Healthy Popsicles

Updated on June 4, 2015

Popsicles - Healthy Recipes for You & Your Kids

Popsicles are so much fun, but store-bought brands can have some nasty ingredients (even some that appear and imply they are healthy). Luckily, making them at home is so super easy. I have a few creative healthy popsicle recipes below, but you could always just freeze your child's favorite 100% juice, freeze some grapes or dip a half of a banana in yogurt, roll it in cereal or nuts then freeze (remember to put the stick in first :). Enjoy!
