Summer Popsicles

Getting my 2 yr old to eat healthy foods is definitely a struggle. I am always looking for ways to incorporate more fruits and veggies into his diet and unfortunately I have failed on one to many occasions. 

The other day, I was feeling a bit remorseful as I let my little man devour a giant highly sugary popsicle. Then suddenly it dawned on me...I could be making my own healthy homemade version with real fresh fruits...and I bet he would love them just as much!

So, I purchased these lovely little Ikea Popsicle Molds and yesterday we threw together a scrumptious popsicle recipe that he thoroughly enjoyed (he ended up eating at least 3)!

I can't remember the recipe exactly because I just started throwing things into my blender (which is the best way to go!) but I mainly used frozen strawberries, blue berries, & a little bit of agave and coconut milk for sweetness...and a few tablespoons of vanilla Greek yogurt to give the popsicles a creamy texture.  

It makes me so happy to see my little guy enjoy his food (especially when I know it's secretly healthy!)

Here are a few other recipes I hope to test out soon...

Do you have a favorite homemade Popsicle recipe? 


  1. I love homemade popsicles! And what a smart thing to do by adding real fruit. :)

  2. That popsicle looks so good! I've only made a few flavors before, but I like the idea of adding Greek yogurt for some creaminess (and protein!).

  3. I just bought these adorable Crayola Crayon popsicle molds last weekend to try out. They were $3 a piece and came with three. I've found some "adult" popsicles I've been itching to try out from Baker's Royale. She's got tons of recipes.

  4. Love it! Makes me realize I realllly need to get a new blender! Also, is it just me, or is Nolan starting to look like Rushton?

  5. I am SO ready for popcycle season. You styled it so lovely =)

  6. You could sneak in some spinach or carrots into you mix when he's not looking. Usually they don't affect the flavor too much.

  7. Just like a smoothie, only frozen! GREAT idea!

  8. I want to try these right now! I will have to make these refreshing treats, tomorrow.
