Summer is officially on! The long sunny days of laughter and play with our kids in the backyard, the lazy afternoons by the pool and the joyful evenings by the fire! And one of summer musts are Popsicles , right? 🙂 Honestly I think that there is nothing quite as satisfying as a cold and sweet Popsicle on the hot summer afternoon .
So This year I’ve decided to start making them on my own. I figured that it cannot be difficult, and really it’s not at all. And by making them at home I can control the amount of sugar and the ratio between fruits and other components. These Popsicles are as healthy as it gets, being full packed with fresh fruits, low sugar and gluten free. But the best part is that they are approved by my two years old daughter, who didn’t even realize that her sweet treat was also healthy and nutritious!

Strawberry banana Popsicle :
1 ripe banana
1 cup strawberries
1 cup almond coconut milk
( optional 1 tablespoon sugar)

Mango banana Popsicle :
1 ripe banana
1 ripe mango
1 cup almond coconut milk
( optional 1 tablespoon sugar)

I’ve decided to mix the flavours together to create these pretty two colours Popsicles.
Wash and cut your fruits and mix them together using a blender or a hand mixer. Add almond coconut milk ( if you are allergic to nuts add coconut water instead ). As I’ve mentioned the sugar is totally optional, just taste it and then decide if you need to add some.
Pour in the Popsicle moulds half in half. Freeze for 24 hours.

Enjoy them in your deck or by the pool with friends and family!

    Nice post! I love strawberry banana! I have never thought of that for popsicles. Interesting! I’m not a kid anymore, but I might even want to try that myself! I usually get it as a shake! So good! Thanks for the idea!

    You’re bringing back memories with those popsicle molds! Of course … ours were done with Kool-Aid back then so I’m loving you’re healthier option!

    So cute! I love a healthy, yummy treat that kids love and I bet these are a lot less expensive than the fruit popsicles in the freeezer section and you have control of what goes into it! Thanks so much for bringing this refreshing treat to The Yuck Stops Here recipe link party. See you tomorrow! HUGS
