31 Healthy Popsicle Recipes You Should Make This Summer

We love popsicles - especially when they're healthy!


Summertime is right around the corner. Before you know it, you’ll be trading in that sweatshirt for a tank top and shorts. Yes, it’s about to get really hot out, but I’m determined to be prepared. Instead of complaining about the heat, this year I’ll be ready with healthy popsicle recipes to cool me down on those hot days. I would highly recommend that you do the same!

These recipes are not only healthy, but they’re filled with fruits (and sometimes vegetables!). Most of them have little to no added sugar, thanks to that sweet fruit, so they won’t give you a sugar crash. And, you’ll get a serving of heart-healthy fruit along with the beneficial fats of Greek yogurt and coconut milk. Once you get started making popsicles, you won’t be able to stop! Go ahead and order a popsicle mold today to get ready.

1. Yogurt & Blueberry Jam Popsicles

Frozen yogurt is a well-known tasty treat for a good reason! Freezing yogurt and blueberry jam together creates a deliciously creamy popsicle that’s guaranteed to satisfy your sweet tooth.

2. 3-Ingredient Homemade Popsicles

There’s almost no reason why you shouldn’t be making popsicles when it only takes 3 ingredients to bring them together! These popsicles are super creamy, thanks to the coconut milk.

3. Creamy Dulce de Leche Popsicles

Honestly, what could be better than caramel? A caramel recipe that uses dates as the sweetener! These pops are healthy, but they certainly don’t taste like it.

4. Sugar-Free Peanut Butter Popsicles

This protein-packed treat won’t bring a sugar crash along with it. All you need is coconut milk and peanut butter!

5. Berry Cheesecake Pops

These pops look absolutely stunning, and they taste just as good. They get their texture from low-fat cream cheese and are sweetened with honey.

6. Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Pops

Before you think these are unhealthy, take a peek at the ingredients list. They star bananas as a healthy way to bring together the classic flavors of chocolate and peanut butter.

7. Chai Popsicles

Who wants to reach for a steaming cup of chai on a hot day? Instead, head to the freezer and get all the same flavors in a more appealing package.

8. Frozen Dairy-Free Chocolate Pudding Pops

This recipe uses avocados to give the pudding a rich and creamy texture while using natural ingredients at the same time. This summer, I’m saying yes to pudding on a stick!

9. Greek Yogurt Popsicles

These red, white, and blue popsicles are perfect for your backyard Fourth of July party! They may take some time to prep and make, but they will be completely impressive.

10. Strawberry Lime Yogurt Popsicles

Fresh berry sweetness meets bright and tangy lime. Sounds like the perfect way to cool down on a hot summer day!
