Have you ever wondered how to make healthy popsicles for you and the whole family? This recipe is so nutritious, made with real food, real ingredients, and tastes absolutely delicious!
Healthy Popsicles for Kids
If you are looking for a healthier alternative for your toddler or baby, these popsicles will taste sweet and satisfying. Maybe you are looking for a healthy, refreshing snack that is ready instantly for your whole family to enjoy. This is it.
There’s no need to buy freezies loaded with sugar with this healthy alternative. You will be pretty much making your favourite smoothie and freezing it in a popsicle tray. Super easy to make, no juice and no added sugar.
You can also make popsicles out of
a green smoothie mixture. Check out my Green Avocado Smoothie recipe.
Berry and Chia Seeds Health Benefits
Chia seeds are the perfect ingredient to add to smoothies and popsicles because they are high in fibre, antioxidants, omega-3 fatty acids, iron, and calcium.
These nutrients help our children develop strong bones, a strong immune system, to fight off free radicals, help with focus and concentration, brain development, and much more.
Berries are high in nutrients as well, very similarly mentioned as chia seeds are. They protect against cancer, promote youthfulness, fight inflammation, and promote regular digestion.
They are naturally sweet, so they help mask the taste of vegetables, like spinach, and other superfood ingredients you’d like to add that your kids won’t notice.
Smoothie Popsicles Made With a Blender
This recipe is vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, and high in fibre and antioxidants. All you need is a blender and it takes little to no time at all to prepare. Once the popsicles are places in the freezer, they are ready to eat any time!
Their flavour is sweet enough to give to the kids on a hot summer day while providing lots of energy, instead of a sugar high.
When I was preparing to make these popsicles I wanted to make sure they were sweet for the kids. That’s where the dates and maple syrup come in. Naturally sweet and full of fibre. These sweeteners are optional, as the berries provide much sweetness on their own.
A delicious treat that will keep you hydrated while giving you the nutrients and energy you crave on a hot day.
And you do not need a fancy blender to make these. Any kind of blender will do!
I hope you enjoy these nutritious popsicles that will keep you on the right track this summer. The fun part is, you can literally make them with any smoothie recipe you want.
