How to Make Healthy Frozen Treats!!

I recently won a copy of

ICE POP JOY

through a giveaway hosted by

Mommypotamus

The book has beautiful photos and some really great ideas for Ice Pops too!!

After reading through the book I felt inspired to come up with some recipes of my own-which I am excited to share with you!!

SO, my first idea was to use some fresh squeezed orange juice…

once I had juiced 2-3 oranges I poured the juice into some small glasses that I had.

but only 1/3 of the way!!!

I then placed plastic wrap over the tops of the glasses and stuck a popsicle stick in each one-the plastic wrap will hold the stick straight until it freezes!!

Once the orange juice layer had froze

I added some coconut milk and returned these creations back to the freezer!!

Once the second layer had froze I added a third layer of orange juice and froze that as well….

The results???

Orange Creamsicles!!!!

My kids were excited to try these too!!


These were so easy and fun for the kids I decided to try out some more ideas floating around in my head!!!

My next idea was to make a creamy coconut chia bar….something my kids could really indulge in!!

I started with some coconut milk and added in some maple syrup, chia seeds, and dried coconut flakes.

Poured it into molds and placed them into the freezer!!

SUPER EASY!!

I also put coconut flakes on the top before I added the lids…I thought this would be a fun little added treat !!

I had so much fun making these that I have 2 more to share!!!

Next I decided to experiment with a 2 layer pop…

I started with some bananas, chia seeds and a little almond milk….I blended it up and poured half into some glasses.

Then I added raspberries to the remainder of the mix to turn it pink…

Another hit!!!

Next I decided to make a 3 layer pop!!!

A TRIPOP!!

For the first layer, I started with some non dairy yogurt (my son is allergic to dairy), I added in a small amount of maple syrup and some blueberries and froze.

For the next layer, I used non dairy yogurt, maple syrup and a banana and then froze.

The the third layer, I used non dairy yogurt, maple syrup, and strawberries and then froze.

TRIPOPS!!

These were so fun to make and my kids enjoyed them too!!!

Which one do you think your kids would like the best??

  1. You’re out of control! LOL! We’ve never made popsicles, though we have unintentionally frozen green juice and eaten it like Italian ice. You’ve inspired me. I’ll check the Dollar Store for popsicle sticks today.

  2. Wow! The ice pops look great! Do they come off the glass easily?
    I’ve been looking for ice pop molds recently and had no idea a glass can do the trick :)

    • Thanks-I have been looking for some BPA free ones or at least some sort of better material than crappy plastic to use as molds and then I thought why not use my glass cups!!?? They slide out very easily..I just run them under warm water for 3 seconds!!

  3. Those look so yummy!!! I love making homemade popsicles. All of the flavor without the added food colorings, preservatives and artificial flavors! Great post!

  4. All of these look awesome! I love the tripop, I think my kids would go crazy for those! Except my daughter would need a much much smaller one, haha. It takes her forever to eat a small popsicle. I love that you used cups too, I need to try that. We have popsicles molds but sometimes I think it would just be easier to use a cup. Plus then you can make them whatever size you want with smaller or larger cups. Awesome! You’ve inspired me to make more popsicles. The kids love them and they’re so much better than anything you get at the store.

    • Yes, my kids had a hard time finishing it…plus the stick was too short for them to hold onto the fat ice pop!!! LOL They had to put them in bowls and use a spoon!!!

    • I buy organic maple syrup from Meijer, Trader Joe’s or Kroger and you can buy coconut milk at those places too!
      Do you want me to be on your blogroll?? There should be a tool or widget to add other blogs…
