Now that it’s all of fifty degrees outside, my kids have decided that surely summer is just about here, and they are on a homemade popsicle kick to celebrate!
Here are some of our favorite popsicle recipes. Most of them work well with the homemade popsicle bar that we like to put together, some are recipes that you can set aside to surprise them with, and some are just for adults!
1. bug juice popsicle. Forget Otter Pops–these popsicles are healthy and vegan!
2. banana avocado popsicle. Looking for something for a kid who’s just beginning solids? This one is a great choice.
3. coconut water and fresh berries popsicle. This is the ultimate in light and refreshing, and a great one to make once all the local berries come into season.
4. cherry zucchini popsicle. The zucchini doesn’t affect the flavor of this popsicle, but DOES give it the texture of a commercial popsicle without any of those funky ingredients.
5. rainbow whole fruit popsicle. Don’t want to ingest a bunch of chemical dyes? Make these colorful rainbow popsicles with delicious, nutritious whole fruit.
6. double chocolate almond butter popsicle. This one’s for you chocolate and nut butter fans!
7. watermelon kiwi popsicle. If your kids like novelty popsicles with their cute colors, then they’ll love this one, which looks just like a watermelon!
8. almond milk popsicle. The funnest part of these popsicles is that they’re dipped in dark chocolate and then crushed almonds–it’s a technique that you could apply to any of the popsicles on this list.
9. margarita popsicle. This one is just for the adults!
10. veggie pop. If you’re looking for bright bursts of color in your popsicle, add veggies!
11. pineapple cream popsicle. If you’re craving a Dole Whip, then THIS is the popsicle for you.
