Berry Blast Popsicles Help Create Easy Healthy Dessert Options

Even if you don’t have a Quicksicle Maker, you can still make super healthy and super tasty frozen popsicles, you just won’t have instant gratification (and you won’t be able to make the cool two-toned flavored pops, like the ones in the photo above.) Here are a few guidelines for making cool, creamy popsicles:
  • Ditch the dairy. If I want a creamy Popsicle I use a plant-based “milk” or “cream” instead of cow’s milk or yogurt. Coconut milk, hemp milk (either homemade or from Pacific Naturals), or a mild-flavored nut milk such as macadamia nut or cashew nut milk. Note: nut milks can be made using a high-speed blender.
  • Experiment with different types of fruit! Certain fruits such as mango, peach and banana take on an ice cream-like creamy consistency when frozen.
  • Try adding superfood boosters! A bit of raw cacao nibs, gogi berries or gogi powder, chia seeds, acai powder, or pomegranate powder,  make deliciously nutritious popsicle add-ins.
  • If you have a high-speed blender, then try sweetening with dates or prunes instead of added sugar or syrups. Dates in particular add considerable sweetness when mixed with liquid. Note: the recipe below for Berry Blast Popsicles is sweetened only with natural “whole” fruits and contains zero added sugar.
