Popsicle Season @QuickNHealthy Kitchen

Summer is Popsicle season. My son looks forward to our home made Popsicle that come in a variety of colors and flavors, but always with minimal and pure ingredients. They are so easy to make, so much cheaper than store brought and so much tastier as well. The best part is you can customize to your flavors. You can make them with just one ingredient, while others are made with a max of 3-4 ingredients. Compare this to a store brought pack and it will be a big list of ingredients, including ones that you cannot even spell, leave alone understand :-)….

So here are 2 flavors, a chocolate popsicle and a strawberry popsicle made with almond milk and sweetened with raw honey. As simple as it can get…, try them out and you will never go to the store for these again…



Ingredients: 
(Strawberry popsicles) 
  • Homemade almond milk - 1 cup (recipe here
  • Strawberries - 12 small (fresh or frozen) 
  • Raw unfiltered honey - 4 Tbs (adjust according to taste)
(Choco popsicles) 
  • Homemade almond milk - 1 cup (recipe here
  • Raw cacao powder - 4 Tbs (fresh or frozen) 
  • Raw unfiltered honey - 4 Tbs (adjust according to taste)
Equipment Needed:
Popsicle molds - here is my recommendation
Popsicle sticks
Vitamix or other high speed blender

Directions: 
  • Blend everything well using vitamix or any high speed blender. 
  • Pour into popsicle molds. Place the stick and stick holders. 
  • Set aside in freezer for about 4 hours. 
  • To remove just show the popsicle with the mold under running water for a few seconds to loosen.
  • This will make about 6 popsicles.
  • Enjoy!!
